Holly Brooke here, interviewing Ani- Mia for Aggressive Comix.  I have been following Mia’s cosplay for some time online, and it has been awesome to see her evolve as a cosplayer!  She is an extremely talented and likable person, who has a costume for a nerd of any fandom! She also happens to be a cosplay favorite amongst the Aggressive Comix admins!

It’s really hard for me to pick just one. I’m a long time reader of comics and am a huge movie buff so I tend to get a lot of my inspiration from there. I have also watched a lot of anime though I tend to be pickier on which ones I favorite. I grew up playing videos games but I feel I haven’t quite had the time to play as much lately (except for my 3DS which I can play while traveling). For me, it really just depends on the character or series in deciding what I want to cosplay. I want to create a costume for a character that I really care about.

I’d have to say that my first cosplay to end up all over the interwebz was the latex Rogue cosplay that I shot with Ron Gejon Photography. I wasn’t expecting the widespread reaction to the cosplay both positive and negative. Since then, my Supergirl got a lot of attention the next year and my most recent has been my Zatanna. It still amazes me when I see one of my costumes getting a lot of attention.

I have two conventions that are my favorites every year and mainly because they have nothing to do with working a booth. Don’t get me wrong, I love having a booth so that I can meet many of the people that follow my cosplay but SDCC and Dragon Con are the two conventions where I can get back to what conventions started as for me, meeting up with my convention friends and getting the scoop on my favorite obsessions.

Thre are a lot. Because I am constantly improving my skills, I am always looking back at my old costumes thinking, “I wish I knew how to do that back then…or why didn’t I think
of that before?” There are a few costumes that I really want to redo just because I love the character so much that I really want to do them justice. But then again, if I were do that for all of my favorites, I would never get new ones done and I have an ever growing list of ‘want to do’ cosplays.

You know, as much as I think a zombie apocalypse would be interesting, I think the most probable would be a robo-apocalypse; which is truly frightening. I’m thinking giant robotic soldiers that are both terrifying and yet adorably cute like Hello Kitty at the same time. How I would save the world….hmmmm? I think at that point, I would just be trying to survive. haha


-DSC_03866.       Do you have any comic book crushes?

My first was Skywise from ElfQuest, which was the first comic I ever read. And then after that it would have to be Gambit. And I’ve always had a girl crush on Rogue.
