I’ve been modeling since November of 2011 in the beautiful city of Vancouver, BC. I’m most inspired by vintage pin-ups, old Hollywood stars, Harajuku girls, Tim Burton films, and the Victorian era.”
Jack Nickelz: So tell us what first got you started in Cosplay?
Miss Morgane: I guess it would be my modeling that got me started in Cosplaying. I’ve always loved anime and comics, so what better way to display my love, then with the ability to turn your favorite characters into real life.
Jack Nickelz: What was your first Cosplay outfit?
Miss Morgane: For Halloween as a child I went as Poison Ivy, but my first adult Cosplay would have been Road Kamelot from D.Grayman
Jack Nickelz: How was it going to a convention in full gear?
Miss Morgane: It’s always a bit funny taking transit to the convention in full gear. You get a lot of weird looks, but honestly I’m used to it now because of my modeling. It’s fun when you see fellow Cosplayers on their way to the same convention.
Jack Nickelz: What has been some of your fav. Cosplays to do?
Miss Morgane: I would say my Leeloo Dallas has been my favorite this far. Making the silicone suspenders was such a challenge, but they turned out really well, especially for my first try.
Jack Nickelz: Do you have a Cosplay that you are becoming known for?
Miss Morgane: Not that I know.
Jack Nickelz: How do you pick which Cosplay to do?
Miss Morgane: I usually just go with characters that I love. I like to find artists renditions of them though so that it’s a more unique take on that character.
Jack Nickelz: How long does it normally take you to do a Cosplay?
Miss Morgane: It really depends on what that character’s outfit is and how much free time I have. The steampunk Ariel took me about 2 days for the bra and the skirt that I had custom made took about a week of actual sewing.
Jack Nickelz: What’s the hardest Cosplay that you have had to do?
Miss Morgane: The Leeloo Dallas Cosplay for sure. I couldn’t find an orange wig, so I hand dyed and dreaded the wig, my partner and I made silicone suspenders for the first time using foam as our mold and a T-shirt for the pattern
Jack Nickelz: Who are some of the Cosplayers that you admire?
Miss Morgane: Amber Arden does an amazing job, as well as Harley’s Joker.
Jack Nickelz: Are there any Cosplays that you had to adjust because they were too revealing?
Miss Morgane: I adjusted my Ariel Cosplay, but only because of weather. In Arizona I wanted it to be more breathable, so for Dragon Con I added a corset to give it a more steampunk style.
Jack Nickelz: Why do you think that Cosplay is becoming more main stream?
Miss Morgane: Right now comic book movies and TV shows are huge right now and being accepted by everyone. The more people that see and love these characters, the more people will want to create them themselves.
Jack Nickelz: What do family and friends think about your Cosplaying?
Miss Morgane: A lot of my friends are Cosplayers so they’re very supportive and my mom is supportive of anything I do. I’m very lucky. smile emoticon
Jack Nickelz: What are your thoughts on people saying Cosplay is becoming too corporate? I can’t say that I agree or that I’ve seen corporations being overly present in Cosplay.
Jack Nickelz: What future Cosplays can we expect to see from you this year?
Miss Morgane: I’m planning on making artist Babs Tarr version of Harley Quinn, as well as playing around with worbla for the first time. I’d like to finish my Kiki’s delivery service and do a Mary Jane shoot.
Jack Nickelz: Thank you for taking time out to do this. Is there anything else you would like to say to the fans?
Miss Morgane: Thanks for being fans!! You guys are amazing! Xoxo
