This cosplayer has awesome armor! And while you read all about them, I’m going to put the finishing touches on my Archon 42 review!
WHAT IS YOUR NAME?
Well , my not very well thought through pseudo cosplay name is “Kryos” or “Kryos_Cosplay” on social media profiles , but call me anyway you like , Kryos will do. I was named The_Leech on my first cosplay competition though , but now i cringe a little everytime i hear it , same thing will be with my current nickname soon i believe. Kryos was inspired by greek word “cryo(s)” which roughly translates into “cold” or “icy” , i changed the first letter of it with my name’s first letter – K and there you go , Kryos was born.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BEVERAGE?
Hmm , since I’m still underaged to consume alcoholic beverages , I’d say its coffee or green tea … or even water . I moved back a little from sugary drinks a while back and I don’t miss ‘em.
TELL ME A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF.
I’ve never liked writing about myself, but I’ll try : I’m just a regular folk from Lithuania , a serious cosplay enthusiast , a gamer ,just a die hard geek in general , crafter , diy’er , metalhead , beginner bonsai grower , trying my luck as self thought home cook and a barista , i have a pretty , well , lets say – weird sense of humour , my self esteem is as low as my charisma and IQ always the most shy guy in the room. Loves cats
WHEN DID YOU START COSPLAYING?
Ughh , tough question . If I recall correctly , I STARTED working on my first cosplay in like brgging of 2014 or so . It was Deathstroke for my very first Comic Con , i worked on it like super slow , with no intentions to compete with it , then like at the beginning of 2015 , Lithuanian Con “GameOn” announced a cosplay contest in september , and i was like “eh fu*k it , im going to parcitipate” ahh , i was so naive , at that time i was only finished with the most of cardboard pepekura piece bases and damn , i didnt even thought that it would turn out so bad , so during the last few months of preparation , i started to learn a a lot about cosplaying , watching endless tutorials and stuff like that … and the only way i could make a situation a little better was to cover everything with automobile putty a.k.a bondo . well , needless to say , it turned out quite horrible , i didnt even manage to finish it all untill the deadline , but i still competed with it . it was an awesome experience.
WHY DO YOU COSPLAY?
Ahhh, cosplaying has became my life recently, I mean, its the escape from reality I needed so desperately when I was a kid, and I still do . Damn , you can become literally any character you want instead of the usual, boring “self”. You can be the type of guy or gal you always wanted to be. And of course, the whole crafting process is fun and you meet a ton of awesome people with same interests in cons or through social media.
WHO ARE YOUR COSPLAY IDOLS?
Oh my god ! i have quite some and my fanboying towards them is a little bit too exaggerated , i mean i even make pretty big , well thought gifts bags for them before meeting ‘em haha ! thus showing my gratitude in what they do . ok i will try to name a few : Maul_Cosplay , Santatory , TimeForLemonTea , Kairi , Shappi , TeamParaluna , Violet_cosplay , Foxtail_Agota and many , many more
WHAT TYPES OF COSPLAY DO YOU DO?
I do and mostly plan to cosplay as characters from video games , for some reason villains and anti-heroes are a bit more fun to coaplay as haha ! but who knows , maybe in the future my source of inspiration will change
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE COSPLAYS?
Well , as i said , im a newbie in cosplaying and Deathstroke is currently the only one finished , so lets say that Deathsteoke is my fav hahha
WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU WANT TO COSPLAY BUT PROBABLY NEVER WILL?
A character of other gender , i mean , i think it would be fun , but ima bit afraid to do it.
DO YOU MAKE, BUY, OR SPECIAL ORDER YOUR COSPLAYS?
I make mine . Everything from scratch. I even avoid pre made prints or tutorials , its just more fun and challenging this way.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT COSPLAY?
I think that i’ve already covered it . its a fun craft to do , and since its kind of an social activity , you meet a ton of awesome people
WHAT IS THE MOST DIFFICULT THING FOR YOU ABOUT COSPLAY?
Damn , there is a lot of difficult things in this hobby , for me i think that would be fitting pattern making and making the piece to be comfortable to wear.
WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER TO COSPLAY?
Said that already , its Deathstroke haha ! but when i will finish my Daedric Armour , i think it will be my new fav
IF YOU COULD LIVE IN OR VISIT ANY FANTASY WORLD, WHERE WOULD YOU GO?
Anywhere but our cruel world . I’d actually like to live in Avatar world (not those blue tall dudes), yeah i know that i would most likely wouldnt be a bender there , but eh , it still seems fun .
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION FOR YOUR COSPLAYS?
Most of it comes from simple compliments like “neat costume dude” “oh this progress piece looks cool , looking towards the finished piece” i mean i dont want to dissapoint those people. And seeing other’s awesome creations makes me do my best too.
WHAT ARE YOUR “FANDOMS”?
