Grand Prix Santiago was well supported by the cosplay community. We had a chance to catch up with some of them to talk about their characters and their love of cosplay.

Liliana (Eva Ortega)

Eve Ortega as Liliana, Defiant Necromancer

“I have been doing cosplay for four years. I taught myself photo editing with a friend, and then taught myself leatherworking, making custom costume for theatre. Then a friend told me about cosplay; I saw her pictures and I fell in love with the idea. So I started making my own costumes. I picked Liliana because I love strong women - I feel well represented by her. I also love graveyards!”

Nissa (Claudia Sepulveda)

“I like impersonating, making the costumes, and hanging out with people. I was at an event and I liked the people doing cosplay, and wanted to do it myself. I taught myself how to make costumes. I chose Nissa because she’s a warrior, she’s bonded to nature, and I love the elvish traits that Nissa has.”

Jace (Vicente Peromarta)

“I always wanted to cosplay; I like the geek world around Magic and the artistic feel of cosplaying. But I needed to find something that would match my physical appearance. I thought Jace was the perfect planeswalker to cosplay for me. I really like magic and magicians, so I thought Jace was just right for what I wanted to do.”

Avacyn (Lucy Moon)

“My best friend from school, he’s a cosplayer too. He insisted to me so much that we had to cosplay together, and I loved it. That was three years ago. Now I’m doing it more professionally, getting paid for it. I picked Avacyn because I looked at her artwork and I was, like, woah! I’d never done something with wings and armour, it was a personal challenge. It was awesome, I hope I pulled it off.”
