Why did you choose the name "Meluworld"?
I´ve been through many usernames in online gaming, like Melysa, Meluchiis, and all based around my name "Melisa" so that´s why the part of "Melu", haha. But when I created my page I wanted not only to be me, I also wanted to show everyone how I see the world. I don't like to live a standard life of 10 hours working for others and waiting until weekend to be me. I like to live my life to the fullest and want to show everyone how my WORLD is. So that´s why I think Meluworld is what fits better.
How long have you been a part of the SuicideGirls community?
I always think that if I have no ink on me it couldn't be possible to become a SuicideGirl, but I like to try because what´s worst that could happen? Just a "no" as answer?
Where are you from?
I´m from Argentina, South America. But I'm also a Spanish girl if we go into papers.
What first got you interested in video games?
I can say that it´s all my father´s fault! Chibi Melu waited for him to come from work to play Mario on Famicom (Or family, how we call it here).
That introduced me into video games, but life sent me through the path of anime and video games (in the era when it wasn't cool and you got bullied for it), match with my soulmate and here we are with the biggest Zelda collection of my country if I can show off.
What are some characters that you have cosplayed?
I´ve been doing cosplay since 2004 so I have made a lot of characters. Yuri Sakasaki from KoF was my first one and Lima from Saber Marionette is one of my favorite which I did in 2006. There´s a full list, but for that I recommend you follow my Instagram @melucosplay.
Any plans for future cosplays?
I´m making a full lighted Portal Gun to make Chell. I had it for years and I think its time to make it real. The cosplay itself is easy, but the props have to be perfect!Favorite video game? Movie? TV show? Band?
I can't say I have a favorite video game, but I do have a favorite franchise. It´s Legend of Zelda.
My favorite movie is Cloud Atlas. Love the way it talks us about freedom in such different ways. I think we all deserve it, but we have to be prepared to use it properly
TV Show? Simpsons for sure! It was born with me haha
I have to cheat on this one and choose two bands: a Spanish & English one. I love "The Killers" but also "La oreja de Van Gogh" is one of my favorites (with Amaia the old singer, she writes like a goddess).
So no tattoos?
The only tattoos I had on me was the one which came with the bubble gums. I'm so afraid of needles, I think I couldn't handle a tattoo session.
I admire girls who have tons of them. They are brave and strong! I think I am too but in personality, and not when my skin is involved, haha.
What are some of your other hobbies?
But if we have to talk about a hobby that only involves me, I like to write, read, and woodworking. I have a workshop which I do it for living.
What is something about cosplay that you find annoying?
The competitive side of it. I hate how people get when there´s something to compete about. Cosplay is about fun, but there´s always the one who talks crap about other cosplayers, or seems nice in person and then talk bad about you behind your back. When you are a grown up adult you learn how to handle these situations, but there´s so many teenagers into it. I don't say we have to make a nice community, but at least don't bother others who are doing what they like most.
What is your FAVORITE part of cosplaying?
I LOVE TO MAKE PROPS. My favorite part of it is make prop of guns, staff, and all that extra stuff that a costume has. My cosplay from Pokémon Black & White even has the berries from the game inside the pouch. Yes, they are inside the pouch and you can't see them in the full cosplay, but I enjoyed doing them so much!
Where can fans find more of you?
