KAC Showcase : April - It's COSPLAY time!

KAC shall be showcasing its members on this blog every month from now on. This is part of our attempt to familiarise ourselves with some of the outstanding talent that KAC has, and give our awesome members some well deserved attention for making this place so fun and colourful. ^_^

For the month of April, we have chosen to showcase one of our newer members, Rhea Chowdhury.


Rhea currently works as an editor in Kolkata.
She is being featured here for the stunning cosplay that she did at the Cool Japan Festival 2012 held in Mumbai, where she dressed up as an ANBU (from the anime/manga Naruto).


A small interview of Rhea-san :

How did you make this costume?
- "Once I heard about the Cool Japan Fair, I absolutely HAD to go attend it. Everyone was really pumped up to cosplay. Hence, I had to cosplay too. But I wanted it to be an accurate one, even if it were to be simple. Shaival gave me the idea about being an ANBU and I loved the idea. Since, ANBU's are very powerful, yet they are pretty useless and hence underrated! X_X I thought it would be simple but I was wrong since making any costume perfect is a hard job, no matter how simple it is. ANBU had a lot of small props to take care of but since I would be a random ANBU, I could modify and customize some of the accessories. For the ninja shoes I preferred using boots. Got that from Esplanade. Black jeans from there too. And thankfully had a black tee to go under the white ANBU vest (which was full sleeve and I just cut off the sleeves and used it as the extension for the long fingerless gloves) . The weapons were from the NINJA kit that we already had. Except the FUMA SHURIKEN and the arm guards. Fuma shuriken was prepared using the cardboard. It was made by Shaival kun. He used black/silver fabric/poster colors. He worked VERY hard behind it and it turned out to be a kickass weapon! The arm guards were made from cardboard as well. White fabric paint on it. The masks were made by me with my mother's help We got two animal party masks (tiger) used spray white spray paint (two thick coats) Let them dry for about one whole day and then use a red marker to make the design on the mask. I changed the design a bit since the mask was not EXACTLY like the ANBU mask but it worked fine Got the fingerless gloves from a random store and used the torn sleeve for myself and for Shaival used black socks with the tip cut off. Now comes the VEST. I looked for a thick material at Gariahat and finally found it. Got hold of my talior and made him see anime ANBU images explaining how it is to be done. And he did a GREAT job didn't he? :P  So that's how we became ANBUs for one marvellous and memorable day." 


Is there any upcoming event, where you'll be cosplaying again? 
- “Currently, I am not working on any other cosplay. But I will cosplay again if there is another event like Cool Japan. If i have the time I would also cosplay for KAC with the other amazing members! ^_^”  


How has your experience with KAC been so far? 

- “Experience with KAC is AWESOME. Every member is warm and welcoming. They are also very encouraging. My cosplay was just for fun, but KAC took it to another level. I'll always be indebted to them for that. Arigatou KAC *bows*.

Thank you.
I love u guys.”
