From Twileks to Princess Leia to Marvel’s Black Cat, this cosplayer has it all and is telling all about her Sister Repentia cosplay and more!

This week’s cosplay throwback is to an exceptional cosplayer. Her love of galactic empires bridges Star Wars, Warhammer 40k, and beyond. Through a love of construction techniques and insanely vivid photographic collabs, Sallozare’s Sister Repentia cosplay is something fierce to behold! But beyond the intimidating Warhammer 40k character lays a whole trove of sensational cosplays.

Sister Repentia Cosplayer Interview with Sallozare Cosplay

We’ve sat down with cosplayer Sallozare to learn more about everything cosplay, inspiration, and fandom. She’s an artist who plays in multiple genres and styles for her cosplay project. Not only does she build and wear these constructions, but she also choreographs gorgeous dance routines as well!

How did you get your start in cosplay?

I was always a dreamy girl, The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings were my very first fantasy books. When I arrived at Oni-no-Yoru convention with my sister and me, saw all these wonderful people in costumes with wings, millions of sparkles, elven ears everywhere, demon horns… It was a complete panopticon.

It was the coolest event for me at that moment, and I met a lot of new friends. One of them is still with me, the best friend and best cosplay partner ever!

What do you do with your time outside of cosplay? Any special skills or experiences?

My university specialization is in document management and support, and the second one is translation studies. Now I work as a full-time costume maker and seamstress, but I am self-taught in this 🙂

What are your favorite fandoms? Favorite characters?

The Lord of the Rings universe (Arwen <3), Star Wars universe (I love Shaak Ti so much!), Star Trek universe (Spock), Warhammer (Sisters of the Battle and Repentia Sisters are just awesome, and also Lelith Hesperax is my huge love!) and Raging Heroes characters (Ivanka and Rosario Vasquez are beautiful) are very cool and strong too.

What kind of games do you play? Videogames? Tabletop? Wargames?

I usually do not play PS or PC games, but I really love to read all these stories in text. I really love board games like Mansions of Madness. Honestly, I am not a Warhammer player, but a lot of my close friends are and they told me a lot about it. Now I read very often some Warhammer stories and texts.

What are your favorite movies/shows to watch or music to listen to while you craft your cosplays?

And what about music it is IAMX, Little Big (Russian punk-rave band), The Hatters (street Russian gypsy hardcore), Muse, Kaleo, Sevdaliza, and Tricky.
