Well not really.
We were interviewed last week for a reportage on Cosplay by the national channel, for their daily feature ‘Kveldsåpent’, who sent their reporter in to talk with us about cosplay as a phenomenon, why we cosplay and what it means to us, as well as to allow her to watch while we got dressed up and styled ourselves.
A lolita, Suzuya Juuzou, Mikey from TMNT and Frozen’s Elsa were soon ready for action in Andrea’s living room, and we had such a good time, talking to the reporter about all kinds of cosplay-related things! It’s a rarity that reporters truly take their time when it comes to this hobby, at least in my experience as a PR-officer, so we were really enjoying the casual interview and conversation we were having, while being taped.
Unfortunately, despite the programme itself spanning over three hours, the feature on cosplay barely filled a few minutes, which yes, was disappointing, considering how many good questions were asked, and how in-depth the interview really went.
Still, it was a really cool experience to have, and it was interesting to get to explore our own views as well in the process, to compare experiences and talk about our own perceptions. So even if only a fraction it actually made it on-air, I’m glad to have been a part of it.
There might also be a feature article on NRK’s website, so crossing our fingers for that.
Meanwhile, the segment can be found Here. It’s supposed to be available for download as a podcast, but that doesn’t seem to work.
They also posted some photos from the interview on their facebook page, including this really snazzy one where I was mid-makeup, because Suzuya’s stitches take hours to apply, so I had to go to Andrea’s in half-costume, and with my hair pinned out of my stitches… Exactly what I wanted on the internet ♡
The things I do for Torucon, you guys!
Anyway, I should be in bed as I’m writing this post, so I probably won’t share it until tomorrow afternoon.
Hn, I have another post waiting, and yet another one after that~ Augh, so busy!
11 days and counting down until my final exam
unless I decide to apply to uni!So basically studying takes up all my life these days; or it would, if there wasn’t so much other stuff going on at the same time. I’ll try to get back on top of things.
