Today, I'm so honored to feature the lovely LexisKittyCosplay. I've been following her jpurney for SO LONG, and I'm so entranced by all her work! Read her full interview below!
My name is Alexis aka LexisKittyCosplay, I am 20 years old and love cosplay.
How and when did you get into cosplay, and how did you choose your cosplay name?
I got into cosplay about 4 years ago now. I got into cosplay when I went to my first convention anime weekend Atlanta. I knew of cosplay but did not know the extent of what people did or how they did it. I did bring "cosplays" to my first convention but they were just thrown together. After my first convention and seeing all the cosplays i decided to try out for reals cosplay. My cosplay name Lexis is my real name Alexis but without the A, Kitty is because I love kitties and cat girls, and cosplay because I cosplay.
What do you do when you're not in cosplay or geeking out?
Outside of cosplaying I am a full time college student studying merchandising and design. But I also technically own a business which is based around my modeling and cosplaying.
Who is your cosplay idol/inspiration?
Bbypandaface and Jessica Nigri are my two biggest inspirations
What cosplay(s) are you working on right now?
Soon I will start working on my custom elune design from world of warcraft, also KDA Kai'sa, and Black Heart and Purple heart from Hyperdimension Neptunia
What is your dream cosplay?
My dream cosplay is a original artwork I found of a demon hunter girl.
With all the negativity in the cosplay community these days, what's a positive message you would like to enforce and encourage others with?
A positive message I want everyone to know is that you can cosplay anything you like no matter your race, weight, religion, or anything. You can do it no matter what anyone says. Never let anyone bring you down because you are perfect and beautiful how you are.
As a lewd content creator, what are some positive aspects of this side of cosplay?
I think lewd cosplay is so empowering. Lewd cosplay makes me feel so good about myself and my body. I really think it is a great confidence booster. I also love how some people are so supportive of you and your lewd cosplays.
Has anything negative come from your experience as a lewd content creator?
Negatively there has been people tell me "well lewd cosplay is not real cosplay", but personally lewd cosplayers put just as much into making, buying, setting up sets, props, makeup, and much more as other cosplayers.
Do you have any horror stories or mistakes you've made that others can learn from?
Never ever let anyone take advantage of your kindness. and never let anyone disrespect you. Respect is earned not given.
Where can we find you on all things social?
I love this girl so much! Make sure you follow her on all things social!
