SMC: What was the first convention you cosplayed & What did you wear?
Hekady:¬†The first convention i have ever been was the ‚ÄúExpocomic Madrid 2008‚ÄĚ.¬†I went there with my brother cosplayed as Death Note’s Misa with clothes
that i already had at home.¬†I was very embarrassed because i didn’t know anyone there and almost didn’t¬†took off my coat for the pictures LOL¬†The next one was ‚ÄúExpomanga Madrid 2009‚ÄĚ, this time i went with some¬†friends and cosplayed as Soul Eater’s Maka, cosplay that a friend borrowed¬†me.¬†This time was so much fun.

SMC: What has been your most memorable convention moment (i.e. funniest moment) ?
Hekady:¬†In 2010 i went to the Madrid Japan Weekend, cosplayed as Air Gear’s Simca.¬†A crowd of people came to say hello and take pictures with me when¬†suddenly a guy ran after me, he took a candy, took it of the package while¬†he was looking at me in a very weird way, and then….he rubbed the candy¬†on my face , and then started running away while shouting ‚Äúnow my candy¬†tastes like you!!!‚Ä̬†I was freaking out! While the other people was laughing so bad!

SMC: What is the favorite thing about cosplaying at a convention?Hekady: The pictures of course! The best think of a convention is arrive with your cosplay and feel like the people likes it and ask you to take pictures with them. Is very pleasant and funny. I love that the people gives credit to my work and enjoy my cosplays.
