ILSN Nerd of the month is Yuks General Cosplay. She is new to the cosplay scene and a advid gamer.
IloveSEXYnerds: Tell us a little bit about yourself?
Yuks: I got into cosplay since Anime Expo 2013, and after a short while I started working on armor building. I mainly work with thermoplastic, leather, Acrylic sheets, PVC, gesso, metal, etc. Plus I love adding EL or LED lights on my project! I don’t usually use foam or craft foam because I cant sand it (I am a primer and sanding freak…). I learned everything from Google and friends. I am also a part of the Compulsive Cosplay. Cosplay and prop making are fantastic. I am willing and ready to devote myself to them under any cost.
Yuks: 2013 Anime Expo I was dragged along by my friends. I was in my tin top, shorts and boots, and people started to call me Lora Croft and ask for pictures.
IloveSEXYnerds: How do your friends feel about it?
Yuks: They had no idea what cosplay was before, but once I started it, they became the first wave of fans XD.
IloveSEXYnerds: How much time do you spend on an average cosplay outfit?
Yuks: My costume making process is very intense and efficient. For my Frosted Ezreal cosplay, I spend only 4 days in total while maintaining 8 hours of work every day (I am a full time project manager in Hotel Management industry). The cannon arm took me total 7 hours including light set up, primer, sanding and painting.
