Lucky Luna is one of the first cosplayers I contacted for this series, and boy has it been a ride getting her!
'A student by day. 'By night a cosplayer, an artist, a writer, a gamer, and a podcaster, and a content provider for several media, Lucky Luna keeps busy and builds her brand.
So you are an Art Major at Georgia State University. How are the anime, video game, and cosplay scenes there?
It's Growing fast! I remember when there were only two cons in Atlanta, and only a few hundred atendees. Now we have plenty of nerd hangout venues and conventions.
The Metro Atlanta Area is one of the cosplay Meccas of the world. What places do you like to frequent here?
I saw that you are working on a web comic. What is it about?
I'm working on two series. One is a slice of life comic strip about me, my friends, and everyday life. The second is titled "Abiona," and it's a supernatural series about a girl who is granted an ancient power and becomes a monster hunter
What types of characters do you like to cosplay as?
I'm drawn to powerful types and femme fatales, but occasionally I like to go for princess characters.
How would you characterise your style of cosplay? Are there certain materials you prefer to work with?
I occasionally sew costumes from scratch, but when I'm lacking time and money I love altering clothes from Goodwill or even my closet. I'm diving deeper into the realm of learning prop and armor making so I can do cooler characters.
How does being an Art Major influence you as a cosplayer? How does one passion inspire the other?
To me cosplay is simply another art form. I love working with my hands, and a lot of painting, working with colors, and somethimes even sketching plays into my process.
As I mentioned earlier, the Metro Atlanta area is a Mecca of cosplay. Have you ever bumped into some hometown favourites before?
'My best friend, Final Chase, and my other good cos-buddies, Torimaniart, Stellara Nebula, and Chibi Magi Girl. I actually had an art history class with Kay Bear. I briefly met AllieCat at Dragon Con, and she's really sweet.
The funny thing is as a kid I had no idea CN was here. I was already a fan of supernatural, adventure, and horror books, and then I discovered Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon and Yu Yu Hakusho, and the rest was history.
What is your favourite local con?
Do you ever travel out of state for cons?
No, but I'm trying to attend Katsucon in 2019.
If you had to make a wish list of cons to visit for 2019, what would they be?
Could we end this with a con that you can guaranty our readers and your followers will see you at in 2019?
