Cosplayer Spotlite: Blue Eyed Cosplay

This week we’re shining our spotlight on California cosplayer Blue Eyed Cosplay (she/her)!

How long have you been a cosplayer?
I started cosplaying in 2013, so it’ll be eleven years this July!

What got you into cosplay?
When I went to my first anime convention, I saw a lot of people dressed up as different characters. At the time, I didn’t know that was a thing people did! I saw everyone having so much fun that I almost felt left out. I wanted to be able to experience having that much fun at a con while dressed up.

Do you make, buy, or is it a combination?
For me, it’s a combination. I unfortunately don’t have a lot of spare time to make every single piece of a cosplay from scratch. I usually buy the main part of cosplays (ie: the outfit and wigs) and make the smaller parts that won’t take a lot of time for me to make (ie: horns, tails, small accessories)

What are your top 3 fandoms?
Oh my top fandoms always change every year! As of right now though, my top three are:
– Twisted Wonderland
– Jujutsu Kaisen
– One Piece
What cosplay are you planning next?
My next cosplays that I’m planning next are Azul Ashengrotto from Twisted Wonderland and Bunny Girl 002 from Darling in the FRANXX. I can’t wait to share them with everyone when they’re finally done!
What’s one piece of advice for new cosplayers?
My advice for new cosplayers is whatever cosplay you want to do: just go for it! You can be anyone you want to be whether it’s a human, animal, or even a mecha. As long as you have fun putting it together and wearing it, that’s all that matters. It’s always a little nerve wracking taking the first step but once you do, you’ll never want to go back.
Where can people find you on social media?
I’m on Instagram and TikTok both under the user name @blue.eyed.cosplay If anyone has questions, I’ll be happy to answer them.
Below is a gallery of some of our featured subject’s cosplays!
