Cosplay Interview: Jinouga Cosplay

After nearly 9 months of no serious, lengthy interviews, I am pleased and happy to report that I am going to attempt to bring you cosplayer interviews once again! I’m starting off by interviewing a young lady who goes by Jinouga Cosplay, who I found on deviantART. Without any further delay, go check out the interview!

Jacky the Nerd (JtN): What is your name?

Jinouga Cosplay (JinC): Esra [or Jinouga Cosplay online].

JtN: When did you start cosplaying?

JinC: I can’t remember; I think when I was 11.

JtN: Why do you cosplay?

JinC: Because it’s a lot of fun and I can let my creativity out with cosplay!

JtN: Can you tell us your favorite cosplay so far?

JinC: Hmmm; my favorite? I don’t really know: it changes when I make a new cosplay. But I really like my Nargacuga armor (Monster Hunter) and Legend of Zelda cosplays.

JtN: What is your favorite aspect about cosplaying?

JinC: Having fun with friends. Cosplaying together with friends is the best!

JtN: Have you done any group cosplays with your friends? If so, would you mind telling us about the experience of being part of/organizing a group cosplay?

JinC: Not really a group cosplay, just with 1 or 2 friends. I just ask them (or they ask me) if they wanna cosplay something together with me and they say yes. Ha ha. It’s super fun doing a cosplay together!

JtN: How do you get your cosplays together?

JinC:I make ’em! (Sewing and such.)

JtN: What would you say was the hardest cosplay to make yet?

JinC: Hmm…I think my Nargacuga armor! It had scales which I had to cut out and sew on one by one. It was a LOT of work!

JtN: What do you plan to cosplay in the future?

JinC: For sure a lot of Monster Hunter armors! And a lot of Links! But for now I got planned Skyward Sword Link with my good friend SyrupCookie as Zelda; and together we will also make Twilight Princess Link and Zelda. So I’m looking forward to that. I’m also looking forward to making Link’s magic armor (Twilight Princess), but I have no idea to what con I want to wear it.

JtN: Sounds like you have a lot on your plate for the future. Do you have any thing you’d like to say to our readers?

JinC: Yes. Hi readers! Sorry if I’m not that interesting to read about! And English is not my first language.

BUT, if you are interested, feel free to follow me on my Facebook page.

[Writer’s note: Jinouga Cosplay originally introduced herself to me as Esra, so I’m going to retain the original answer to question 1 alongside the answer she gave me post interview. All other changes/corrections were made using the writer’s best editorial judgment.]
