[dropcap1]G[/dropcap1]race and Elegance encompass the images taken of Arc De Angel Cosplay. She is truly a gift to the cosplay world. I was recommend to check out her work, and I am so happy I have. Her pictures look like they belong on the walls in a museum. I had the amazing opportunity to interview her via email, so please enjoy!
Career/job: Freelancer that’s still in college
Black Nerd Problems: If you could team up any 7 fictional characters into one super team, who would they be and why?
Arc De Angel: Oh man, I would have to team up Ayane from Dead or Alive, Jiang wei and Xiao Qiao from Dynasty Warriors, Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach, Zack Fair from Final Fantasy and Riku and Terra from Kingdom Hearts. All those characters have a huge place in my heart and I could literally see them kicking some major ass together.
Arc De Angel: I would have to say violet. It takes blue and red to make violet. Blue for me is a calm and cool color, while red is powerful and intense, which all describes me perfectly.
BNP: If you could some up the cosplay community in one word, what would it be and why?
Arc De Angel: The cosplay community is mixed for sure. All experiences that come out of it and the people within are so different. You have your totally awesome, friendly people and everyone just gets along having a good time. But then you got your snooty, foul, rude folk who just wanna bring nothing but negativity and spread all that crap around like fire. It’s all up to the individual on what team they wanna play on in the end.
BNP: What are your goals for the future?
Arc De Angel: My biggest goal I’ve had since I was 10 years old, was to become an illustrator. I’ve always been so intrigued by world of anime, animation and video games. It has always been a big part of my life, and of who I am today. So my goals consist of me becoming a mangaka(comic artist) and/or video game artist. I’m willing to go the distance for it. It means so much to me. Another goal is to make cosplays for every character I love in Dynasty Warriors…that being 80% of the character roster!
