Interview with Sophie as: Vanta
Assassins Creed Franchise
What interests you about the Assassins Creed franchise?
I discover AC with the second game. In fact as an art historian I studied Italian renaissance and the game was perfect for relaxation after the revisions!
Which Assassins Creed characters do you cosplay?
Caterina Sforza from ACII
Mirella Djuric/ the Trickster from ACR
Why do/did you cosplay them/him/her?
Caterina Sforza: I’m so in love with the character. She was a very strong woman in a men’s world.
The Trickster: I fall in love with the costume design. I practice oriental dance so with this cosplay I can cosplay and dance!
What do you think of Assassins Creed Syndicate (game and characters)?
I don’t know yet what to think. I’m a little old school, I love the “old” assassin’s creed with Altaïr and Ezio, but it can be interesting to meet new Assassins and new historic periods.
How long have you been a cosplayer?
Is cosplaying your hobby or profession?
Only a hobby (for now…)
How long does it take you to make your costume?
Really, it’s depend of the costume. Some are made in one week, some in 6 months. Usually 2-3 months.
Do you usually achieve the desired outcome for your costume on the first try?
Do you visit conventions?
Which conventions do you visit?
A lot of french conventions (essentially parisians cons) : Japan Expo, Epitanime, Paris Manga, Geekopolis…..
What are you working on right now?
For now I’m working on the Rebel from ACIV, Lady Sif from Thor (the second movie armour), a character from the roleplaying game Pathfinder, and I have always an Avatar cosplay in progress in the craftroom ! And maybe one day, Elise de la Serre (she is french, has red hair, what else :P?)
Do you cosplay for other things as well?
I’m crazy about the cartoon avatar (four cosplays for now and five projects)
I also love the comics Thor and I have some projects.
