* Nationality: French

* Occupation: Graphic designer/illustrator for games, posters, comics etc...

* Age: Ouch, is it something I really have to answer? People know I'm not that and young and fresh, however let's say I'm in my late 20s.

* Birthday: April 6, aries, sign of fire^^

* Height: I'm a midget, 153 cm, the perfect size to cosplay fairies like think!^^

* Band / artist favorite music: errrhhhh....dunno... original soundtracks frome movies essentially oh and I like Mickael Bubble ( don't even know the correct spelling)

*Favorite book: asking for favorites are very hard questions you know?, can't reply to that one, I read to much book in my life^^,,,,, I reallly don't know

* Food and drink:.....Let's enumerate the food I don't like instead, it'll be easier: green peas, fennel, raw fish and alcohol. I like almost everything else at the same level.(maybe fish a bit less)

* Hobby: Dawing and cosplaying^^ what a suprise!
* Favorite anime series: I'm stuck with the oldies: sailor moon and DBZ, I 'm a big fan of berserk too.

* Favorite Mangas: Berserk

* There are some anime characters with which you feel identified?
Smiling, funny and energetic characters and cute too.

* How many costumes did you do and what were they?
I can't make a list of my costumes and what year I wore them, it would be too long and I have work to do^^. I guess I did by 35-36 costumes so far. Not that much compared to some crazy cosplayers^^

* What is your favorite?
Rikku from KH2, finn fish from KKJ, alice and tinkerbell

* How and how long you're in the world of cosplay?
I started in January 2002

* what is your inspiration to do cosplay ?
I just feel like making a costume when I see a characer I like.

* What was your first cosplay and why?
Wooouch. Kid from Chrono cross. Because she was a bit like me, but the costume was awfull. I could redo her if i wanted, she is a bit rikku like and she is the kind of character I fit the best, but I gained to much weight lately, I don't wanna show my stomach anymore^^

* Why do you do cosplay?
Fun, personnal accomplishement when you finish something you struggle on ( I'm not very good at sewing....sadly) and of course cosplay makes you feel better when people like you. 10 years ago, I was a bit of a tomboy, nobody liked me, , I didn't like me neither. By the time I started cosplay , things got reversed. Now I'm a lot more confident in myself and looking like a proper girl.

*When you choose a character to the project, do it for the costume or the character that identifies you?
Most of the time it is for a character I like and which has a personnality that looks like me. Im' very bad at sewing, so I can't pick costume just for the costume, because I know I won't be able to make it, I prefere to be very motivated on a character I like to make the costume better.

*Do You think it's necessary to act like the character when you have the costume or just in the presentation?
Yes it is, You have to be like an actor in theater, act like the character, pose like the character but just for the time you wear the costume ( it includes wearing costumes and skits on stages), but after that, don't forget your are you first.^^

* You ever participated in cosplay contests?
Sometimes, I'm too stressed to participate each time there is a contest, and my costumes are not complicated enough to compete with the elite of french cosplay, so I prefere to wear my costumes just for pictures.

* Did you win a prize?
I remember getting a prize with my first rikku, ooowww, it was like... in 2003. and I got picked to participate to the first and third world cosplay summit. I think that's it.

* Do you make your costumes or need help?
Most of the time, I make all my costumes myself. However I bought my alice costume, I didn't have time to make it by the time I ordered it and I wanted to prove myself I could look like her ( not proove myself if I was able to make the dress, that is why) I asked a bit of help when I started, my roommate helped me with instructions on patterns.

* Where you buy your wigs and other accessories?
Mostly on ebay for the wigs and shoes, I can search during months before buying THE wig I want, same for shoes. Often,I make my acessories ( like jewelry)
* With what materials you like working for the cosplay?
no preference

* What is your favorite fabric?
Something my sewing machine can sew without making a carnage.

* What was your last costume?
the past week end, I wore my new version of my tinkerbell costume ( the autumn one from tinkebell and the lost treasure) and I did android 18 from DBZ as well.

* Have you ever made a group, what was your experience?
I don't like groupes with a bunch of people, there is always troubles, so now I cosplay only with 1 to 4 friends I really like and that I know I can count on. that's it

* What is your definition of' ''cosplayer’’?
Hu....wearing a costume of a character you like or a costume you like? if you make it yourself or buy is not a problem, I think people can do whatever they want as long they have fun and enjoy it. the only thing, I guess is bad, is when someone proclaim that he did the costume althought it is not true. What is the point of acting like that?

* What is your next project?
I'm working on a power girl costume and sailor iron mouse costume, I'm also planning to make a giselle cosplay ( from enchanted) since several people told me I looked like her, I want to prove it is not the case, I don't look like her at all^^

* What advice would you give the new cosplayers?
Be perfectionnist.

