COSPLAYER INTERVIEW: Nadir Najumal Hussain
Profession by day: Architect
Why do you cosplay?
I cosplay because it’s fun to cosplay and I always want to be the character I love the most, at least for a day. The celebrity feel is awesome with people running behind you to get photos.
What was your latest Cosplay?
How long did it take you to make this cosplay? Were there challenges in the design?
It took me nearly 3 months to make this costume. The whole cosplay was a challenge. I had to make the pepakura files for it all by myself. Also stuck 500 pieces of templates to make it. I’m planning to make few modifications on my hunter. Let’s say some battle damage
Your favourite cosplay you’ve done so far?
Nothing like that. I cosplay for the craze and love that I have for that character. For every cosplay that I have done, I have put a lot of effort and I have received great reviews for it. Also received grand prize for my 4 major cosplays – 4 consecutive wins
Here is a casual cosplay that I did – Finn from Adventure time
What’s your favourite convention?
My favourite conventions- International is C2E2 (Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo) and in India, it is BCC (Bangalore Comic Con)
How long have you been into cosplay?
I have been cosplaying from 2013. Here are some pics of it:
Iron Man – Mark 7
What was your first costume? Advice for anyone just starting out?
My first cosplay was Iron Man – Mark 7
My advice is when you work, try to put full effort on it. Don’t stop at half way of your work, don’t be shy. Ask for help if you are stuck at something. And the most important of them is enjoy the con.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Let’s say a lot of international cosplayers, makeup artists etc. have inspired me to cosplay. Not forgetting my family, friends, and fans who supported me a lot in this past few years
What are you working on next?
Never planned on one yet. Will work on one for next year that I can promise
