Our cosplay crush this week is Kirtash Cross Play from Asturias, Spain! He’s a gay photographer, loves to read and collects dolls. He’s been cosplaying since he was only 15 years old. When he’s not cosplaying you might catch him playing Overwatch, League of Legends, Zelda, or Pokemon.
He’s cosplayed as Black Cat, Ciel Phatomive, Alibaba from Magi, Zero from Vampire Knight, Nurse Joy from Pokemon, Sonic from One Punch Man, Megara from Disney’s Hercules, and Kuroko of Kuroko no Basket.
What got you into cosplay in the first place?
My first experience in cosplay was making Ciel cosplay, and my grandmother helps me so much because I knew nothing about sewing. What I like cosplay is sharing with people whenever you stop to ask for a photo or to tell you how well you did it is an incredible satisfaction.
How do you define cosplay?
I define cosplay as do what makes you happy without worrying about what others think that in life everything you do will be criticized. Cosplay for me means a very fun way to meet new people with my same interests. Cosplay served me in my life to learn to do things they would never have imagined such as sewing.
What are your views of being body positive when doing cosplay?
For my body in cosplay is not important everyone can make it thin, fat, tall or short my opinion be is that a lot of people reason to lose weight for me, however, motivated me to accept me as I am and who is not look like it
What’s your most memorable experience while cosplaying?
For me, the moment I will never forget is when I went up to compete with my friends, and I am truly a very shy person from that moment I knew that my life would not be in cosplay contests.
What’s an interesting fact about yourself outside of cosplay?
Outside of cosplay, I’m an average guy addicted to Instagram(davidst12), and other social networks did not do anything special.
What upcoming events will we see you cosplay at again?
I’m trying to go to Japan Weekend Barcelona if I can´t go you can see me at the Cometcon of Asturias.
If somebody told you they hated your cosplay, what would you do?
Everyone has an opinion I respect who do not like other people tell you, love, while critics are not so rude are welcome and encourage me a lot to improve