* What would do you say to your fans around the world?
Ewww..... dunno, that's cool? I didn't even know I had fan's all around the world.^^

¿Cuál es tu hobby? Internet, cosplays y comer Donettes xD

¿Cuál es tu asignatura-materia favorita? Bueno ahora no estudio, pero antiguamente cuando hice BTX Artístico era Dibujo Técnico .

¿Cuál es tu personaje favorito de manga-anime? ¡¡¡Hinata Hyûga!!! de ahí mi nombre.

¿Cómo te metiste en el mundo del Cosplay? Fue por una amiga. Hace años se acercaba el Salón del Manga de Barcelona y bueno, yo nunca iba con cosplay... pero una amiga me dijo que podía intentar hacer el cosplay de ION Tsuburagi (ION)... al principio no me interesó, pero al hacer mi primer cosplay e ir de un personaje que adoro... ¡me encantó! y entonces desde ahí que es uno de mis hobbys principales.

Háblanos sobre tu primer cosplay: Fu muy repentino y obvio yo no tenía ni idea de coser. Lo hize en 2 semanas con ayuda de una amiga. Me faltó el detalle de la peluca, que por esa época yo estudiaba y no podía comprarlas, pero tampoco me importó porque para mi era genial ir de ION .La verdad esque lo miro ahora.. .y es horrible jaja.

¿Cuál es tu cosplay favorito? Yoko de Gurren Lagan... ¡lo adoro! desde que lo hice hace 3 años ¡me encanta ponermelo!

¿Cuántos cosplays has hecho? 23

¿Tienes alguna tienda favorita para comprar telas? Ribes & Casals en Barcelona, pero cuando no puedo a 2 calles de mi casa hay una bastante decente.
¿Cuál es tu tela favorita? Polipiel y Poliéster.

¿Cómo te sientes al ver tu cosplay terminado... ? ¡Con un alivio enorme y muy feliz!

¿Tus padres te apoyan con la idea del cosplay? La verdad a ellos les da igual, no les interesa mucho... eso sí, ellos me regalaron las 2 máquinas de coser.

¿Cuál ha sido tu mejor experiencia desfilando un cosplay? Cuando fuí de Sasuke Uchiha a un evento, yo no me apunté al concurso de cosplays... pero una de las propias chicas del jurado me pidió que lo hiciera porque ¡le había encantado! La verdad no me lo esperaba y bueno me sentí muy bien. Lamentablemente tube que irme... y no participé .

¿En qué te basas a la hora de escoger un personaje para hacer cosplay? En que sea un personaje parecido a mí en carácter y que el traje que lleve, obviamente me pueda quedar bien. Normalmente son personajes bastante fríos, tsundere o con vestimenta sexy.

Define qué es ser un/a "cosplayer" para ti: Hacer con tus propias manos el sueño de ser por un día uno de tus personajes favoritos. Yo sinceramente, creo que comprarlo o mandarlo hacer... no es ser cosplayer, la satisfacción de hacerlo tu y ver que cada día vas mejorando, es genial .

¿Has hecho algún cosplay en grupo? ¿De qué hicieron? Sí, de Tenjo Tenge. Yo hice de Maya Natsume y mi amiga de Aya Natsume.

¿Has estado en algún evento de concurso cosplay? Pues la verdad es que no .

¿Tienes algún premio ganado por hacer cosplay? No, nunca me he presentado... me da verguenza.

¿Haces cosplay por diversión, participar en eventos … ? Por diversión, me encanta ir con ellos, si pudiera lo haría cada día al salir a la calle, jaja.

¿Cuál es tu próximo proyecto? Meiko del software Vocaloid.

Según su criterio… ¿cuál es el aspecto más difícil al realizar un cosplay? Cada uno tiene algo que seguramente costará más de hacer... pero en mi caso lo que peor se me da son las americanas de los uniformes... buff.

¿Dónde sueles trabajar/hacer tus trajes: habitación, desván, taller...?
En mi habitación, tengo una mesa al lado de la cama donde trabajo .

¿Hay algo que quieras agregar? Mmm, bueno decir que gracias por dejarme aparecer en el blog, que es simplemente genial! (y no es peloteo que conste xD). Gomen por llevar lentes en algunas fotos... tengo bastante dioptría y me es díficil ver sin ellas. Dos de las fotos no son sesiones... hace poco que una amiga me a empezado a ayudar con ellas -_- . Y que aquellos que están empezando en el cosplay, ¡ánimos! y las críticas, siempre que sean constructivas van bien... a mi me queda mucho todavía por aprender... pero es algo genial. ¡Gracias!
