Cosplayer Of The Week: The Dapper Muffin
Morning, folks! Normally when I do Cosplayer of the Week, I hunt for cosplayers I find interesting and beg them for interviews. Imagine my surprise when a cosplayer actually came to me! This is The Dapper Muffin and she requested an interview and after check out all of her content, I was genuinely surprised I had never heard about her prior to this! She is an adorable woman who nails Madoka and so many other incredible characters! I highly recommend checking her out!
But first, let’s get to the interview!
The Geek Lyfe: Would you be alright introducing yourself?
Blaze Chan: My name is Blaze, also known as Blazey Chan. I am 18 from the Columbia area!
TGL: How long have you been into cosplay and what led you down this path?
BC: I’ve been in cosplay for two years. I got into it from an ex, but fell in love with it and couldn’t give it up.
TGL: What has been your favorite moment?
BC: When someone came up to me at a con and actually knew who I was. They were saying they were a fan and loved my work.
TGL: What was the worst day for you in your cosplay career, what happened, and how did you deal with it.
BC: After a day at an out of state con, I wasn’t feeling well. So when I came back to the room, I nearly passed out. I was apparently having problems with head exhaustion. Thankfully I had a good friend to help me out.
TGL: When you aren’t doing this, what do you do in your spare time?
BC: In my spare time I like to draw, watch anime, or play video games. My favorite console is my Nintendo 3DS!
TGL: What geek medium(Video Games, Comic Books, Novels, Movies, etc.) made the biggest impact on your life and why?
BC: Probably video games. When I was growing up my brothers raised me. Since they played games like WoW and Tribes: Ascend, I watched them when I was a kid.
TGL: You can bring one fictional character from any universe to our world and they are your best friend for life. Which character is this and why?
BC: I would pick Hinata Shoyo from Haikyuu. He always made me giggle and makes me feel normal. He acts a lot as I do and his determination drives me to be the best I can be.
TGL: Do you have any projects in the near future we should be excited to see?
BC: I am going to be working on a Punk Madoka Kaname as well as D.va. from Overwatch.
TGL: What advice do you have for any aspiring cosplayers out there?
BC: Don’t let the community define you! You can do whatever you want and rock it. Want to be a black Princess Peach? Go for it. Want to be a skinny Rose Quartz? You do it! Wanna dress as the opposite sex? You can! Don’t let the negativity kill you. Do whatever makes you happy. In the end, it’s your happiness with it that matters.
TGL: What costume would you say is your favorite so far?
BC: Probably Lucy Heartfilia or Godoka. With Lucy I can embrace my body more. Godoka touches the part of me that wants to be helpful. I want to be someone who can help end suffering, especially in the cosplay community.
I want to give a huge thank you to Blaze Chan for reaching out to us! It was a great find and I seriously enjoy her work! 😀 Be sure to follow her on Facebook at The Dapper Muffin! She also wanted to give a shout out to her photographer: Fox Dreams Photography and Commissions!
