Thank you SimplySxy for having me for this interview. I am a cosplayer from China, currently living in Singapore. You can call me Yukiko or 小鱼 (xiao yu)
My cosname was supposed to be Kiko or 小鱼 (xiaoyu) in Chinese. But more and more people started calling me Yukiko instead, and I sticked with that name.
When did you start to cosplay?
I started cosplaying since 26 Nov 2016 (AFASG 2016).
Which characters have you enjoyed cosplaying before?
My favourite character to cosplay is Rem from Rezero. I have cosplayed many versions of her and I am planning to do more.
Do you have any other hobbies or interests?
Except cosplay and anime, I also love singing and playing the piano. I also love to play games like League of Legends and 王者荣耀 (King of glory)
What is your beauty regime like to look so pretty?
I think my beauty regime is focusing on skincare. Many people neglect the importance of skincare and focus on solely makeup. But I think skincare is important as well, as a good canvas to work on makes a huge difference.
Keeping a clear skin is important, so stock up on your face wash and a good makeup remover is super important. Also, even though I am not a day over 20, I have been using anti-aging/moisturising products and eye creams. And of course as a teenager, I do stock up on acne products on those days I am getting breakouts.
If you could be a cartoon character for real, who will you be?
I would hope to become any of the characters from Puella Magi Madoka Magica who sacrificed themselves for people they love to be honest. I think that is very noble and the whole story inspired me a lot back then.
Have you been in an embarrassing situation that is funny now when you look back?
When I just started cosplaying for about a month. I participated in a small cosplay competition cosplaying as Kuriyama Mirai. I prepared myself well with a short skit. There is a part where I had to swing my prop knife (made of wood by the way).
As I was quite shy back then, I was very nervous on stage and my hands was super sweaty. So during the performance, my knife swung out of my hands and hit the LED screen behind me, almost flying over the screen hitting the escalator behind it. I ran to fetch my knife and continued my performance blushing through out.
And of course… I didn’t win. My cosplay wasn’t that great and I flung my performance.
But it was a good experience and I got to see many other awesome cosplayers and performances!
What is a funny or lame attempt a guy has tried to know you?
Hahaha! Perhaps a recent one would be during Gamestart 2018, when I cosplayed as Rem Nurse, an event security checked my Exhibitor pass and suddenly told me he needed medical attention saying that his heart was in pain. I actually panicked for a moment thinking he really needed help, but then realized it was a pick up line….
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Yukiko. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I think sexy comes from within. It is a feeling, you don’t really have to dress revealing to be sexy. It is a vibe, something like a grownup vibe? (which I don’t have, so I am sad…)
