How did you experienced the collaboration?
”I really enjoyed the collaboration. It connects totally with everything I do. I used it with a lot of fun and I still do.”
You have received different products: The Dremeltool, the 3D printer and the glue gun. Which product did you most enjoy to work with?
”Oeh that is a though one, because they are all so different. You use every tool for something else. The tool I used most was the Dremeltool and the glue gun because you can use it for everything.”
Yes, because with the Dremeltool you can among others engrave, scrub and you use it for your specialty. Making cosplay suits, how did you end up in the world of cosplay?
”Well pfoe, I was at the Dutch Comic Con one day. At the fair I did make-up for some kind of demonstration, I did not see much of the fair but I saw all those people with beautiful creations and thought how pretty is that and then I started digging in the cosplay. At that time a whole new world opened for me, I thought wow how cool!”
In the cosplay world you can lose your own creativity totally, did you wanted to do this when you were little or..?
”Haha, when I was little I wanted to be an archaeologist something totally different, usually it is something like a veterinarian or dolphin trainster but I wanted to be an archeaologist. Yes, the passion for Cosplay is actually originated by itself.”
Back in the days were you already out of creativity in terms of crafts?
”Yes a lot, I was really busy with visual arts and at elementary school I loved tinkering already.”
At this moment you are completely in the world of cosplay, do you have any people you look up to?
”Oh yes definitely, so many there are off course a lot famous people on Youtube and Instagram. They really make the most beautiful creations and have already made dozens of costumes. I know how much time it costs and I have so much admiration for it.”
You always make beautiful videos in which you make your costumes,on what video are you most proud?
”I think on the costume of Kida, the blue armor. That was my first real costume, I have seen so many tutorials before. I thought now I am going to try it and immediately I was so proud.”
Is it also the character that appeals you most?
”In terms of character it does not matter to me that much. But it is pure the thinking of such a costume, you can do literally anything you want.”
You videos are always very pretty, do you edit them?
”Yes, I edit them by myself.”
You are completely in the world of Youtube and Cosplay right now, do you think you’re still in this world over about ten years?
”Yes I think so, at least if Youtube still exists. I prefer going on with Youtube and Instagram. I am able to lose all my creativity and I mostly enjoy to hear from my followers what they have left from my videos or that they eventually tried something.”
You inspire your followers with your videos do you get nice reactions on the videos?
”Yes always and that is what I like a lot.”
