Marianna De Mort: I will judge a cosplay show at WEGAME 3.0!03 March 2017
The long-awaited continuation of the interview with Marianna De Mort! We found out her opinion regarding the closure of the Igronavty program, her professional plans and upcoming cosplays. From the interview, you will also find out what character Marianna will choose to cosplay at WEGAME 3.0, and her role in our cosplay show!
Interviewer: Lidiya Tsenenko (L.T.)
L. T.: Tell us about your work in Igronavty, and how you reacted to the program closure.
Marianna: Unfortunately, the project is closed. It was important to me and brought a lot of positive experience. I was very pleased that my job was basically to cosplay, meet interesting people and attend shootings of different events.
However, I am no longer upset because of this, as now we are negotiating the launch of a new program about video games on one of the national TV channels.
I I hope we will succeed and attend WEGAME 3.0 with a new shooting team. In any case I will be at the festival. I have already been invited as a judge of a cosplay show again, and I gladly agreed.
L. T.: What projects are you involved in now, and what are your plans for the future?
Marianna: I want to shoot my own movies. As mentioned before, I graduated with a director's degree, and that is also my vocation and hobby that brings me pleasure. I write scenarios for sci-fi movies and search for financing. Unfortunately, no one wants to invest in science fiction in our country. They are willing to invest in soap operas only.
Once I even decided to shoot a short film on my own funds and gathered enthusiasts that worked for the sake of the idea, for free. The shooting brought us lots of fun, but the eventual result could not be considered as something professional.
Apart from my work in a new videogame TV program, I am planning to launch a YouTube channel. I am planning to share short sketches of my movies and life hacks for cosplayers. There are also other ideas that I am still thinking of.
L. T.: What cosplays are you planning to create in the nearest future?
Marianna: I have many ideas. I don’t know what I would like to start with. But there are few characters that are special to me and they are my priority. I am willing to make a cosplay of Diana from League of Legends. I like this character a lot and its image seems incredibly interesting. That is how you actually should cosplay – you have to admire the character.
In the nearest future, I also plan to cosplay Arthas Menethil from the universe of World of Warcraft. By the way, you will see me cosplaying this character at WEGAME 3.0.
Marianna also shared some photos of her Harley Quinn costume creation.
According to her, when she ran out of red acryl fabric paint, she used acryl for ‘windows and doors’ meant for repairs. Remarkably, the result was not any worse.
We also suggest you to watch the video of the Igronavty program where Marianna tells about the creation of an orc costume for the premiere screening of the Warcraft movie.
