Happy Sydney Supanova Weekend CosFriday! Are you ready? It’s never too late to put something together but if you need some inspiration maybe this week’s featured Cosplayer can help you out. Hang out with Melbourne based Cosplayer, Graphic Designer and full-time awesome peep, Kokobelle Cosplay!
What’s your name & how old are you? My name is Bella, I’m 22 years old
How long have you been cosplaying? I started cosplaying in 2011, my first convention was Armageddon that year
What inspired you to start cosplaying? One of my friends from high school asked me to come with her to a convention, we both were big Doctor Who fans and thought it would be fun to go dressed up together as DW characters! It was so much fun dressing up as our favourite characters, and making friends with other fans like us and I have been cosplaying ever since
What was your First Cosplay? The 11th Doctor (female version), I didn’t know much about cosplay so was mostly pulled from my closet and from op shops!
What is your most recent cosplay? Widowmaker! She was definitely a dream cosplay of mine, and was super excited to finally get to do her. Me and my friend Scott (@scoobiedoobiedoo on Insta) worked hard on creating the gun, my favourite part is that it transforms from assault mode to sniper mode
What cosplays are you currently working on? I’ve been working on Alleria (WoW), K/Da Ahri (LoL), and Mad Moxxi (Borderlands 2)
Who are your favourite cosplayers in the community? I really love following the work of my incredible friends, like Blackcrane Cosplay, Kaori Cosplayer, Marmalade, and Cinohrui to name a few. Also some others from across the world, that I admire the works of as well are Alyson Tabbitha, Cestlasara, Narga Lifestream, I could go on and on, there are just so many amazing cosplayers!!
Who else do you want to cosplay? THERE ARE SO MANY!!! Jaina Proudmoore in the newest WoW expansion pack is definitely up there for me. I would also love to cosplay some more from Overwatch, and the new Borderlands game is coming up this year, so definitely want to make Tiny Tina’s new design too!
Tell us an odd fact about yourself! I can never really think of odd facts about myself haha hmm, I love being thrown around in the air! I’m a flyer for my uni’s cheerleading team, its a really hard but super rewarding sport and I absolutely love it! If you wanna check out my team head to @swinburne cheer on Instagram 🙂
