WCS Individual contestant’s 2005: Italy

Monday 9 August 2010

Giorgia was one of the individual contestant’s of WCS 2005. She has won the best individual prize with her Silen Cosplay.

As for the winners of the groups act’s this was Italy too ^___^

It was a good year for Italy


Q: Can you tell us a bit about yourselves?What can I say about myself that I haven’t already? I’m just like any other girl with a special passion and no fear to pursue it.

Q: How old are you?

I’ve been 22 for such a long time I don’t remember


Q: When did you start cosplaying and how long for?

My very first cosplay was when I was 2 years old, but if you mean cosplaying at an adult age, I started cosplaying in March 1997. It was the spring edition of Lucca Comics & Games (it is not held anymore) and wearing my Sailormars costume I was among the few cosplayers attending the convention: we were the very first Italian cosplayers around.

Q: What attracts you to cosplay?

A: I like the chance to be someone else for a whole day. And it might sound crazy, but I do like the shopping phase, when you go hunting for the best fabrics or the perfect wig.

Q: What do you do outside of cosplay?

At the moment I’m studying to become a dubber.
I’ve got my graduation and now I’m doing some on job training.
Meanwhile I work as a show hostess for local events, introducing guests and performers to the audience.

Q: Can you tell us why you decided to enter the WCS preselection competition?

I had been knowing the WCS since it first started and I really wanted to go there. When the chance came, I put every effort in making the costume that would allow me to win the pre-selection. It was a very long and tiring year, but in the end it paid off.

Q: Was it your first time entering the preselection?

Yes, and it was the first time for many others, since it was the very first time pre-selection was held in Italy.

Q: How did it feel to be selected as the Italian representatives?

I was very proud. Getting to represent your Country is not something you can experience everyday.
I have been criticized by someone arguing that I was a little “overacting”, going to Japan with an over ambitious costume, but I could do nothing less: I was representing my Country, I was proud of it and I wanted my Country to be proud of me.
And giving my best was also some sort of respect toward the audience, the judges and even the other contestants.
Now look at what the WCS has become, with all those wonderful costumes.
I can’t help but thinking that we as the Italian Team of the WCS’05 set a standard for costumes and performances that has influenced the very evolution of WCS.

Q: Can you tell us about your experience in Japan?

It was wonderful: a week spent like a rock star. Everyone at the TV-Aichi staff was very kind and helpful and all in all it
is a lifetime experience which I will always remember fondly. Going to WCS is somewhat about competing in a World Cosplaying Contest, but most of all it is about the experience of getting in touch with other people from all around the world with whom you share the same passion.
Everyone who doesn’t realize this doesn’t deserve to go there.

Q: What was it like to meet representatives from other countries?

As I said, it is the real juice of the WCS. That said, we had our issues with some of them, but it worked very well with the others
(expecially the Japanese teams) and all in all I remember the experience positively.

Q: Have you kept in touch with any of the other representatives?

Beside Italian team,I sometimes hear from Spanish and French girls ^_^

Q: What are your cosplay plans for the future?

I have a lot of planned costumes and the list is ever changing. Beside that, I’m going through a complete overhaul of the website which has already spun off a community.

Q: What advice can you give other cosplayers for the Championship?

I think you’ll have to just live it, live the experience, enjoy the cultural exchange.
Don’t forget to give your best on stage, but don’t forget that WCS is about.

Q: Do you have a dream cosplay?

I have a couple, yes, but I’d prefer not to share the dream: it would make me feel like I was giving it away, making it harder to achieve


Q: Do you have one piece of advice that you would give to cosplay newbies?

Never give up. Never let envious people who will say that you look ridiculous or other nasty things to get in your way. Follow your passion and results will come.

Q: Do you have an account with the website Cosplay.com/other social networking sites?

Yes, I have an account on Cosplay.com and not one, but two (I hit the 5000 friends limit) on Facebook.
I also have a DeviantArt account and an AmericanCosplayParadise one.
