Q&A Interview with Dark Raven

Where are you from?

I'm from Germany. 

How long have you been cosplaying?

I have been cosplaying since 2014. 

What first got you interested in cosplay?

I played the game League of Legends and was a huge fan, so for GamesCom 2014 I made the costume of my favorite character, Sivir. By then I didn't even know that cosplay was a real thing, I just wanted to express my love for the character. In the end the costume was a huge success and I got in touch with the huge cosplay community here in Germany and since then I've just stuck with it. 

Do you watch anime?

Yes, but rarely.

What are some of your favorite video games?

By far my favorite game is still League of Legends but I also play MMORPGs like World of Warcraft and others. I'm also a huge fan of the German point-and-click adventures from Daedalic Entertainment. 

Favorite television show?

I don't actually own a TV but if it's series in general then I'd probably say "The 100".

Favorite movie?

I don't have a favorite movie but I love all animated Disney films like Frozen and Moana. They're my guilty pleasure. I know every song by heart. 

Favorite band?

I basically like all of the metal/post-hardcore genre. Some of my favorite bands are 'Crown the empire' and 'Sleeping with Sirens' and so on.

Plans for your next cosplay?

I'm currently working on a humanized version of Festival Anivia for some upcoming events early this year.

What is the hardest part of cosplaying for you? 

My biggest challenge in cosplay right now is sewing and wig styling right since I'm not very good at it and still learning. 

Aside from cosplaying and video games, what is one of your other hobbies?

I used to do archery but since going to university I evolved into a couch potato and now I love watching Netflix! :D

Where can fans find more of you?
