CF. How did you get into cosplay, who did you portray first, and why?
AB:I saw a picture of a Link cosplay from the Legend of Zelda on a page called 9gag in 2011. I
loved the character and the costumes looked so good, so I was wondering if I could dress up too.
I found out that Cosplay is actually a thing and so I asked a few friends if they wanted to make
some costumes. We were 4 people and portrayed the 4 Pretty Cure Bloom magical girls in 2012.
I was Cure Marine 😀 I unfortunately don’t have any pictures but I loved the feeling of wearing
it and since then I’m into cosplay.
CF. What’s the best part of cosplay?
AB:EVERYTHING is great, but there are 2 moments I love the most. First is the moment when you
first try on some pieces of the costume you’re creating and you start recognizing it as the
character it’s going to be and you just feel amazing cause you created something.
The second moment is when you’re at a con with your costume and people start recognizing you
and take pictures. I love it especially when little kids think I’m the actual person from the anime
they watched and want to hug me, so good!
CF. If you could be any super hero or villain who would you be and why?
AB:That’s difficult…I think the Joker from Batman. I love how clever he is and how he’s bringing
chaos and panic to the world 😀
CF. If you could meet anyone in the world dead or alive who would it be and what would you say to them?
AB:I would love to meet the Cosplay Star Jessica Nigri. I love her work and her personality and I
think she’s a really cool person to hang out with! I’d probably talk about cosplay and games and
CF. What’s your favorite sci-fi movie and what captivates about the plot?
AB:The Dark Knight! It’s the only movie I can watch over and over again without getting bored.
The Joker is so brilliant and I love Batman. Great movie 😀
CF. What’s the craziest thing a fan sent you or requested?
AB:One fan once wrote a poem for me, it’s nothing really crazy but still really cute ;D
CF. What sidekick would you hire to be your personal assistant and why?
AB:Barnacle Boy! That’s more like a funny idea but his character is so perfect to be my assistant, a
bit difficult to describe though 😀
CF. What character intimidates the heck out of you, why, and when will you attempt take the challenge to portray them?
AB:I love Fynn Fish from Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne! In the Manga she has like 4 outfits and one day
I’ll make them all, and with one day I mean the day when I finally have money for it 😀
She is just so cute and lovely, I will always love her! :DD
CF. Do you know a lot about the series you cosplay?
AB:Yes! I only portray the characters I love and know. If I would dress as a character I dont know
I wouldn’t get the cosplay feeling, and this is, for me, the most important part.
CF. What’s your favorite comic con to attend and what makes it so special?
AB:There aren’t many comic cons in the area where I live, but one of my favourite cons is definetely
the DoKoMi in Düsseldorf. It’s an anime con and so much fun! No matter what, you will never
get bored there and have always a lot of interesting people to meet and things to see!
CF. What comic con’s are definitely attending this year?
AB:Gamescom! After that I don’t know yet. Maybe Connichi, maybe yukon, we’ll see 🙂
CF. What’s one thing you wish fans wouldn’t do?
AB:Some fans turn into haters, when cosplayers don’t portray their favourite character perfectly, I
really wish they wouln’t be so negative about mistakes
CF. Who was your favorite character to portray and what rocked about it?
AB:Katarina from League of Legends! I LOVED the hundred of swords and the mobility I have with
this costume, so great 🙂
CF. How do you keep cosplay fun?
AB:When I get bored from a character or the cosplay, I just watch the anime again or play the game
so I remember why I’m working on this costume, this helps a lot to keep working on it, even if
it looks hopeless 😀
CF. Where can new fans go to follow you?
AB:I post a lot of stuff from my cosplay and normal life on my facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/AnissaBaddourCosplay . But I also have a Deviantart
anissabaddourcosplay.deviantart.com and I’m a member on Worldcosplay
CF. Other than this interview, what’s the craziest thing you agreed to do?
AB:Finishing 5 half done Costumes in one night. It doesn’t sound crazy, but this was! Most
cosplayers probably know that, last day before con and you work like crazy so you get done in
CF. In your opinion what’s the meaning of life?
AB:Definetely having fun and being happy. You don’t need a lot of money if your job isn’t making
you happy. Always do what you love and respect everyone, and you’ll have a great time on earth
