I have some NYCCcosplay interviews to share! The first is "Cosplay Tips" for the Howcast.com tea, who came by my booth and asked me great questions about cosplay, what I do in this community, and what tips I have for cosplayers starting out and wanting to compete! Thank you guys for being so interested in cosplay! (I weep a little at how short look in this video, since Ben was so tall and I am vertically challenged!)
Marvel Live also interviewed me alongside Marie-Claude and Riddle, while we all were wearing Marvel costumes. This is a first look at my Domino costume from X-Force, which I crafted in time for NYCC. MC was dressed as Ms. Marvel which she made entirely out of latex (!) and Riddle was wearing a fan-favorite cosplay of hers, Wasp. We were interviewed by talented photographer and Marvel web designer Judy Stephens, who also runs the cosplay blog on Marvel.com! You get to watch me trying real hard not to swear on camera, what with the Marvel youth audience and all. But while dressed as a battle-seasoned mercenary (carrying that arsenal of weapons and sporting black lipstick/eye tattoo), it was hard to give up the tough girl attitude lol.
In other news, I am starring in a Resident Evil fanfilm called "Ada Rising". It is a shortfilm written and produced by PlanetZero and Anime Matsuri. I was very happy when they asked me to step into the role of Ada Wong, one of my favorite video game characters!
Destructoid has the first peek at the film here!</center>
The filming took place in Houston over 2 weekend and we wrapped last night! Thank you again to John, Deneice and Alin for letting me be a part of this project, I am just as excited about the film release in December 2011 as everyone else.
GeorgeM Cosplay Photography grabbed a few shots of me during the last night of filming. Thanks so much!
The film will be released on www.AnimeMatsuri.com in December 2011 so check back!
