Please join The Ogee Times in congratulating WildSpice Cosplay for being our "Featured Cosplayer of the Week" !

QWhat is your cosplay name?
AWild Spice

Q: What was your first cosplay?
A: Misty from Pokemon back in 1998 for Halloween; Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket in 2003 for my first convention. Yes, I've been cosplaying for about twenty years...crazy! Time flies when you're having fun.

Q: What was the first cosplay event you attended?
A: Big Apple Anime Fest 2003; it was in the Marriot Marquis in NYC and I have met several life long cosplay friends because of that convention.

Q: What was your motivation to attend your first event?
A: I saw people in costume online and thought "I would love to go to one of these...let me ask my folks!"

Q: What is your "featured cosplay"? How do you connect with your "featured cosplay"?
A: I don't really have a featured cosplay at the moment (working on it!); in my college cosplay days it was Lani from Final Fantasy IX. No one really cosplayed her and I loved the character, also Final Fantasy IX is my favorite video game. I also used to go by CCAmanda back then!

Q: What's your favorite part of cosplay construction, fabrication, etc.?
A: Painting and wig styling. I like painting because it puts my artsy skills to use and wig styling I'm still new at but it's fun to get to the final product.

Q: What advise do you have for someone who may be hesitant about cosplay, but really wants to do it?
A: Give it a try! Join local cosplay groups on Facebook and talk to people about their experiences and for help with ideas. Cosplay a character you love or connect with, and have fun with cosplay. So many people now and days take it very seriously, so remember you're doing it for the fun of being a character you love.

Q: What are you social media links/handles?
A: Facebook: Instagram: @wildspicecosplay Twitter: @wildspicecos
