THis months NERD of the MONTH is Miyuki Cosplay from Cananda! She is a Chinese Canadian from Vancouver Canada.
Ilovesexynerds: Do you have a mini bio about yourself?
Miyuki Cosplay: I’m a Chinese-Canadian cosplayer based in Vancouver, Canada. I’ve always wanted to be a video game character. The dream is to be a glass cannon sorceress who teams up with awesome party members to save the world (Final Fantasy style!). To learn more about me check out my introduction video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzisyDzl0JY
Ilovesexynerds: What is the craziest story you could tell us?
I’m terrified of heights by the way.
Ilovesexynerds: Do you have any projects coming up?
Ilovesexynerds: Do people recognize you when you go to cons?
Ilovesexynerds: Tell us about your website? ?
Miyuki Cosplay: No website so far! I have a presence on several social media platforms, but the best ways to connect with me are through my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/miyuki123) and Twitter (@MiyukiCosplay).
Ilovesexynerds: How did you get into doing cosplay costumes?
Miyuki Cosplay: My friend really wanted me to cosplay with her at Anime North 2012, so we both ordered costumes from China. Mine was really crappy, so I decided to make it from scratch the night before. I pulled an all-nighter handsewing the FFX-2 lenne costume and was fairly content with the results, and has been cosplaying ever since ☺
In a nutshell: started cosplay because of peer pressure, fell in love with it because it really is amazing to see your hard work materialize!
Ilovesexynerds: What inspires you when you choose characters?
Ilovesexynerds: Marvel vs DC vs Anime?
Miyuki Cosplay: Anime/Manga for sure! I absolute LOVE seinen manga (manga targeted towards males 17-40 years of age) and always read it when I’m on public transit, which is awkward sometimes because you never know when the next page is going to be full of nudity XD
Ilovesexynerds: What was your childhood like growing up?
Miyuki Cosplay: I was awkward and introverted, and immigrating to Canada at the age of 9 only made it harder for me to make friends. In fact, I didn’t have many friends until I started University. My parents were the typical strict and overprotective Asian parents, and wouldn’t let me go out or do anything after school. As a result, I spent most of my free time holed up in my room playing MMORPG’s under the pretence of doing homework. X_X Sounds familiar? Haha~
Ilovesexynerds: Where do you see yourself five years from now?
Miyuki Cosplay: I will have finished my Ph.D by that time, and probably will either be working or pursuing further education. Maybe I will have started a family too, who knows! Hopefully I will still have time for my hobbies! In any case I hope I will still be as happy and fun as I am today, and not let the stress of “adult life” get to me.
Ilovesexynerds: What do you like to do for fun?
Miyuki Cosplay: I have a lot of hobbies, but sadly not enough time for all of them! Other than cosplay, I also love salsa dancing, cooking, playing instruments (flute, synthesizer, guzheng), writing music (have a few instrumental tracks on my Youtube), and of course watching anime and playing video games!
Ilovesexynerds: What kind of music do you like?
Miyuki Cosplay: Is it lame if I said I like video game music? Final Fantasy music is my life, and I absolutely worship Nobuo Uematsu. His ability to instill tremendous emotion in the audience is unrivalled.
Ilovesexynerds: What kind of nerd are you?
Miyuki Cosplay: Tri-nerd! By that I mean a combination of music nerd, video game nerd, and science nerd. Forgive me if I make science jokes, it happens 😛
Ilovesexynerds: What is the hottest costume you have ever worn?
Miyuki Cosplay: So far it would probably be Battle Bunny Riven from LoL or RO Stalker. The upcoming Touhou racing girl is pretty hot, and I also have a Sailor Mars boudoir cosplay possibly in the making!
Ilovesexynerds: Favorite food?
Miyuki Cosplay: Food is the love of my life. If I had to name one I would say ice cream, but meat and kimchi chiggae also rank pretty high up there.
Final Fantasy 6, Chrono Trigger, Golden Sun, Ragnarok Online, DDR/ITG/Stepmania
