Cosplayers Around the World Feature : Meiji Greenie from Vietnam
4. What is your most memorable cosplay and why?
When I cosplayed as Reira Serizawa and attended the Active Expo Festival in Hanoi last year, together with my friends Rui Yujin and Hakimei. It was a very happy and memorable day because I could meet and take photos with my friends in Ha Noi. Furthermore, I was also be able to meet the two famous cosplayers from Japan: Yuri-san and Shiguma-san X”D They’re totally awesome!!
5. What is your next cosplay project?
I love Sound Horizon – a famous music band in Japan, so I’ll list them as my future cosplay projects. I also want to cosplay as some male characters, such as Ciel (Kuroshitsuji), Kagamine Len (Vocaloid) because I’ve never tried one before :”>
6. Tell us about some memorable experiences in your costume or prop making.
The most memorable time was when me and Rui making the props together for the costume of Luka & Gakupo in “From the sandplay singing of the dragon” version. That’s the most complex costume I’ve ever done. We went to the markets many times together to seek out for the right accessories in our costume. We had to make sure even the small details of our costume is good and correct. It was a hard time but I had a lot of fun cosplaying and making the props together with my friends.

7. What are some advice you would like to give to cosplay newbies?
Cosplay is like a form of art. In my opinion, just make sure that you express your love for the character and be happy with your project. Don’t turn “Cosplay” into something too luxury and fashionable but meaningless.
And last but not least…
