World Cosplay Magazine Spain brings you Kakiku Cosplay
At the end of February we introduced you to the group Kakiku Cosplay. They will be the Spanish representatives in the cosplay contest in the ECG, European Cosplay Gathering.
They have been doing cosplay for more than 10 years and have worked hard to reach the place where they are now, making their way among the Spanish cosplayers who make history internationally.
We wanted to ask them about how they have handled all the preparations and how they are doing.
We assume that you have led a crazy life since you were nominated as Spanish representatives to go to Paris. A few weeks away from your big moment…. how are you doing?
Wrapped in an accumulation of illusion, occasional panic, excitement and sometimes even incredulity!!!! (Are we really going to the ECG? OMG!)
Can we ask you about the characters you are going to characterize in the contest or is it still a big secret that you are going to keep for that special day?
We close to announcing it now (hehehe), but as we already dropped it is something magical, vintage and fantastic!! Our style.
Weeks ago we watched a wonderful video about The PowerPuff Girl. How did the idea of these characters that come up?
We have always had in mind to design a “punk” version of one of our most beloved characters. So, with The PowerPuff Girls we saw an ideal moment to apply this idea with our own designs. We wanted to be fresh but successful. We had no doubt that, despite the effort it would take, we were too excited to work out three new suits for each occasion of the final in Paris. In addition, the color and personality of The PowerPuff Girls fit perfectly for each of the 3 of us (they are very similar to us!).
We love animations and movies about our childhood and we always try to pay tribute to the characters who have most marked us in our lives, and the way we see cosplay you can only feel comfortable in the character if it really touches your heart!
Have you got everything ready for the big day or are you still preparing things for your trip?
There is still a little more effort to be made, but fortunately the most important elements are already off the list.
We know that you recently went as guests to a salon. How did you enjoy it? Will we be able to see you in any more before you go to Paris?
Yes!!! We are very happy because in one week we will be at the IV Salón del Manga y Cultura Japonesa in Bilbao and it is a great honour to be in the land of Usagitxo as guests!
To conclude, we would like to ask you to make an call to all our readers with the exact day of the contest and why you recommend seeing it.
If you like cosplay contests as much as we do, you can’t miss the event on July 7th at the Japan Expo in Paris! In addition, we will be very well supported by our friend Taifu (the Spanish representative in the Single Category ). The event hosts 14 European finalists. We will do our best at the European Cosplay Gathering and we are sure you will love to see this Great Cosplay show.
So, take out your flags and neon bars and cheer us up!
Kisses to all of the KaKiKu!
We will be keeping a close eye on the final in Paris and wish them the luck orld. You can follow all the news that will be posted until the day of the contest on their social networks:
