This week we double down on bringing you all the cosplay from around the country with a Cosplay Duo from Perth. Say hello to Animeniacs Cosplay
What’s your name & how old are you? Scott is 30 and Keiralee is 25
How long have you been cosplaying? Scott has been cosplaying for 6 years and Keiralee for 7
What inspired you to start cosplaying? (Keiralee) I was asked to be part of a group cosplay by my friends and had a little girl come up to me and was so happy to see me cosplaying her favourite character! I loved that cosplay could bring so much joy to someone and it inspired me to start making my own cosplays and started attending TAFE to learn more about sewing!
(Scott) I have always been very into gaming and anime. So after attending a few conventions and seeing some really awesome cosplays I wanted to have a go for myself. I entered the 2013 Supanova competition and that was where we met in the competition line of Supanova 😀 the planets all aligned and we started dating shortly after. We pushed each others skills competing against each other and now we are engaged and have built a house together! ❤️❤️❤️
What was your First Cosplay? Scott’s was the Kurama from Naruto and Keiralee’s was Suigintou from Rozen Maiden.
What is your most recent cosplay? Our most recent cosplays were a Palico in Kulu armour and a Hunter in Brigade armour from Monster Hunter World for the Madman National Cosplay Championship finals in Melbourne. Which was our third time representing WA and we managed to take out the win! Mncc has been a huge part of our lives for the last 3 years and we have made so many new friends and made many happy memories!
What cosplays are you currently working on? We currently have a few on the go at the moment from Gundam, Kingdom Hearts and My Hero Academia!
Who are your favourite cosplayers in the community? There are so many great cosplayers in our community 😀 some of our favourites include @kaizokiru, @kirileecosplay, @giorgiacostumes, @Ayyrron, @Scuzzibun, @emi.apollo, @magicalgirlcosplay, @rafiraga, @adamantiumloz and there are so many more really good cosplayers that it makes it hard to list!
Who else do you want to cosplay? There are some many cosplays we want to do and so little time 😂 Every week our list gets longer! Keiralee really wants to do one of the new Cardcaptor Sakura, clear card costumes and Scott really wants to make Blitz from Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege!
Tell us an odd fact about yourself! Keiralee really loves horror movies and has a really large collection of them! Scott likes to build and fly RC planes when he’s not cosplaying. 😀
