Q&A Interview with Angel Kaoru

Where are you from?


How long have you been cosplaying?

13 years.

How did you first become interested in cosplaying?

I have loved wearing costumes and Halloween since I was little. I've also loved anime for a long time as well. Cosplaying was just an excuse to put a lot of costumes all the time whether or not it was Halloween.

What are some characters you have cosplayed?

Bayonetta 1 and 2, Gamora, Black Widow, Mystique, Mt Lady, Jessica Rabbit, Poison Ivy, Mileena (MK), Dark Magician Girl, and Joker.

Any future plans for cosplays?

Totally! One of my dream cosplays is Tyrande from World of Warcraft. I'll also be doing more Marvel superheroes and villains.

Favorite movie? Video game? TV show? Band?

I love animated movies. My favorite is Inside Out. Favorite video games are Bayonetta and Super Smash Bros. Favorite TV show is How I Met Your Mother. And favorite band is Big Bang.

What are some of your hobbies outside of cosplay? 

Photography, photo editing, and music. I own a photo business in my country so most of my cosplay photos are produced by me and a co-worker. I'm still trying to come back to music. I was raised with music so I hope I can come back soon.

You mentioned you were a big anime fan. What are some of your favorites in that regard?

Totally! I love shonen and action anime like Hunter X Hunter; that's one of my favorites. Also Yu Yu Hakusho. Although I also love crazy and bizarre anime like Gurren Lagann, Darling in the Franxx, and FLCL. If you noticed, most of them are from the same studio creator, Gainax and Trigger.

Are you playing any video games currently? If so, which ones?

Yes. Actually I'm playing Bayonetta 1 and Mortal Kombat 11.

What would you say is the most difficult part about being a cosplayer?

Maybe the lack of support in some countries like mine. It's so hard to get a sponsor or someone interested in your job. You are rarely promoted. But you also need that financial support to make cosplays so it's hard sometimes.

Where can fans find more of you?
