How You Came Up With Name: Yun is actually a shortened version of my actual name! At the time I was working on my first cosplay, I listened to the song “Dearly Beloved” on repeat, and it kind of stuck with me, so the name is just those two things put together. It’s a little corny, I know haha
Other Known Aliases: My friends all call me Yun ^^
Base of Operations: Mostly at my home in Atlanta, GA
Years Cosplaying: Around 10 months
First Cosplay: Noctis (Final Fantasy XV)
First Con: Momocon!
Cons per Year: Around 3-4
Make Your Own Costume: Sometimes! But they’re usually bought and modified
Make Your Own Props: Yes!
Do Your Own Hair: This is actually something I feel pretty strongly about! Learning how to cut and style your own hair is super useful; especially if you don’t plan on living in the same area for your entire life
Do Your Own Makeup: Admittedly my least favorite part haha, trying my best to improve though!
Do Your Own Wig Styling: Wig styling is actually my favorite part of the process!
Makes Your Own Wigs: The closest I’ve done is modifying wigs, I hope to be able to make my own one day though!
Bodypaints: I’ve never done any, but I’ve been looking to try it!
Favourite Cosplay: It’s a tough one, but I may have to give it to Kaname Kuran from Vampire Knight! It’s not my best looking cosplay but it’s been a “dream cosplay” for such a long time and being able to realize it on my own terms made me so incredibly happy!
Number of times you have been to Dragon Con: I’ve been there for one day before and I don’t think I had the chance to really experience the con, I definitely want to go back eventually!
Patreon, Ko-fi, Onlyfans, Etsy, and/or Support Link: I do have a quick ko-fi account at ko-fi.com/dearlyyun
Lewds: Maybe eventually, I’ve been thinking about it actually haha
Nudes: None so far, but open to the idea
More than Nudes: This is one I don’t think I’ll ever be able to do
With Fairydevil Cosplay, we decided to do something different. We weren’t so sure if you really dug all the interviews, so we changed the format of the Up and Coming Cosplayers to just the Cosplayer Score Card and Pictorial. The score card pretty much asks all of the generic questions that a lot of you would want to know about cosplayers, and most of the interest is in the art, so we decided to let that be the focus.
So let us know what you think. Do you miss the interview? Do you like this better? We’re all ears.
