Hello! My name is Hackee, I’m 20 years old and I’m a cosplayer from Russia.
What got you interested into cosplay in the first place?
At school, I became interested in anime. I followed a lot of anime groups on social media and one day I saw a post with photos of some cosplayer and I was definitely impressed. I found that cosplay is a good way to express your love for an anime series or for a specific character.
At that time, I associated myself with Taiga from Tora Dora and the cosplay of her became my first one. I really wanted to show how much I feel with the character.
Which are some difficulties or challenges you usually face when preparing for a cosplay?
To be honest, styling the wig is still a big challenge for me. I’m bad at wig making and I only cope with simple tasks like cutting the bangs or sewing two wigs together. If I need to make something more complicated (e.g. Akali’s or Catra’s wig), I rely on a professional wigmaker.
If you could be a cartoon character for real, who will you choose to be?
Ruby Rose! She is one of my favorite characters.
The idea of being a petite girl with heavy and powerful weapon in my hands inspires me for some reason. Ruby is the leader with the strong sense of justice and reliable friend. I strive to be like her: trustworthy, kind and decisive.
How do you like to spend your free time if you are not cosplaying?
Besides cosplay, I do my studies. I am a university student, so I spend a lot of time on learning foreign languages and reading educational literature. One of my hobbies is also related to languages: I like to do literary translations of some stories from Portuguese to Russian.
I also enjoy watching anime and TV series and reading books.
Would you rather have the ability to stop time or control objects?
I would like to have the ability to stop time. I think it is more useful and could help to avoid many mistakes, get into places that you’re not allowed to enter.
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a foodie are you?
7/10. I enjoy food for pleasure. I like to try new dishes and new tastes. And I would never miss the opportunity to eat out.
What is a funny or awkward attempt a guy has tried to know you?
I don’t even remember any really awkward or funny situation, but there was a guy who just after saying his name started to show me his photos from the gym. Like «here I do push-ups, here I do sits-ups and there I do pull-ups». Probably it should have impressed me, but no, it didn’t.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Hackee. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Being “sexy” is being confident about yourself and your appearance, it’s the perception of the human body as an object of art, it’s showing your best sides without overdoing it.
