SuicideGirl Gamer of the Month: KikiRoseIsABitch (Hopeful)

Why did you choose the name "Kikiroseisabitch"?

I chose this name because Kiki Rose is attached to all my other social medias and isabitch is kinda an inside joke with my friends from dealing with some drama before I signed up to the site. I like to add humor to life and not let things drag me down.

How long have you been a part of the SuicideGirls community?

I actually used to be apart of the Suicide Girls community back in 2014 as a Hopeful under another name, but I wasn't fully ready for that venture yet so I ended up leaving and coming back under this name and have made a better career for myself doing pin ups and doing cosplay and I am way more comfortable with myself than I was back then.

Where are you from? 

Originally down south Alabama, but I currently reside in Nashville, TN. I would prefer to get out of the bible belt soon though as opportunities are limited and I get bored easily and want to explore more.

What first got you interested in video games? 

My father had the original Nintendo and would play Duck Hunt and Super Mario Brothers with me. Then my uncle gave me the PlayStation 1 and I got hooked on Spyro. I love Spyro and Final Fantasy 7. I hold a special place in my heart for those games because of playing with my father and just being able to escape my everyday dull drum life.

What are some characters that you have cosplayed? 

Oh wayyyyy too many. Some of my favorites are Zero Two hence why my hair is pink. Yuno, Sailor Moon, Marin, Poison Ivy to name a few.

Any plans for future cosplays? 

Again, way too many. My whole career has been cosplay so I am always planning new ones. Currently working on Yor and Jinx as well as gaining the courage to work on an armor build of Spyro. 

What's the longest you have ever had to work on a single cosplay? What made it take longer to make?

A few months. Due to being disabled it can take me a lot longer than normal to finish certain costumes because of my issues.

Do you have any cosplay-related pet peeves?

Wigs in disarray. I always tend to fix mine and others' wigs when i see them out of place!

Favorite video game? Movie? TV show? Band? 

Spyro and FF7, Nightmare before Christmas, Friends, Star vs the Forces of Evil, and band I don't really have a favorite band per se, I just have favorite music and songs because I can go through different moods quite often and love various types.

Have you played the FF7 remake? If so, what did you think of it compared to the original?

I have. I loved it. I can't wait for the other parts to come out and see where the story progresses. It's a remake so I try to enjoy things for what they are and not compare to the old. I do enjoy the similarities of the OG and the new of course.

Tell me about your different tattoos.  

Well I just got new ones done by my bestie who just became a tattoo artist, which you guys will hopefully see soon. But the ones in my sets are special to me. The one on my thigh is of a daisy and a paw print from my dog who passed away back in 2016. I miss her a lot. My bestie drew it then I got it tattooed. The one on my back is a drawing I did in fourth grade. My back thigh bows are Nightmare before Christmas because I love all things Jack Skellington. I have a heart under my left boob matching my bestie. 

What are some of your other hobbies? 

My life has been consumed by cosplay I haven't had time for much else. When you are disabled and trying to survive by making a living on your own from a niche career you don't really have time for anything else except doctor appointments and buying more things for your business to create content to hopefully bring in more money to do it all over again. I do on occassion go to Disney theme parks because that is my happy place but that takes alot of planning, saving and making sure I am ok to do so. I would like to do other things because I have so many other interests, but for now I do what I can with the cards that I am dealt. Enjoy life where I can because otherwise you just go insane if it's only work, work, work, all the time.
