Hi to everyone! I'm Misch.Axel, I was born in Poland but I actually live in Italy where I started my biggest hobby the Cosplay! I actually style wigs on commission and I make some tutorial videos on YouTube. I studied in a Cinema school and I became Makeup Artist.
How did you start cosplaying?
Oh, it's a little funny but I was already doing a sort of 'cosplay', I was dressing like some characters like Light Yagami without knowing that this hobby existed! A friend noticed my costume and told me about the Cons and the Cosplay community, haha.
What's the best part of cosplay for you?
I've always had an artistic soul, so the best part for me is the creation, when you try to sew the costume, styling the wig, doing a good makeup to be similar to the character, these are the steps I love the most.
What was your first cosplay? Why did you choose that character?
My first cosplay (when I started going to the Cons) was Shin Okazaki... it wasn't a great cosplay, hehe xP I just put my clothes the most similar to him and dyed my hair.
I chose that cosplay, because I really loved the manga and anime, I loved Nana and Reira and I was kinda similar to him.
Where do you find inspiration for your original characters?
Well, this is a hard question, I need to say that I usually just have an idea and I start to figure out how the character can be, I think about a theme and I start to draw the hair and the clothes and every detail until the character is complete. I choose the colors and search for the fabrics, of course I choose the one I like the most! ❤
Are you currently working on some costume?
Oh, I am actually doing a contest about wig styling, so I am not working on my cosplays at this time, unfortunately, I don't have enough time, but I can show some work in progress about the contest itself!
Ha-Ha-Ha, well it's not simple to explain what I think, we need to remember that Tabata-san and the Square Enix staff had only a few years to 'save' the FFXV project , so they did a great job. I like the game, especially the side quests, because we can understand many things about the characters and the most important topic in my opinion about the game... Friendship. For the story I am not really satisfied. I think that too many parts are missing and the story could be developed better, while for the ending... the first part was ok - Noctis , Lucis, the Throne... it could be a good final, but after that there is another part of the ending... and I was really uncertain about that part.
Which one is your favorite FF game and character?
The favorite one is the Crisis Core. Talking about characters, I like many... in the past it was Cloud, because I was feeling similar to him, especially in personality.
How did you start styling wigs?
Before starting cosplay I was already cutting and dyeing my hair, when I began and decided to cosplay some silver hair and red hair characters... I understood that I couldn't let my hair grow and then dye it... so I searched for some wigs and not being styled I just tried to do it by myself.
Tell us about the cosplay society in your country.
I think it's pretty similar in every country, there are friends, jealous people, haters... but for the most we are a big family and we see each other also outside the conventions 🙂
Recently you participated in a Worldwide wig competition, tell us more about those kind of events.
Yeah it's true, I was selected along with other awesome wig stylist for a worldwide competition all about wigs. Arda wigs sent us the materials and decided when the competition starts and all the rules about it. There are different rounds and the contestant with less points go home at the end of every round... until the final round that is starting the next days and I am still in 🙂
3 random things you love and 3 you hate?

What's your favorite recipe?
Recipe? If we talk about food I love Lasagna xP
