NSFW Gamer Cosplay Spotlight – Maki Roll

NSFW Gamer Cosplay Spotlight – Maki Roll

I was first introduced to Maki Roll when an article she wrote about being a black cosplayer went viral on Facebook a couple weeks ago. You should definitely read it when you get a chance if you haven’t done so already, it’s very insightful and well written.

After reading the article I knew that I wanted to interview Maki Roll for the site. Plus she’s from DC so, as someone who grew up in Maryland, I had to show her some love.

After pulling pics for the feature I have to say that Maki Roll is quickly becoming one of my favorite cosplayer. I love her Jade (from Mortal Kombat) and of course Storm, but the Headhunter Nidalee costume has to be the most impressive.

Her strong figure and exceptional costume making skills really help make Maki Roll stand out from the cosplay crowd. Check out the full gallery and exclusive interview below and let me know which ones you guys like the best.

NSFW Gamer: How long have you been cosplaying?
Maki Roll: I’ve been cosplaying seriously (which includes making my own costumes) since 2008.

What made you want to get into cosplaying?
I went to my first convention when I was 16, and just seeing all of the cosplayers made me want to do it.

What’s your favorite costume to wear?
Any of my Storm costumes because I feel empowered by her character. She is also a character that I think I resemble, so it’s really neat getting positive responses from them.

What was the hardest costume you’ve worked on?
To date, it would have to be my Headhunter Nidalee. It took a little over a month to complete. It was also my first time working with Worbla, so there was a lot of trial and error that went into the completion of it. Overall everything came out really nicely.

What costume(s) are you working on currently?
I just came back from Katsucon, so I haven’t began officially working on anything. I’ll be delving into making the all white 80’s Storm body suit. It’s become a tradition of mine to create a different Storm costume every year!

What cons do you attend and which one is your favorite?
My main conventions are: Katsucon, Otakon, Anime USA and Baltimore Comic-Con, however I do branch out to different conventions throughout the year. My favorite convention that I’ve been to so far was NYCC 2013. That’s where Seth Green asked to take a picture of my cosplay group!

What’s your favorite part about cosplaying?
I like meeting people who share the same interests I do. It’s very refreshing to take a break from normal life for a weekend, and just dress as a character you really like and meet others who share the same appreciation. I’ve meet most of my best friends through cosplay.

What characters inspire you?
Any characters that are strong willed but still have sex appeal. I believe that characters can ooze sexiness but still be just as intelligent as their male counterparts. Some of my favorites are Ororo Munroe aka Storm, Lady from Devil May Cry, Kei from Dirty Pair and Selina Kyle aka Catwoman.

List your top 3 favorite video games:
Mortal Kombat, Killzone, and Soul Caliber

List your top 3 favorite movies:
Fight Club, The Boondock Saints, and Akira

What’s your favorite thing about NSFW Gamer?
Your cosplay features! They help me discover cosplayers that I would have never known of before. I look forward to them 🙂

    I was really digging on the Nidalee, but then I hit the Jade pics and the wow factor really kicked up. Poison is hot too… but Jade is for sure my favorite.

  2. Bloodfart says:

    I do like the storm action. I like the Lisa/Mariposa bizness too (Fan of the character). The Kei (Dirty pair) is cool too, gets vintage anime points there.

    But yeah, cool lass, cool cosplays.

    Thanks for sharin’.
