SMC Spotlight: Michele Ilona featuring Marvel’s Black Cat

Cosplayer Michele Ilona started cosplaying in 2010, and after a short break returned to cosplay in 2013. Cosplay has easily become one of the biggest parts in her life.

Michele attends Conventions in Germany and Europe and already has been invited as Special Guest to several Events. Her Cosplays come from movies, anime, games, & TV-shows.,  Michele loves to create different types of costumes and with that use the challenges they present to help her learn. Michele has learned a lot of new techniques over the years and with that shared them in her video tutorials (See Youtube). Currently she is working on some Cosplay Books where she will give detailed instructions on such topics as Prop making, working with leather and  many more.

It’s amazing to bring the character to life and capture it in a picture with a fitting location and the right atmosphere. For me a Cosplay is finished when I got the perfect picture of it.”  — Michele Ilona
One of her favorite parts of Cosplaying is to do photo shoots. Check out Michele as Marvel’s Black Cat below, which many of you may know is an SMC favorite!
