ECG, European Cosplay Gathering - Season 9 Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center

Interview with the Danish representative

The Danish solo representative, Lupin, shares her feelings about the selections and the upcoming finals!

Posted on

How do you feel about the upcoming ECG Finals?
Lupin: Might call myself an ECG veteran by now, but what is completely new is the fact that I am in the solo category. It’s something I’ve never dealt in before, so a new and unknown territory is being explored this time around and that is always quite exciting.

Why did you decide to make this character for the selections? 
Lupin: The Marvel universe has been such a huge part of my life for the past couple of years, I just knew I would eventually choose to represent a character from it. As a proud Scandinavian, my choice eventually fell on Loki, the God of Mischief. I grew up with stories about him and his adventures with Thor, not from a comic book point of view, but through Nordic mythology. There has always been something incredibly magnetic about his character, to the point I would call him a misunderstood hero rather than a vilain. Marvel gave him a fantastic new spin, and with an incredible actor to copy and study there was no doubt in my mind that should I ever try a solo performance, Loki would be the perfect choice.

Which part of your costume are you the proudest of? 
Lupin: I think the fact that I could construct it so cleanly without having to add any touch-up details. It was quite time-consuming, but I honestly love how the design is made to look as if every piece is wrapped around him. I also love the crown. I had absolutely no experience in crafting headgears, but there is a first time for everything.

Can you give us a hint about what you plan to do for the Finals?
Lupin: I spent such a great amount of time and passion to create my cosplay for the selections that I simply could not/would not dare to go through that process again, because I hardly think I would come up with anything better.

And now you’ll see Lupin on stage at Japan Expo for the finals on July 7: let’s wish her the best of luck!
