Find out more about cosplayer SAMazon on how she chooses which characters to cosplay, the common misconceptions people have about cosplay and disasters that happen during an event!

Hi SAMazon, thank you very much for your time taken to answer our questions on SimplySxy. Can you share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?

I’m 22 and still really new to Cosplay. I officially started in January 2014 then had to take a year off because I deployed to the Middle East. I’m an Oregonian since birth and a member of the Oregon Army National Guard. Cosplay has become my passion and I have made so many amazing friends. It’s really addicting when you can nerd out with a bunch of people and everyone is so amazing and nice.

Where did your interest in Cosplay come from?

I’ve always loved dressing up. My mom was always buying random costume pieces for me, Halloween is my families favorite holiday. During school I always went all out for spirit week and even did a little bit of theater. Cosplay was just the next step in my love of costuming. Also being 5ft 11inches makes buying costumes a challenge so I taught myself to sew which opens up so many possibilities. Now I’m addicted to it and I’ve even gotten my family into cosplaying.

How do you decide which characters to Cosplay?

Choosing characters is the hardest part for me. I have a few questions I have to ask myself before starting a new cosplay. What characters do I love right now? Who can I relate to and would have fun being at a convention? The most important question is can I make this costume with my skills right now? My skills are always improving, but I want to be able to do my characters justice and execute the costume well. I chose costumes that will make me learn new things and challenge me, but I try not to bite off more then I can handle.


What goes into the preparation for each character you Cosplay

So much research. I find as many pictures as I can. Then I sketch out each piece of the costume and imagine how I would make it real. What materials will I use? What is in my budget? How difficult will it be? Then I plan my order of attack, so I can keep myself on track for the con I want to wear the costume too.

If you had the chance to have a superpower, what will you choose and how will your costume look like?

I’d want superhuman agility and reflexes. Why? Because I want to be a super ninja. So my costume would look kinda like a ninja outfit, but more super hero themed and would definitely have the color purple. Maybe I’ll make it into an original character cosplay someday.


What common misconceptions about Cosplay do you often hear?

The biggest misconception I hear about cosplay is everyone wanting to be cos famous and always winning contests. Cosplay isn’t about either of those things. It’s about the love of dressing up and needing out with people who like the things you do. I just entered on contest, not to win but to show off all the work I put into my newest cosplay. My roller derby Harley Quinn. I had a blast getting on stage, but I of course didn’t win. A lot of people who are “cos famous” don’t make a lot of money. They do it because they love it. Most of the time they will tell you they got lucky and happened to get to know the right people.

I just want people to know cosplay is for fun and if you aren’t having fun you aren’t doing it right.

Have you seen any Cosplay disasters which did not turn out as expected?

I haven’t seen any major disasters, but I have seen and had many minor ones. Things always find away to fall apart at the worst times. I had a belt buckle that fell off right before prejudging for a contest. Thank goodness I have an emergency repair kit in my bag. Fashion tape saved me. After prejudging I was able to go to a booth ran by some of the greatest people ever. They were running a cosplay repair booth. They had hot glue guns and a sewing machine, safety pins and other little odds and ends to help out cosplayers.


Halloween is coming shortly. Do you have any character in mind which you will be going as?

Well I’ve just finished watching all 9 seasons of Dragon Ball Z and I’ll be going to a Halloween party as Videl. I really love her character. I usually go for easy and comfortable costumes for Halloween.

It’s been a great pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy, SAMazon. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”? 

Sexy to me is people who love themselves and rock what they got. I’m inspired by confidence and find it very sexy.
