How do you feel about the upcoming ECG finals?
Reta & Nani: This is our first international competition, so we're nervous but also super excited! It will be fun to go to a big foreign event and see cosplayers from all over Europe.
Why did you decide to make these characters for the selections?
Nani: Reta got a performance idea about a sweet but psycho type of girl, and we managed to bring that idea alive with Date a Live characters.
Which part of your costumes are you the proudest of?
R & N: We are overall happy with the clean details of the costumes, such as Shido's hand-embroidered badge and Kurumi's corset. Making an underskirt with LED lights was also interesting.
Can you give us a hint about what you plan to do for the finals?
R & N: We both have passion for performing, so we plan to use all our skills to make an energetic and entertaining show! For that, we have picked a perfect idol duo with cute costumes and fun personalities. We hope we'll have a nice time with the audience!
And now you’ll see Reta and Nani on stage at Japan Expo for the finals on July 6: let’s wish them good luck!
