Q&A Interview with cosplayer Jon Poli


Where are you from?  

I was born and raised in Syracuse, New York. 

How long have you been cosplaying? 

I made my first costume in 2007.

What first got you interested in cosplay? 

I've always liked dressing up for Halloween and once I learned that people dress up for conventions I felt drawn in 2007.

What are some characters you have cosplayed? 

I've done Nightwing, Robin, Gotham City Police Officer, and a Ghostbuster.

Working on anything now? 

I want to do a new Nightwing costume doing more hands-on processes rather than buying pre-fabricated items like vests and all.

Which cosplay took you the longest / most effort to put together?

I would have to say that the Robin took the longest because of how long it took to paint the vest and I had to out source the cape because I lack the skills for sewing.

Favorite movie? Video game? TV show? Band? 


My favorite movie is Ghostbusters 2. I don't really have a favorite video game. Titans is my favorite show that's currently running and my favorite band is Linkin Park.

What are some of your other hobbies outside of cosplay? 

I play Magic the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh!, read and collect comic books and action figures and I'm a paranormal investigator.

What kind of decks do you have for MTG & Yu-Gi-Oh? 

In Magic I primarily run a Vampire deck and in Yu-Gi-Oh I usually main a spellcaster deck with a focus on the Dark Magician.

What are some of the conventions that you have attended? What's the furthest one away you've ever been to?

I've been to a very small local con in Baldwinsville, Salt City Comic Con in Syracuse, Flower City Comic Con in Rochester, Nickel City Comic Con in Buffalo, and Niagara Falls Comic Con in Niagara Falls Canada. Niagara Falls has been the farthest one I've been to and I usually make it a weekend trip of it.

SuicideGirl Gamer of the Month: Khachery

Why did you choose the name "Khachery"? 

Khachery means Huntress. 

How long have you been part of the SuicideGirls community? 

I joined in 2015.

Where are you from? 

I am from Brazil / State of Sao Paulo.

What  first got you interested in video games? 

Street Fighter, playing in the arcade with a Chun Li. After we started competing by going to friends' houses with Nintendo video games, Mega Drive, Dynavision, TV with free online games, computer, PlayStation and Xbox. Always with games with a woman representing and cute games. I am passionate about fighting and horror games.

Are you currently playing any video games?

Yes, PlayStation.

What are some characters that you have cosplayed?


I made X-23 Laura Logan, Chun Li, Jigsaw and Videl. I did Zero Two and D.Va Overwatch. One will go out to SuicideGirls and the other to just fans. I asked for the next SG cosplay set to come out next year.

Any plans for future cosplays?

The next set in SG will be a cosplay set. I asked to release it in the year 2022. This year I ended up dedicating myself that I will make three more anime cosplays. I am never satisfied with making just one, but I need to be patient to get some details that sometimes take time. 

So get ready for four cosplays. Coming soon...A spoiler of them is Ram / Rezero.

Is there anything about cosplay that pisses you off?

Not really.

Favorite video game? Movie? TV show? Band?

Tell me about your different tattoos.

I have a lot of tattoos, and sometimes I don't think I have enough. Many represent what I like. For example, animals. I always liked drawing skulls and roses. And I'm in love with Antonio Hopkins because he makes a lot of amazing films too.


What are some of your other hobbies?

I keep watching my series', movies, and studying. Once you have kittens, you start watching cute videos, playing games and finding simple funny things. I love reading books, playing video games and playing poker, playing cards. I like to draw and I always try to do a few different things. Don't forget to stretch!
