Possessing an admirable physique, Umeko left many impressions on manga-anime fans when transforming into fiery female characters. Let’s interview Umeko with Gamek to hear her share more about her hobbies and joys around cosplay!
Hi Ai Nhu, can you introduce yourself?
Briefly about me, I was born in 2001 and currently living in Ho Chi Minh City.
It is known that As one of the coser is loved by many people. I don’t know, how do you feel when you receive this love from fans?
Actually, I’m just an ordinary coser, but I’m lucky to be loved a little by many friends, honestly I didn’t even dare to think about this in the past, but I received so much support, I feel very happy. I am happy and grateful to everyone for giving me the motivation to work hard in my current job.
So, when did Nhu start cosplaying?
I didn’t participate in cosplay for too long, around 2016 I was just entering high school and later followed ero cosplay after taking the entrance exam.
What is the reason you chose this job?
At first, I didn’t think I would be able to do a job related to my passion like now, when I first started I simply saved my pocket money to buy clothes for my favorite characters, after After graduating, I learned a lot of different things like makeup, photo editing, photography, and intended to be a photographer as a left-hand day to cover life and college tuition, then I thought it must be a fate I asked. If you teach photography, do you want to invade this field because I like cosplay, at first I just wanted to have fun and have money, it was considered an allowance and a loss, but then it was quite stable so I started doing it. take this job seriously.
What are the difficulties you face? And how did you fix it?
The difficulty at first was that I was still a student, so I couldn’t have as many characters as now, it can be said that my job is quite convenient because there is no big difficulty other than financial difficulty.
Choose COS sexy characters, these are the characters and styles that Nhu loves right?
The characters I cos are all the characters that I love with all my heart, because I am also quite strict in this regard, the characters I do not like or like but have a shape that is not suitable for me, I will definitely no cos.
These characters are quite “sensitive” and may cause you trouble and trouble. So, in fact, have you encountered any awkward cases?
Before, when I decided to follow ero cosplay, I also thought that I would have to encounter harassing elements.
How do you handle those situations?
Usually I’ll ignore them or worse, block them, I’m also quite lucky that I haven’t been bothered until real life.
What motivates you to continue this work?
Currently, my biggest motivation is to pay for my own college tuition and collect items and models of anime and manga that I am “crazy”.
Thank you UmekoJ for sharing more about me and my passion. Wish UmekoJ’s learning and cosplaying career more and more success.
