This week we interviewed dedicated customer, Chaos Fox Costuming! See more of her work via her facebook

Q:  When did you start cosplaying, and what got you started?
A:  
I believe I started cosplaying about 6 years ago.  Honestly I have always been into anime and all kinds of nerdy stuff.  I guess it all started with Digimon and the rest was just priceless after that and never ended.  So the initial process of me inter grading into cosplay was just very normal once I got older.  

Q:  What is your favorite part of the costume-making process?
A:  
Oh gosh almost everything, but I really love when the costume is just finally piecing together and your almost there and you can see the end approaching. 

Q:  Which costume are you most proud of?
A:  
I think I'm most proud of whatever is my newest costume almost all the time, but right now I'm also really proud of my Sayaka Miki cosplay since I feel like it was so accurate.  

Q:  Do you have a favorite Arda Wig style and/or color?
A: 
I really love using the Jareth long cause I love spiking wigs and that one happens to be one of the perfect bases.  Especially if extra wefts are sewn into it.  Right now my favorite color is baby pink since I thought it was perfect for goddess madoka.   

Q:  What advice do you have for new cosplayers getting into the hobby?
A:   
Never give up, never stop, and never let anyone get you down.  Continue to move forward and keep learning!

This week we interviewed customer, Raven Night! See more of her work via her facebook

Q:  When did you start cosplaying, and what got you started?
A:  
My first cosplay experience was at Anime Boston 2006.  I found out about the convention a week ahead of time, and didn't want to be left out when my friends were wearing costumes.  I had so much fun that I never stopped!

Q:  What is your favorite part of the costume-making process?
A:  
My favorite part is seeing all the pieces come together.  It's so much fun to see all the fabric scraps, jewels, and assortment of craft supplies that you purchased start taking form into something recognizable.

Q:  Which costume are you most proud of?
A:  
Everyone tells me that my Velma is my best costume, but I'm probably most proud of my Gajinka Flareon from Pokemon or Rosette from Chrono Crusade.  

Q:  Do you have a favorite Arda Wig style and/or color?
A: 
No.  I love them all.  I feel like it's just a matter of time before I have most, if not all, of them on heads around my apartment...

Q:  What advice do you have for new cosplayers getting into the hobby?
A:   
Do what you love.  Pick a character that speaks to you and just have fun with it.  The fact that you love it will come through with your finished product.  It's a lot more fun making something that you're motivated to do, rather than one you are doing because you think you should.
