Tsunade Cosplay Interview
Tsunade Cosplay Interview
Kelly: It doesn’t matter to me. I answer to either.
Kelly: I don’t think it’s weird at all. ^^ Actually I’m quite flattered.
Kelly: WHAT?! I am? Seriously?? *goes off to check* No way. I’m totally blown away. I had no idea I was *that* popular.
Kelly: Tsunade is one of the very few female anime characters that I actually like. The inspiration as to why I cosplay as her was a girl I met at JaFax 2004 who had cosplayed as Tsunade. She’s the person to thank for the idea.
Kelly: EASY!! Heero Yuy from Gundam Wing.
Jeremiah: When you say Tsunade from Naruto is your favorite, it sounds kinda like you’re saying Heero Yuy from Gundam Wing… My ears must be bad today…wierd. We understand you will be attending Otakon this year, can you tell us a little bit about your plans?
Kelly: Well I will be working at a dealer’s booth for most of the weekend. ^^ Plus I will be attending the Naruto photoshoots, dance, and ParaPara panels.
Kelly: Meeting my East Coast friends for the first time! Plus meeting lots of awesome new people! 😄
Jeremiah: I guess if some of our readers are going you will meet awesome people… we’ve actually got the word “awesome” trademarked now. When you do these conventions I’m assuming you draw a lot of attention. What kind of reaction do you get? Any uncomfortable stares? Or worse?
Kelly: Most people are polite and ask for pictures. I get a couple of rude questions asking to feel me up; which I say no to. I know I get stared at ALL the time. I think it’s quite funny. If I catch someone I will call out “Take a picture, it lasts longer.” I do have one story… I was at JaFax 2005 in Tsunadeand some guy comes up to me and asks if he can take a picture with me. Now mind you I haveno problem with people asking for a “Konohamaru Picture.” As long as they ask first and don’t get all touchy feely. Well this guy didn’t ask and just stuck, not lay but STUCK, his face into my chest! The next year he has the gall to come up to me and ask if I remembered him! To which I respond for him to stay the hell away from me and to never talk to me again.
Kelly: Well I have a few guy friends that I can count on for it not to even happen. Plus there’s con security for incidents like this.
Kelly: I will wear her on Sunday. SnJ Jiraiya will be worn on Friday and Konan on Saturday.
Kelly: Annoyed. It’s none of their business.
Kelly: “Are your boobs real?” Seriously. I post EVERYWHERE that they are and people who have met me post the same thing.
Kelly: Uhmmmmm… I don’t know anymore. My current major is math. Though I’m my college’s anime club president.
Kelly: I think Gai-sensei is pretty awesome as a side character. He provides some funny as hell comedic relief. ^^ Plus he is an inspiration to keep doing your best and to be better than the day before!
Kelly: None of the above! XP Kiba is the coolest. 😄
You recently checked out our site. We know how awesome we are but how awesome do you know we are?
Kelly: Very awesome? Lol.
Kelly: Of course! I watch and read both the Japanese and American. Well the American dub I kinda skim over the episodes just to see where they are at each week. Bad fillers are a “Do Not Want.”
Is Jiraiya dead for good?
Kelly: Yeah. *tears* He was awesome.
Who do you think is Pain’s new body?
Kelly: I haven’t really thought about it. But I’ve heard the Rin and the Kushinatheories. They both seem plausible.
Kelly: Gundam Wing. *sighs happily*
Note to self: Edit interview so that she answers Naruto…
So… what are the odds that we can get a pic of you cosplaying with a sign that says: I *heart* iareawesomeness?
Kelly: Which costume would you like me to pose with it?
