Hello SimplySxy, I’m Rinzje Baby, also known as Rinzje. I’m a cosplayer, costume maker and idea creator from Vietnam. I’ve been cosplaying since 2014 and mostly my costumes are self-made.
Until now, all my cosplay projects are cute and sexy female characters. I want to challenge myself on sexy costumes which can take more time than making normal ones. Sometimes I make props and armor, but I’m not good at that. I always try to do my best and find a way to improve more and more in the next projects.
What inspired you into cosplay?
I’ve been sewing since I was a child. My major was also Fashion Design, so I really got into clothes design and how to make them perfectly.
And then, I got interested in Japanese cute and sexy costumes. I wanted to wear them too! So I started to make cosplay costumes. My first cosplay was from a game I played, of course the costume was self-made. It was not perfect but I had a lot of fun, met new friends who shared the same hobbies.
From that time, I cosplayed and did a lot of original costume designs. My sewing skills improved a lot thanks to cosplay too!
How do you prepare yourself before each cosplay event?
First, is I have to make sure all the props and costume details are done. Sometimes it was done in one night before, but trust me, it isn’t a good way to start a multiple-days cosplay event. The easiest costume part to forget is gloves and socks. Socks/stockings and gloves can be bought anywhere so many times, I only realized that I didn’t buy them when packaging.
Wig, costume, shoes and all the accessories should be packed in one bag or suitcase that you can make sure you didn’t leave anything at home. If your costume or props is easy to break down, take a hot glue gun with you.
What is the best compliment you have received?
My most memorable experience is when I came to Thailand to attend a cosplay event in September 2019. It is the first time I go abroad for a cosplay event.
At first, I couldn’t find my suitcase at the airport. I was really worried but the airport staff (and me) wasn’t good at English so it took some hours, but finally I could get my luggage.
On the event day, all Thai friends were nice and friendly. I didn’t know anyone before but I felt like home and met a lot of talented people. The most interesting part is, I was being called “the event boss”, which Thai people used to call the cosplayers who attract lots of people to come take photos. I felt like another achievement accomplished!
If you could learn anything in this world, what will it be?
I want to learn more and more things.
I believe that everyone has their own talent. If we put our talent in the right thing, we will shine.
Now I sew my own costumes, makeup by myself, and set up the studio room by myself. But I want to be able to do more than that. I want to be able to make more challenging costumes, create more ideas, go to foreign cosplay events all by myself and be able to speak their language too.
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a party animal are you?
Believe it or not, I can be up to a 10! When I work, I work hard already so I want to party hard too. But I don’t do it regularly LOL.
What is a lame or awkward attempt a guy has tried to know you?
I think all other girls (who have many followers) received tons of messages everyday on Instagram or Facebook too. I think it’s kind of weird when you try to get close to a (maybe) famous girl on Instagram just by saying “Hi” and expect them to reply.
In real life, many guys I meet try to get to know me too. I’m a friendly person actually, but I’m serious with all relationships.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Rinzje. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I think a “sexy” woman is when she’s proud of herself, even she’s proud of her face, her body or her talent, believing in herself would make her elegant and “sexy”.
If you’re not confident, nothing would come. Especially, chances to promote yourself, chances to go to farther places would only come to people who believe in themselves.
So please, girls, be proud of what you have and always try to improve yourself more and more!
