Real-Life Cosplay Story of Andrea

I am Andrea, a cosplayer for over 13 years now. I am also known as Lostaliceph in the cosplay community and here to share my story and some of my work.

It all started with a wig.
Then later a costume and other materials which my very supportive parents bought for me, knowing that cosplaying is a very expensive hobby and making me understand I need to save my own money to keep this sustainable. I also need to sell them after.

I discovered cosplay in high school when I saw a photo of a lady in social media dressed up as Kagome from Inuyasha. I quickly learned dressing up as a character was called ‘cosplay’ and that very pretty lady was ‘Alodia’, the cosplay queen herself. After that, I said to myself I’ll make my own history!

I really enjoy what I do, even if sometimes there are people who can’t understand why. They say it’s a waste of money and time not realizing that with cosplaying I gained self confidence since I’m naturally shy, plus it opened opportunities for me to meet people with same interests.

Today I am the VP of Eureka cosplay club, the CA of Miccostumes, cosplayed countless characters and sometimes a resource person for newbie as well as seasoned cosplayers. My favorite anime are Card Captor Sakura and Saiyuki Reload. My favorite cosplay? Lisa Minci from Genshin Impact.

My advice? This hobby isn’t cheap, get your priorities straight. Cosplay for fun, for yourself and not to please other people.

Andrea. Teacher. Cosplayer. Leader. Entrepreneur.

Cosplay, costumes, community and everything else in between. We are the marketplace of choice for pre-loved costumes, from the straightforward all the way to the showstopper. At CosComme, we believe cosplay is not just anime. It is that, and so much more. A cosplayer’s choice is limited only by one’s imagination. We respect the creativity, talent, and skill of every cosplayer, from the choice of clothing material, prop, headgear, up to being the character one chooses to be when the right time comes. We believe that cosplay can be part of everyday life. A renaissance headband here, a superhero mug during coffee breaks there, a manga-inspired wig to go along with your work outfit, scarves, caps, neckties and many more. The possibilities are endless. One can come home and admire anime-influenced artwork on the walls as part of home décor. Anyone can cosplay.
