Updated: May 27, 2019
Hey everyone, Todd is here reporting for DroidsCanada.com. This week, we have been lucky enough to score an interview with StuckShocker Cosplay. We have been looking forward to posting this interview and we hope everyone will enjoy it!
StuckShocker Cosplay: Hay hay guys thanks for having me!!
Easy/typical questions first. What was the first convention you attended? What was the most memorable part of that convention?
StuckShocker Cosplay:The first convention I ever went to was MCM northern Ireland back in 2014. me and my friend dressed up at roxas and sora from kingdom hearts. I was so worried about going to something like this but my friend dragged me along and I fell in love with cosplaying and going to as many conventions as I could. the most memorable thing I can remember was smiling as me and my friend walked into the door on the Sunday and everyone wanted photos from us because we were the only kingdom hearts cosplayers at the event over the weekend.
Is there a cosplay you will not do? If so, and Why?
StuckShocker Cosplay: I cosplay I wouldn't do. that a very hard question to answer because ive done so many different cosplays that there hasn't been a kind of cosplay I wouldn't do if I enjoyed the anime, game or show it was from and I have done some strange cosplays so far. but if I had to choose I guess it would be.....I guess a boring or just low key cosplay. I love big cosplays ones that grab your attention and I could never see myself cosplaying someone that just wears normal clothing as their standard outfit.
What was your favorite cosplay costume that you've done so far?
StuckShocker Cosplay: my favourite cosplay so far, I have two, one is my stagyian zinogre from monster hunter and ahri from league of legends. Don't make me choose, I cant okay. But I love my zinogre its my favourite cosplay build as it was the biggest build I had made with huge shoulder large mask and just lots of armoured pieces, and its a dargon energised wolf....whats not to love. And Ahri, I love my fluffy tails it was one of the first cosplays I ever made myself and I have made three of her skins so far, check out my latest one of her star guardian skin.....yes my shamlessly self promoting myself...no you shush
Do you have a favorite convention? If so, which one is it, and why?
StuckShocker Cosplay: Qcon in Northern Ireland. It not the biggest convention but that's why I love it. its small everyone knows each other its local and its a really chill three days for us nerds to really come together and have a lot of fun....and the drinking....don't judge me.
What was the hardest costume for you to make to date? What made it so difficult?
StuckShocker Cosplay: my hardest cosplay has to be my fenrir from smite. it was a full armour build of a metal werewolf with a meter long spiked tail a full helmet with a moving jaw. I spent two week trying to figure out how to make the jaw move when I talked......then search fur suit jaw hinge on google and got my answer five seconds later. Don't laugh at me!
Is there a cosplayer that you look up to for inspiration?
StuckShocker Cosplay: I look up to a lot of cosplayers everyone has their own way of doing things. but one that has inspired me to push my builds further and to get in better shape for cosplays was leon chiro cosplay art. this guy from when I first say him hasn't let up in his cosplays and just the energy he brings to conventions he's at Is amazing.
Is there a Con that you have not gone to yet but aspire to do so?
StuckShocker Cosplay: is it cliché to say SDCC cause Im planning a road trip with a few friends to go to that in the next fews years. best part is I convinced them that for the road trip we'll be cosplaying as all four main characters of final fantasy 15. cause road trip!
Do you have a funny experience from a comic con that you want to share?
StuckShocker Cosplay: does getting really drunk in my ahri cosplay and dancing in the middle of a ball room in the middle of a convention count as funny? no? well.....I didn't do that....nope not at all.
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?
StuckShocker Cosplay: If your looking for advise on armor, cosplays or just want some fun why not send my page a message, Im happy to talk with all of you guys about this craft its something I have fallen in love with and if you every feel like you cant cosplay a character for what ever reason Ill teel you right now that your wrong and you can cosplay them. just look at me, I regularly cosplay girl characters all the time. has it ever stopped me having fun, hell no its made some of my convention weekend the best when people realise Im cosplaying the opposite gender of their favourite character.
It was an absolute pleasure sitting down with you! Congratulations on your continued success as an amazing cosplayer!
We hope to see you at a Convention some time!
