Contribution: Katy Angel Cosplay

Avengers release week continues to rumble on and that means one thing…you’re still playing catch up! Sorry to everyone living in a country where it’s not been released yet, but I’m already on the Spiderman 4 hype train! OK, so that’s a little exaggerated, but it’s not far from the truth. Add to the fact that the final Dark Knight Rises trailer has come out and the Avengers just seems to have passed me by a bit.

Avengers release week continues to rumble on and that means one thing…you’re still playing catch up! Sorry to everyone living in a country where it’s not been released yet, but I’m already on the Spiderman 4 hype train! OK, so that’s a little exaggerated, but it’s not far from the truth. Add to the fact that the final Dark Knight Rises trailer has come out and the Avengers just seems to have passed me by a bit.

Thankfully a crazy influx of new Avengers cosplay costume pictures have hit my inbox and revived my dwindling excitement in the movies release. One such cosplayer who caught my attention is Katy Angel and her Black Widows costume. Some of you might have seen her on 9Gag or Deviant Art, but for those that haven’t she looks fantastic.

I had a hunt around and found her cosplay profile, which is chocked full of awesome costume pictures. She’s a very talented lady who makes all of her own costumes and does her own makeup styling. Being Russian also makes her portrayal of Black Widow that much more realistic!

Yet again I was faced with a major predicament. There are loads of incredible costume pictures on her profile and I tried my best to keep to a select few. I failed.

I must add a note to this shot because I love it so much. Contrasting red and white always makes for a good shot but this looks extra special for me. It gives me a few ideas for my next costume shoot and hopefully will influence a few of you.

Q&A With Katy Angel Regarding Her Cosplay and Costumes

With our featured cosplayer being Russian it might be tough to find many pieces written about her in English. Thankfully she agreed to answer a few questions for us and I’ve done my best with to ensure that all translations are accurate.

 

1. What made you get into cosplay?

I started cosplaying because it is very interesting :)

2. How old were you when you started cosplaying?

Around the age of 16.

3. What was your first costume?

My first costume was Alice from the game “American McGee’s Alice”.

4. Do you make your own costumes?

Yes, I’m doing all the costumes on my own.

5. Where do your source your materials or the pieces for your costumes?

In order to find the right materials, I toured the entire city. Most often it is building materials and fabric shops.

6. How long does the average costume take to make or put together?

1-2 months, depending on complexity.

7. Do you design and make original costumes or do you create replicas of costumes worn by characters?

Most often I try to create replicas. With the exception of any small parts. As for the original designs, then I create them separately.

8. What would be your super power if you could only have one?

I’m not sure about the super powers, but I certainly would like to possess magic. To make this world more fabulous :-)

9. Do you attend cosplay conventions or events? If yes how many do you attend in an average year?

No, in my country conventions and events are very boring.

10. Who’s your favourite cosplayer? (Could be a friend or a famous personality in the cosplay scene)

I can’t decide. I always find something new and beautiful on the internet.

11. Who’s your favourite character to cosplay?

My favorite character is Alice in Wonderland. But I still continue to seek new ideas and characters.

12. Favourite TV show, movie and band?

I do not watch TV. As for the music, I prefer rock and metal, as well as soundtracks from the games.

13. Do you cosplay for a living? If not, would you do it if the opportunity was offered to you?

Yes, cosplay is my lifestyle.

14. What’s going to be your next cosplay costume?

It’s a secret :) I’ll never reveal my plans, so as not to spoil the surprise.

15. If you could cosplay as anyone and money was no issue who would it be?

I cannot say for sure because I have so many plans and ideas.
