SuicideGirl Gamer of the Month: Mikan (Hopeful)

Why did you choose the name "Mikan"?

I chose this name because I love the character from Dangan Rompa, and in general I would have liked to use a short and cute sounding nickname.

How long have you been a part of SuicideGirls?

I have been part of this community since mid of 2019. My first set went out in December 2019 (but actually I asked to delete it, so its no longer in MR).

Where are you from?

I am from Italy! But my blood is not 100% Italian because in my family I had ancestors from Hungary and other parts of Europe.

What first got you interested in video games?

This is a really interesting question. As I also wrote in a blog here on SG, I started playing Pokémon Yellow at the age of 6. A family friend gave us the English version and this also helped me a lot in learning this language! From that moment I never stopped playing Pokémon and it was the beginning of my passion for the world of video games in general.

What are some characters that you have cosplayed?

I started cosplaying at the age of 14-15, I really did a lot of characters! The very first was Sakura Haruno, which I have remade over the years. I also made Nami from One Piece, Rem from Re: Zero, Yumeko Jabami, Misa Amane, Misty from Pokémon, and many others but honestly I have lost the count.

Any plans for future cosplays?

I am planning to do Nico Robin!

Favorite video game? Movie? TV show? Band?

My favorite videogames are The Last Of Us and Skyrim, and in general I love survival games/

My fav movie is Kill Bill!

Fav TV Show: Hannibal

Fav band: I have many bands I love, but Metallica remains my fav band ever.

Do you have any cosplay pet peeves? 

I don't have big pet peeves in cosplay, I only really care that the wig is faithful to the character. I like to choose fabrics and details and customize the makeup for each character I play.

Playing any video games currently, or looking forward to any releases? 

I've finished The Last of Us 2 and looking forward for Cyberpunk 2077! I am really excited to try it!

Who is your favorite Pokemon?

Mew! And in general, water type ones.

Outside of gaming and modeling, what are some of your other hobbies?

I love painting and drawing :)

Where can fans find more of you?
