Here is one of the entries for our Valentine’s Day Couples Contest! Mike and Benita are cosplaying as Groose and Zelda respectively from the game The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword! Mike used our Aphrodite Wig in Dark Red wig for Groose, while Benita used our Nyx Wig in Autumn Gold for Zelda. Read on to learn more about these cosplayers!
-What inspired you to do these cosplays?
I knew Mike would make a perfect Groose, and the rest just followed from there.
-What got you into cosplay?
I’ve always loved creating things and dressing up. When Mike suggested doing a couples cosplay for an upcoming con, I ran with it to an extent that even surprised him. Frankly, it surprised me too!
-Why do you love cosplay?
I love creating, but I’m not particularly creative. Cosplay gives me a framework so I can use my skills to bring something to life, but without the pressure of imagining something completely new. Plus, going to cons is so much fun! Definitely makes up for all the sleepness nights trying to figure out how I managed to cut the waistband on my Riza Hawkeye pants wrong… but I’m not dwelling on it or anything.
