Cosplay Spotlight: Pharaohmone
Welcome back to Cosplay Spotlight! For the seventh edition we present to you Pharaohmone! As usual, our promise is to bring you some of the amazing work these cosplayers do, but also we will be focusing on the why’s and the how’s!
Pharaohmone is an all-genre digital recording artist and multi-talented costumer, pushing boundaries that both electrify and educate audiences.
Comic Book Therapy – Thank you for taking the time out to speak to us. How have you been doing lately?
Pharaohmone – Thank you for taking the time to sit down with me! As for how I’m doing… If “busy” is any indication of doing well, then I’m fantastic! With a mix of back-to-back projects and events this year, it’s really nice to take a breather and do a little introspection with you guys.
CBT – What got you into doing cosplay?
It’s important to remember that many entries in a given contest are just people who wanted to celebrate their favorite characters in front of a large crowd, and not everyone is equipped to deal with draconian rules and procedures. If I had to say anything to the convention scene at large, I’d tell them to remember that your contestants give up entire portions of their weekend to pay you to put on your programming. Masquerades are often the highlight of many attendees’ visits, and its important to recognize the forces behind your show.
I have to say, hosting a costume contest may seem glamorous — but it also subjects you to being on stage with no break or margin of error for up to hours at a time! That said, I hope to be able to do more shows in the future, and am very thankful to the conventions who gave me an opportunity this year to do so.
