Nardio Cosplay Interview

Ayumu Cosplay


AnimeNext 2017 was amazing. I had so much fun interviewing so many unbelievable cosplayers that I was practically high. I had the amazing fortune to run into almost every dream cosplay of mine. All done better than I could have hoped. Today, I share with you, my fave personal dream cosplay of mine come to life. Say hello to Trevor and his amazing Ayumu cosplay from Is this a Zombie.

I enjoyed the anime a lot. While it was far from perfect, it had a ton of hilarious scenes and great character design. One of the best was Ayumu when he transformed into a magical girl. Its hilarious and it was always one of my own dream cosplays because it would be insanely over the top and I never, ever saw anyone do it before. Well, before AnimeNext 2017 when Trevor owned the cosplay.

I loved it!

Check out our interview below. Beware, I geek out really hard here…

Awesome right? I mean he was amazing! Super nice and chill and just fun to talk to. Trevor is just the sort of cosplayer that I love to talk to and befriend. Check out more of our shots below and take in his awesomeness.
