Cosplay Artist Spotlight: Francheezy
The celebration continues, and this week we’re featuring an interview with a cosplayer who dances, sings, and creates. Her Final Fantasy X cosplay caught our attention, and we are happy to have a chance to sit down and chat with her.
Trolling through the Facebook Cosplay forums on a random wednesday, I stumbled across the most gorgeous LuLu from Final Fantasy X cosplay I had ever seen. This is a character that has been on my personal bucket list for YEARS, but I have never been brave enough to accomplish it. I immediately reached out to the artist, and she happily agreed to interview with us! Her cosplay tastes run very similar to my own, and her cosplay depictions are full of life and humor. Enjoy this interview with Francheezy Cosplay!
