Nana Kuronoma

Hello everyone! My Name is Nana Kuronoma and I´m a cosplayer since 2007 who lives in Austria. At the beginning, my cosplays were terrible! I did not know how to style wigs, what a good quality of fabrics is, where I can buy contact lenses, etc… However, with the help of my friends, I grew up! I learned more and more about all the cosplay stuff and now, here I am and I have to admit: My cosplays look much better. :D I do not specialize in a cosplay style; I like to do different types of cosplay. I like the variety! Cosplay is a feeling for me, not just a business. For me it´s important to have fun at the convention, spent time with my awesome followers and answer your questions about Cosplay. 

Some people say I´m a "famous/elite cosplayer", but the truth is, I´m just a normal cosplayer like you, nothing more and nothing less. I don´t put myself on a pedestal because I have some followers >> My followers motivate me, are supporting me and give me the power to work day by day for my new cosplays, so actually I should put all of them on a pedestal! It´s also a very strange feeling when everyone is looking at you, your social media channels and waiting for new photos. There are some days when I ask, "Why do they like my stuff so much? I´m just normal." Then my husband says, "No, you are not! And that’s the reason!"

After all this time, I want to give something back with workshops, tutorials, prints, merchandising, meet and greet, motivational posts on the internet and so much more! I try to show other cosplayers that we are like a little family and not like enemies. So, that´s what I am and what I do!

I really hope to see you at VIECC and take a photo with you in your wonderful cosplay!
