As the Editor of SMC, I can say I’ve been a huge supporter and fan of Lady Daniela’s work for a long time now. It was so nice that we had the opportunity to interview her, and share it with our readers.
SMC: Why did you start cosplaying?
Lady Daniela: I really don’t know what made me want to start cosplaying..When I first saw other people in cosplay at my city’s convention I was completely in awe: all of them looked like they were having a lot of fun, and their costumes were so spectacular ad amazing! So, together with my sister and my boyfriend, I decided to buy my first cosplay on the net.
SMC: What was the first convention you cosplay’d?
Lady Daniela: Torino Comics 2012 was my very first convention! Many beautiful memories!
SMC: What has been your most memorable convention moment?
Lady Daniela: I think that my best cosplay moment was in Riminicomix 2013: it was my first summer convention, and I spent all the days with my friends at the beach. Oh, and making sunset photosets on the seashore was really amazing!
SMC: What is your favorite thing about cosplaying at a convention?
Lady Daniela: One of the best things is when someone calls you with the character you’re cosplaying’s name!
SMC: Where can fans expect to see you next? (2016/2017 Schedule?)
Lady Daniela: My next cons will be “Il magico mondo del cosplay (Sigurtà)” in September and then Lucca Comics (the biggest Italian con!) in late October/early November.
SMC: What cosplayers inspire you?
Lady Daniela: There’re a lot of cosplayers that I admire!In particular, those who make themselves beautiful dresses ad armours!
SMC: Which is your favorite cosplay you’ve created?
Lady Daniela: Unfortunately I’m not very good with needle and thread, so I have to commission the “sewing” part of my cosplays to other cosmakers!But this year I tryed to make Aqua’s costume myself, and I’m really proud of it!
SMC: What cosplay are you best known for?
Lady Daniela: Hmm I think Lulu, from Final Fantasy X.
SMC: If money was no object what would be your dream cosplay creation?
Lady Daniela: I really love Aqua’s complete armour,,I hope one day to be able to make it (or to win a lot of money to commission it!)
SMC: Do you have any new cosplays currently in the works?
Lady Daniela: Currently I’m working on two cosplays, The Boss from MGS3 Snake Eater and Irisviel Von Einzbern from Fate/Zero! I hope to be able to finish them in time for Lucca Comics!
SMC: What are your cosplay strengths? (Tailoring, fabric painting, worbla armor, in-character performance etc.)
Lady Daniela: I’m not really an expert, but I think I’m pretty good at creating weapons and accessories!
SMC: What’s one thing you wish you knew about cosplaying before you got started?
Lady Daniela: Hmm, maybe the importance of having a great wig! My first one for Misa Amane (my first cosplay) was a carnival-like one, white blonde and extremely shiny…I can’t even look at it now!
SMC: Any advice for people interested in cosplaying for the first time?
Lady Daniela: To enjoy themselves with their friends, that’s the only thing that makes cosplay a really wonderful hobby!
SMC: What do you do in the real world for a job?
Lady Daniela: I’m a Lab Technician, and I work in one of my city’s hospitals!
SMC: What is something your fans may not know about you? Other hobbies?
