Welcome to another instalment of CosFriday! This week we bring you one of the great Cosplayers from Melbourne that you might see at Melbourne Supanova this weekend! Say Hi to Bianca Bella Cosplay!
What’s your name & how old are you? Bianca and I’m 29.
How long have you been cosplaying? About 6 years.
What inspired you to start cosplaying? The creativity in the costumes and warmth of the cosplay community.
What was your First Cosplay? Fado from the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
What is your most recent cosplay? “Woken” Mattie Hardy (a genderbent version of WWE Superstar, Matt Hardy)!
What cosplays are you currently working on? I’m mostly doing upgrades here and there of my current arsenal but I’ve got something special planned for PAX later on this year!
Who are your favourite cosplayers in the community? That’s a really tough question. There’s so much to consider and far too many people I adore, both from an inspirational view and a personal view. Honestly, if you’re bringing light into the world of cosplay in your own way, you’re my favourite. Do you. <3
Who else do you want to cosplay? Unsurprisingly, it’s a long list. There’s bunches of characters I want to do from the Legend of Zelda series, as well as the strong ladies from Vikings and a character from Skyrim I’m going to keep a secret for now. I also want to add more WWE Superstars to my cosplay arsenal.
Tell us an odd fact about yourself! I have an extensive collection of Garfield memorabilia.
If you are lucky you might spot Bianca Bella Cosplay at Melbourne Supanova this weekend but if you aren’t you can still follow them on Instagram and even YouTube! Want to be featured in a future cosplay spotlight? (or maybe even be our Cosplay Correspondent?) Follow us on Instagram and slide into our DMs.
And don’t forget that submissions are now open for our 2019 Charity Cosplay Calendar to raise money for BeyondBlue! If you are a Cosplayer, Cosplay Group or a Photographer with a dream, we would love to hear from you.
