Cosplayer Spotlight: Miss Sinister Cosplay!
Updated: May 29, 2019
We are uber excited that we finally got to interview a cosplayer we love. Miss Sinister Cosplay! Check out the interview! Be sure to check out this interview! This is an epic article!
Droids: How many conventions do you typically attend a year? Which one is your favourite, and why?
Miss Sinister: I used to go to only 1 or 2 a year, but now it's around 3 or 4. I recently moved from the Pacific Northwest to the Georgia, so I'm still trying to plant roots in the area. Thankfully, Georgia has some of the best cons in the states (hi, DragonCon) so traveling to them isn't even a second thought anymore.
Droids: How long have you been into body painting? What was the hardest body paint project that you worked on?
Miss Sinister: I've been into painting/art in general since I was a kid. Then, it grew with makeup and studying art through school. Now that I've finally dabbled with body painting here and there, I find myself being painted more than doing painting on anyone besides myself.
Droids: How long did your Sith cosplay take to create? Did you meet any challenges during the process?
Miss Sinister: The outfit was made by Cristiane Tano, out of Brazil. The costume took 2 years, 10 designs, and 2 mock ups before it came to be.
Droids: How many cosplay costumes do you have so far? Do you have anything currently in the works?
Miss Sinister: Oh geez, the last time I counted it was over 40. I have quite a few things in the works, but I have to wait to see what my hours at my job are going to be in the next few months before I pull any triggers.
Droids: We are honoured to have a very special guest on this week's Cosplayer Spotlight: Miss Sinister!
Thank you for joining us for an installment of Cosplayer Spotlight!
Miss Sinister: Hey there! Happy to be a part of your Spotlight! Thank you for having me.
Droids: Easy/typical questions first. What was the first convention you attended? What was the most memorable part of that convention?
Miss Sinister: My first con was SakuraCon 2010. I had some friends who showed interest in the convention, but never wanted to go alone... so they just never went. Seeing how we had so many common interests, I said I would go with them. I looked up "cosplay" and found so many awesome images of people dressed up as their favorite characters... which led to my first cosplay- Orochimaru.
Droids: Which do you prefer more, creating your cosplay, or displaying it at events?
Miss Sinister: Displaying at events, definitely. I really like doing coordinated group costumes, so you don't really understand the effect your group has on other people (who would recognize your characters) until you're at a con.
Droids: Is there anything else you want to add about cosplay or yourself in general or perhaps promote something that may not have already been covered?
Miss Sinister: I will be at MomoCon, Anime Alpha, and DragonCon this year. Also, be sure to check out my social media/store!
