Interview with Cosplayer Bindi Smalls about Free Comic Book Day
May 01, 2014
Cosplayers Celebrate Free Comic Book Day!
FCBD: How long have you been doing cosplay and what got you started?
Bindi Smalls: "I’ve been cosplaying for about a year and a half now, and I got started by becoming obsessed with my Halloween costumes-- and hating that I could only wear them once a year. I created my first serious cosplay in October 2012, which was Mad Moxxi. I worked countless hours on that costume, and felt satisfied with the outcome. That’s when I knew I should be cosplaying!"
FCBD: Who has been your favorite character to cosplay?
BS: “Poison Ivy! I’ve always loved her since I was introduced to her character as a child in the 90’s with Batman: The Animated Series. Always glamorous, a little mysterious, and definitely deadly.”
FCBD: Who has been your most difficult character or costume to create?
BS: “Drow Ranger, for sure. It was a full-armor costume, and the first time I had made armor. It was a learning experience, to say the least!”
FCBD: What are your plans for FCBD?
BS: “For Free Comic Book Day, I’ll be at Twilight Zone Comics in Glen Burnie, Maryland. I’m dressing up as Poision Ivy because she’s my favorite!”
FCBD: Are you going to be getting any free comics? If yes, what comics are you looking forward to getting?
BS: “Definitely! I’m looking forward to getting the Archaia Hardcover Anthology, as Mouse Guard is one of my favorite series.”
FCBD: What is your favorite part about doing cosplay?
BS: “My favorite part about doing cosplay is meeting fellow cosplayers and fans of the series I’m cosplaying from. I could talk for hours about this stuff!”
FCBD: What is your favorite part about FCBD?
BS: “My favorite part about Free Comic Book Day is how great this is for kids. I remember many FCBDs as a kid, and how much it meant to me to get a comic book that I could read over and over again.”
