»I got into cosplay so that I could show myself and others that I can, that I am able to transform myself into a character.«
I fell in love with cosplay in an unusual manner. I competed in painting competitions for a long time, and one time I failed to advance to the second round of judging. Then a character appeared in my mind and I decided that I was going to do something sensational.
And that's how my love for cosplay was born. Everything you do has to be perfect. You get out of it as much as you put into it. People can see the effort, especially if the masks are really well-finished down to the last detail. Some of my masks take months to make, and that's what I love about it. It's easy to find inspiration, since I have a lot of characters in my head that I would love to bring to life.
»It's a demanding hobby which will pay you rewards if you put enough effort into it. And the effort always shows.«
You can create a perfect life, you just have to fashion it. I would love to be able to make a living from cosplay. I know that's not possible in the Balkans, but it is in the USA and Japan, and if I get invited for a dream job I would drop everything and follow my dreams immediately. My dreams give me the energy, joy and motivation to be better and more precise, and to make even more challenging masks. In this hobby you have to demonstrate your talent every year, and my goal every year is to make a better mask than the one I made the year before.
People aren't very familiar with cosplay. But when they see me, they want to take pictures of me. At first they find it strange, but in the end everyone enjoys the fine detail and the authenticity of the costumes. Cosplay is a compound word formed from the words "costume" and "roleplay", and is a combination of the two. A good cosplayer has to be an actor, a costume designer, a singer and a performer.
If you work hard and have a goal, you can do anything in life.
