Cosplay Name: Mishamai
Base of Operations: Austin, Texas
Years Cosplaying: Under a year
First Cosplay: Tora (Tiger) from Juuni Taisen
First Con: Ushicon in Austin years ago when I was in high school; first con as a cosplayer was San Japan 2018
Cons per Year: This will be the first full year trying to hit cons and I have 4 done/confirmed for 2019.
Make Your Own Costume: I usually buy since it’s cheaper and faster and cosplays these days are so well-made and accessible, but I alter or make what I can’t buy like certain accessories or weapons. Costumes I have to make from scratch are usually my husbands since he’s a larger size and loves more obscure characters but it’s a great chance for me to practice and learn.
Make Your Own Props: Ones I can’t purchase, yes, so usually my weapons.
Do Your Own Hair: yes
Do Your Own Makeup: yes
Do Your Own Wig Styling: yes
Makes Your Own Wigs: I haven’t had to for any of my characters yet but I was ready to cut and sew two wigs together for Black Hole-Chan. Funnily enough, I really just had to wear one wig on top of the other so I could reuse the wigs if needed.
Bodypaints: accent body paint for Nidalee and Rena
Favourite Cosplay: I have the most fun as Chun Li but I’m also very proud of my Nidalee and Rena as they’ve been my longer builds to date.
