Colombian Actress, Director & Cosplayer Catalina
Hi! It’s very exciting to be in an interview here, thank you so much! My name is Catalina and I am from Colombia, I’ve been a cosplayer for 9 years now and I’m very happy to be now one of the most popular cosplayers in my country. I am a professional actress and theatre director too, I think the “play” part of cosplay is all I live for!
What do you love most about cosplaying?
What I love the most about cosplay is to be able to represent my favorite characters from every anime, comic or movie and make the people believe I’m actually that character during a con or through a photo shoot.
Do you make your own costumes and how long does it take?
I’m actually not much of a cosmaker, I usually make all the props (armors, guns, swords shoes, etc) but I don’t really know how to sew hehe. I love crafting though so all that part in my cosplays is made by me. It usually takes a week or two depending on how hard it is to make the prop you are working on.
What is a typical day like for you?
A typical day in my life is just me going to the German language academy, going to the gym and streaming videogames on “Twitch” at night. If a con is close you can find myself working until very late hours on props, wigs and details of my cosplays.
Is there a food or drink you don’t take?
Actually there is only one drink in the world I hate and it’s the passion fruit juice, don’t get me wrong! Is not that I’m not passionate haha, I just hate that flavor since I was a kid; if we are talking about food, I consider myself a food lover, so serve whatever and I’m sure I will eat it.
How long would you survive a zombie apocalypse?
I think I would survive as long as I don’t need to go out of my house lol, so it would be about a week? I’m a coward and I don’t know how to use any kind of weapons.
Which is the sexiest item in your wardrobe?
I think it’s a beautiful purple and black under breast corset I have, it’s goth and sexy and it makes my body look really nice!
What is the lamest or funniest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
Omg! There have been a lot of these lame attempts but the one I consider the lamest of all is the guys who use the excuse of being professional photographers (they usually aren’t good at all) to try to get to talk to a cosplayer, I can’t count the times that has happened to me already! It’s so obvious and lame haha.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Catalina. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I would define “sexy” as the perfect balance between sensuality and cuteness, to me, there is a very tiny line which separates sexy from vulgar. You definitely don’t need to show skin in every picture for it to be sexy, you just need to learn how to use every inch of your body to state the feeling or sensation you are trying to put in the picture.
