Hi everyone! I’m YoriMi, a cosplayer from Singapore. Nice to meet you all!
I mainly cosplay idol series characters such as (Love Live and Idolm@ster). I do occasionally cosplay game series characters from League of Legends. I love dancing and performing on stage as well. Do check out some of my performance videos on my page!!!
Where did your interest in cosplaying first come from?
I first learnt about cosplay when I was 15. I had friends that introduced me to anime and I fell in love with it. They cosplayed a little and eventually I joined them. My first event as a cosplayer was at Anime Festival Asia.
I always thought that cosplay was going to be just a phase of my life. It is a wonder to me that I am actually currently still active as a cosplayer.
That being said, I had never regretted joining this community because I met so many people that became my closest friends and experienced so many opportunities that I would never have without cosplay.
Which character have you most enjoyed cosplaying and why?
The character that I enjoyed cosplaying the most would be Sakurauchi Riko from Love Live Sunshine. I love her image color which is “light pink”. This makes all her costumes really appeal to me! Despite being reserved, mature and modest, there are times when she panics due to pressure and make mistakes. Personally, I can really relate to her which makes me love her even more.
Do you have any other hobbies or interests?
I love dancing and performing on stage! I have done many dance covers from Love Live, Idolm@ster, Tsukiuta and Vocaloid. Early this year, I even got the chance to perform overseas with my friends!!!
Have you been in an embarrassing moment before that is funny now when looking back?
My friends and I were planning to surprise our friend on her birthday. We had a separate chat to discuss about how we were going to surprise her. However, we were simultaneously engaged in another chat with our friend inside. I accidentally replied to the wrong chat about our surprise plans and let the cat out of the bag. It was so embarrassing!!!
Is there something you’ve always wanted to do or learn but haven’t had the time?
I have always wanted to travel overseas alone! Due to school and work, I haven’t really found time to do so. It has always been on my bucket list since then!
If you could time travel, where will you go?
I would go back to my primary school life. I miss how cooling the weather was and my life being stress-free. I miss those happy, innocent school days when I had so many friends and life was simpler yet full of fun. I wish I could return to those days and never grow up.
What is the funniest or lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
If I recall correctly, me and friend were hanging out in a Korean dessert café. There was this guy that kept staring and making eye contact with me. I sat there trying to recall whether he was an acquaintance of mine. He stared for a good 30 minutes then came over and initiated a conversation.
I felt extremely uncomfortable about the entire situation so I gave him a bunch of false information which I made up on the spot. My friend and I were trying so hard to laugh at my horrible lying skills.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Yori. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I feel that being “sexy” is simply being the best person you can be. Anyone can be “sexy”. Little things such as investing in yourself, having self-confidence and cherishing your love ones can make you real sexy to everyone.
