Cupcake Cosplay is the combined talents of Breathlessaire and Starlighthoney. They met each other back in the beginning to 2007 and have been the best of friends ever since.|
Breathlessaire’s love for Japanese animation began at an early age; running home from school to watch her favorite shows Sailor Moon and Ronin Warriors. It is important to notate that although her love began at an early age, her obsession, however, did not began until 2006. That was the year Breathlessaire cosplayed as “Big Foreheaded Haruno Sakura.”
It is to be said that the world of Cosplay has not only shaped her life in dramatic ways, but it has also provided her with an opportunity to become an excellent seamstress, a great performer, and an amazing person. When Breathlessaire competes, she often walks away with craftmanship awards, providing her with sufficient morale boosts which help her continue to strive for success and perfection. Her much desired accomplishments have come to fill her with great pride for the art that is cosplay and gain immense respect for her fellow cosplayers.
Starlighthoney’s love for Japanese animation began as early as she was able to start performing at a very young age. Most of her youth was dedicated to enhancing her performing skills which consisted of choir concerts at all levels as well as theater plays. Starlighthoney never failed to see her intent and desire to wear what she considered to be the cutest of outfits which were compiled of interesting designs she saw in shows. It was around this time in her life that she opened up her eyes to the hybrid world ofcosplay; which consisted of a delicate combination of design, art and performance.
In 2006 she begin cosplaying by participating in a local anime festival. Although without much experience, she created her first outfit that she would use as her expose to the world of Cosplay. It was at this point that she began enhancing her designs: she used small costumes as a starting point; her performances became more eloquent and better prepared. Each and every costume and performance was a fruitful result of dedication, passion, and true labor of which its epicenter was the love of the character she is cosplaying. Over the years, Starlighthoney has done a remarkable job at perfecting an art, one which she continues to improve upon with each Cosplay design and performance.
