Here’s one of entries for our Valentine’s Day Couples Contest! Madi is cosplaying as Otoya Ittoki from Uta no Prince-sama. While she isn’t using one of our wigs for our cosplay we do have some wigs perfect for this character! We recommend our Chronos Wig in Apple Red! Look on to see some more about her cosplay!
-What inspired you to do these cosplay?:
I was planning to cosplay him for Anime Boston in another outfit, but I couldn’t wait to do that. So with some friends, we decided to do a Valentine’s Day shoot based off a winter magazine spread (outside in the middle of January @__@ so cold), so we could post the pictures in and around Valentine’s Day.. I originally had an idea to do an Otome Game style teaser, so that’s where the specific pose comes from (which you can find his “ending” here https://fav.me/d4yvtj0)
-What got you into cosplay?
I always wanted to dress up from characters from shows and cartoons in my middle school days, but didn’t realize that the whole culture itself was called cosplay until the end of my high school years. So in the end, it was almost like I was living out a dream: dressing up as a character I genuinely really like and to display that to other people.
-Why do you love cosplay?
I feel it’s a way to show respect (and in a way, give back) to the people who are behind the series and characters I’m cosplaying. If I take a true liking to a character when I play a game, watch an anime, or read a manga/book, I put the hard work into making or putting together an outfit for them. Most of the times, I can relate to the character and that makes me like them more. And it’s because of this hobby that I’ve been able to meet very good people and be a part of something that brings us all together.
