Here at We Love Colors, we love hearing your stories and learning more about people having fun with our products. In the first of our Inside Cosplay series, meet Ginny Di, someone who’s found various ways over the years to express herself with We Love Colors!
WLC: Tell us about yourself.
Ginny: I’m Ginny Di, and I’m a cosplayer, singer, and YouTuber based in Denver, Colorado. I’ve been cosplaying for seven years and sewing for even longer.
WLC: What is cosplay and how did you get involved with it?
Ginny: Everyone has a different definition of cosplay, but for me, it’s pretty simple: If you wear a costume and call it cosplay, you’re cosplaying! For myself personally, cosplaying is about handcrafting the costume and then transforming into the character through not just the costume, but the styling and performance. I started cosplaying as soon as I learned that it existed! I worked at the local renaissance festival in college, and my friends there introduced me to this whole world of conventions that I’d never heard of before. I’d always loved making my own Halloween costumes and renaissance festival garb, so I took to cosplay immediately!
WLC: How did you find out about We Love Colors?
Ginny: A few years ago, I was working on a cosplay of Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas. I looked everywhere for pale blue stockings that I could adapt for Sally’s arms and legs, but all the colors I found were either too blue or not blue enough. Then a friend recommended We Love Colors, and it was easy to find what I needed in the huge variety of color options! Ever since then, it’s been my go-to place whenever I need colorful stockings, gloves, and other spandex materials.
WLC: What was the first product you bought and what cosplay was it for?
Ginny: Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas — I used the Nylon/Lycra MicroFiber Solid Color Tights in Aqua, I believe!
WLC: What do you find at WLC that you can’t find anywhere else?
Ginny: Tights in a zillion colors!! Plus, the fact that you can order a few different items in the same color and they’ll match each other is amazing!
