Alias/Name to be known by: DaKree


– What got you into cosplay?

I discovered cosplay right after I discovered it after going to my first convention, which was Fanime 2008. My friends invited me to go with them, so I joined. It was really crazy just seeing the people in their costumes from the front of the convention center. Hell, I had no idea people actually did stuff like this. It felt like this cosplay thing was something I should try.


– How long have you been cosplaying?

4 years. I started cosplaying right after my exposure to the con scene. I debuted my first cosplay, Lan Hikari, from Mega Man Battle Network, at SacAnime Summer 2008.


– Were there any particular reasons you selected this character?

I became a pretty big fan of the Persona series, once I was exposed to it. I’ve always had a liking for the younger characters in series, but this boy was actually more different that the other characters I’ve cosplayed, prior to this one. He’s much more tragic than the shounen heroes I tended to cosplay as. Really felt like an interesting and different character to portray in pictures. Also, I like his shorts. haha


– What would you consider the most difficult part of this costume?

For me, it was altering the black stripes on the Adidas shoes I had to dark green. It took me a while to remove the wax protecting the leather with multiple cotton balls and acetone, so my paint could properly penetrate the leather surface. Was a messy job, but I think I did alright.


– What cosplay would you like to do in the future?

Too many to name. Might attempt Emizel from Disgaea 4. I get a lot of help from my friends when it comes to costume making. In fact, I’ve just been doing accessories. XD I’m gonna see how much I can do of him on my own.


– What’s your favorite part about cosplaying?

Definitely the social experience. I’ve met a massive amount of friends through the cosplay scene, from around the Bay Area, down in SoCal, up in Seattle, and others across the internet.


 -What do you like about our wig?

I ordered the 12″ light brown layered short wig. My friend, who styled it, mentioned how full, thick, and how easy it was to work with. I found the wig to feel very soft to the touch and comfortable to wear. I thought it was also very visually stunning.


Thank you,

Kevin Wong
