Model Name: Addi Roose
Q. What’s your name, and care to tell a bit about yourself?
A. My name is Ashley Roose- but my stage name is Addi Thompson. I’m 19 years old and engaged. I like to paint and take pictures. I love literature and music.
Q. What’s your favorite cosplay so far?
A. Kasane Teto and Marie Mjolnir
Q. What do you think was your least favorite cosplay, if any?
A. “Basketball” Patty. It was my first cosplay and wasn’t very well made, the wig and top weren’t good quality.
Q. Do you have any plans to work with cosplay modeling or modeling websites?
A. I currently model for a photographer friend, I hope to expand my modeling career, though.
Q. How do you go about creating a cosplay?
A. Well, I have a very good friend that helps with the main part of making cosplays, such as sewing and the painting of props and clothing. I can make horns and paint a few things like hats and such.
1. What materials do you use or recommend?
A. I’m not one to talk to about making clothes, but if you want to make horns (only the short ones, I don’t know how to go about longer or taller ones) then just go to the dollar store and get the green foam that’s used for fake flowers in pots.
Q. Do you have any hints or tips for other cosplayers?
A. Just have fun and love what you do. Don’t listen to jerks who tell you that you suck at it or anything like that. Just go out there and have fun. Oh, and if you’re looking for “the one” and haven’t had any luck, try going to conventions or meet-ups. Just get out there and make lots of friends and you might meet someone special.
