Q&A Interview with Kay Kay Cosplay

Where are you from? 

I grew up all over the world, but I currently live in the Midwest.

How long have you been cosplaying?

I started my cosplaying journey during my sophomore year of college, back in 2013! Even though I have breaks here and there, I have never stopped cosplaying completely. The world of cosplay has become some sort of a therapeutic lifestyle for me.

What first got you into cosplay? 

My friend Maria dragged me to my first convention (Wasabi Con) and during that weekend, I was in awe of all of the amazing cosplayers I came across. Their love for their character sparked a jolt of creativity that never died out. Now, I enjoy emitting that same energy and inspiration to others.

Do you watch anime?

Anime is life! Most of my cosplays come from Anime series or nostalgic 90's shows. Some of my favorite anime include, Fushigi Yugi, DBZ, Naruto, My Hero Academia, etc.

What are some of your favorite video games?

I enjoy video games like Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Minecraft, Fortnite, and Apex. Currently addicted to the last two... haha.

Favorite Television show?

Hands down, FRIENDS. Don't get me wrong, there are MANY shows I enjoy binge watching, but FRIENDS will always have a special place in my heart. Mainly because of the memories I have, watching FRIENDS every night with my mom. It has become my comfort show.

Which character were you partial to in FRIENDS?

Rachel and Joey were always my favorites growing up, but I've really come to relate to Monica and Phoebe as I got older! I also appreciate Chandler's jokes more and even Ross has his great moments. I honestly love them all. Even Janice's annoying laugh!

Favorite movie?

I don't really have a favorite movie, but the first one that came to mind that I always enjoy watching is 'Taken'.

Favorite Band?

I also don't have a favorite band. I hope this doesn't make me seem boring! I enjoy a wide range of music genre.

Is there a cosplayer that inspires you?

I have a ton of cosplayer friends and they all inspire me. Everyone has their own unique style and beautiful personalities! In the community we are in, I feel like it is like a domino effect where we empower and uplift one another. 💕

Plans for your next cosplay? 

Once my life settles down a bit (which will be soon), I plan to continue working on my second armour build, Squirtle from Pokemon! I am so excited to bring this character to life and can't wait to show everyone the final results.

Tell me something about yourself that nobody knows.

Back in college, I self-taught myself American Sign Language. If you search deep into YouTube, you can find one of my old videos of me doing sign language to the song 'Sure Thing'.
