Question time with cosplay extraordinaire Priscilla Kimm!

Cosplay is becoming increasingly synonymous with gaming culture as a whole, and you’ll find few fandoms as passionate about it as Persona. We’ve talked briefly about cosplay on the podcast in previous episodes, but now we’re going to dedicate an episode solely to it! Happy to announce that for Episode 43 of S.Link we’re bringing on cosplayer Priscilla Kimm!

Priscilla has been cosplaying for a number of years now(check out her work here), and has a wealth of knowledge regarding both the culture and craft behind the scene. You also may have recognized her *awesome* Rise cosplay from this past EVO. She’ll also be bringing on several of her friends that are also cosplayers too!

So if you have any questions at all regarding any aspect of cosplay, but sure to leave a comment below! We record this Episode on the 19th!

(PS: We’re going to be doing a Danganronpa 2 off topic spoilercast before this episode as well, just encase there was any confusion regarding the episode number.)

  1. Do you make your own costume or do you buy them? If you do make them, how long does it take and how hard is it to make them?

  2. How do you decide on a character to cosplay as? Is it just “hey I really like this character I should cosplay as them” or it based on how the character looks?

  3. Have you ever been made to feel uncomfortable at cons or events, whether by other cosplayers or con-goers? Have you ever felt unwelcome or harassed? Do you think there should be any guidelines/rules at cons to make cosplayers be able to feel more safe and comfortable?

  4. What’s your stance on store-bought costumes vs. homemade ones? Do you believe that someone is less passionate about cosplay if they buy costume rather than make them?

  5. Hi! So what advice do you have for cosplayers who clearly don’t look like their character? (IE: as a black person, I feel nervous about cosplaying a non-black person). What should I do? Should I give up on the prospect of cosplaying altogether?
