Three Questions with Touya Hibiki and Kousaka Yun

Three Questions with Touya Hibiki and Kousaka Yun

Touya Hibiki and Kousaka Yun are Japanese cosplayers who have teamed up in cosplaying characters from Gintama, Uta no Prince-sama, Vocaloid, and many other titles.

The pair flew to Singapore to take part in STGCC 2012 — the Singapore Toy, Game, and Comic Convention, and sat down with a few bloggers for a quick chat during the press preview.

How did you get into cosplay?

Touya Hibiki and Kousaka Yun (TH & KY): We were invited by friends, and we had so much fun we just kept going!

How do you select the characters you cosplay

(TH & KY): We usually cosplay characters we love! Every now and then, though, we swap characters.

(KY): For example, if I like a really cool character I ask Touya to cosplay for me because I am more suited to cute characters.

(TH): And if I like a really moe character I ask Yun to cosplay for me because it looks really good on her.

Cosplay is becoming popular worldwide, and you’ve been gaining a lot of overseas fans — do you consider yourselves popular?

(TH & KY): Absolutely not! We’re just regular people who like to cosplay.

(TH): Like me for example, I cosplay in between work — I don’t think I can just cosplay all the time!
