Cosplayer of the Month: Drefan Cosplay
Drefan Cosplay: No problem! My name is Drefan, and I’m from Singapore. I’m 30yrs old, and I’ve been a geek/jock almost all my life. Kinda like those hybrid classes in RPGs. Hahaha.
TGL: How long have you been cosplaying and what led you down this path?
DC: I have been cosplaying on and off since 2005. That was about the time I had to quit competitive sports due to serious injuries and was looking for that… spark of life somewhere. And so, i found cosplay!
TGL: What has been your favorite moment either cosplaying or building costumes?
DC: Bringing a character to life and getting all excited with fellow geeks, definitely! It feels like the ultimate
tribute that any fan could give.
TGL: Favorite or most frustrating costume or piece of a costume?
DC: Hmmm I tend to have a soft spot for costumes that have fur, chain, cool hair and armour, fantasy/medieval stuff, and of course, muscles. I get frustrated with myself all the time!
TGL: When you aren’t cosplaying or building costumes, what do you two do in your spare time?
DC: Workout. Clear my enormous backlog of games/anime/manga/movies. Take care of animal companions. And try to learn new languages. Try to.
TGL: What anime, manga, comic book or video game would you say has made the biggest impact on your life and why?
DC: Oh man, there’s no way I could choose. But I’d have to say it would be video games. The journeys are that much more sentimental because they are interactive.
TGL: You are thrown into the fields of justice and everything is on the line as you go top solo against the infamous, Teemo. Which character that you
have cosplayed in the past do you become to fight this terrifying Yordle?
DC: I burst out laughing at this. Kratos? Shao Kahn? Or maybe a Marvel character. Comic characters tend to be OP. But if it’s just LoL, it should be Pantheon i think?
TGL:Do you have any projects in the near future we should be excited to see?
DC: Not sure. Maybe Thrall from World of Warcraft, for a WoW 10 year anniversary event end of Nov? And Spiritguard Udyr as a guest for the League of Legends TLC grand finals end of Dec. I’m aiming to be able to switch between the four forms(rank1) at any time with the use of lights.
TGL: What advice do you have for any aspiring cosplayers out there?
DC: Don’t be shy. Keep your priorities in check. Open-mind. Learning attitude. Respect. Try your best. Have fun!
