Hi Maka it is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
Heya, thank you for the feature! I am a cosplayer and model based in KY. I guest at cons under Abyss Walker Entertainment and freelance as a model whenever I can.
How did you get started into cosplay?
When I was 12, I was REALLY into the Teen Titans show and really wanted to be Raven for Halloween. Well, I didn’t like any of the costumes in the stores and decided to make my own. Upon doing research on my good ol’ desktop, I fell upon cosplay and never looked back!
Which common misconceptions about cosplay still exists today?
I feel like the one that I experience the most is people judging it as something adults shouldn’t do or should grow out of. I plan to cosplay Fortune Teller Baba when I’m old enough for it!!!
What is the best compliment you have received?
The best one was from a fellow cosplayer that I look up to – SuperKayce. She saw my Kellacun armor and asked what I had used to seal it because it looked so smooth! That’s a lady that I know knows her stuff, so I felt awesome to have something that I consider a small detail that the average con-goer wouldn’t notice… noticed! I spent MANY hours sanding that thing, haha!
What do you enjoy most about cosplay?
I enjoy wearing the costume and getting to embody the character. Second only to interacting with and discovering new people and friends that are as obsessed with the same things I am through this fun passion of mine!
If you could change one thing about the world, what will it be?
Just to give people an ounce more of understanding. Taking a step back and putting yourself in someone else’s shoes makes such a difference.
What song would you say best describes you?
Hmm… Maybe Fragezeichen from Nena.
What do you find attractive in the opposite sex?
I wouldn’t limit myself to just the opposite sex, but I think raw determination is the sexiest thing ever. Nothing like watching someone decide to accomplish something and totally conquer it!
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Maka. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy, to me, is odd. It plays into the question above – it’s super sexy to me to someone who might be insecure, but still overcoming that to do what they truly want in life. It’s fluid for me – rather than physical. Hard work! That’s what I love to see! 🙂 And thank you for the questions!
Maka will be at xcon in South Carolina in May as Kellacun and Omgcon in June hosting fitness and game panels.
