Read the hero profile below!
- Name/Nickname: Marianna de Mort.
- Superpower: strikes on the spot with weapons made from scrap materials.
- Weakness: information classified.
- Favorite color: black.
- Favorite character: Harley Quinn.
- First experience of cosplay.
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, in her early childhood, she made a snowflake outfit from available materials to perform at a New Year's party in kindergarten. Claims that many of us were cosplayers this way, without knowing it.
- The path to cosplay.
Made the costumes of the characters before it became mainstream, without even knowing that it was called cosplay.
She grew up in a family of artists. Since childhood, she drew, regularly participated in art and hand-made contests, where she won prizes.
Later at the university, she studied to be a film and TV director, created props and images for the heroes of her short films on the theme of mysticism and fantasy, which she filmed as term papers. She was more seriously involved in cosplay in 2007, when she was interested in the gothic subculture (she was a goth).
Created costumes and props for mystical characters from horror films, post-apocalyptic original costumes for photo shoots, covers of gothic and subculture magazines, mixtapes of musical bands, as well as festival posters.
- Favorite cosplay memory.
It involves a time when she worked on Q-TV channel as a director and host of the Igronauts TV show. Once, while filming a pre-premiere screening of Suicide Squad as a Harley Quinn character, interviewed visitors. Pranked them, saying that the room was rigged with explosives. The organizers and the guards were very frightened.
- The most difficult costume.
Costume of the Night King from the Game of Thrones. The armor for him was made of plastic document folders. The difficulty turned out to be that, by cutting out small rectangles, Marianne cut the table in a rented apartment. So she had to urgently learn the peculiarities of the restoration of furniture surfaces in order to hide the "evidence" before the owners found out.
- What she will focusing on be while assessing the participants of the cosplay show as a judge.
The quality of the costume and acting. Whether participant tries to convey the character of the hero, gestures, movements, facial expressions and habits to the maximum.
- Expectations from WEGAME 6.0 festival.
She expects from the participants (and from herself) that over the long period of quarantine, sitting at home, they have not become lazy, but have gained inspiration for creativity.
