Today is Monday, which at Somewhatnerdy means its time for another interview with a very talented cosplayer.  Today’s interview comes to us from the land down under and showcases an amazing and beautiful cosplayer.  So without further ado, Somewhatnerdy proudly presents an interview with Mad Maven.

1. Who are you and where are you from?

Mad Maven from Sydney Australia.

2. How did you discover cosplay?

In 2012 I attended my first convention after seeing people dress up I wanted to join in!

3. I absolutely love your Deadpool cosplay.  What made you come up with that concept?

I won’t take credit for what many cosplayers have done before. I didn’t want to do a “sexy / pretty” Deadpool even though Lady D’s scars are removed in the Deadpool corps comics eventually. I like freaking people out (in a good way) so gritty characters that I’m already a fan of are fun to cosplay. I didn’t wear the blonde hair wig because I just wanted to be me and be comfortable because it’s a lot of gear to carry around all day.

6. What is your favorite way to show off a new look?

Wear it to a con because I love interacting with other people.

7. What convention is your must go to?

Everything! Ha-ha actually I want to do some more armored cosplays next year.
