What made you think of your cosplay name?
Warz Gill starts with a W, my last name starts with a W, so I said why not? The name originally came from Super Sentai Gokaiger. The main antagonist was King /Admiral of the enemy fleet opposing the Power Rangers. I think of myself as a king, it’s a kings name. I only Cosplay kings, but we’ll get to that in a few questions.
Where do you live? How is the cosplay scene there?
I live in Detroit, Michigan, and I live with some pretty creative people who cosplay, and they’re confident. Some of them are an inspiration to me and they make me wanna do it because it’s a great way to spread positivity. Long story short, the scene is awesome, the people are awesome.
So far my favorite character to cosplay is Black Panther. It’s the one cosplay that I’ve received the most positive feedback, and I’m just in time for the movie.
My second favorite character to cosplay would be Zeref Dragneel from Fairy Tail because he’s the emperor of his own civilization, the main antagonist of fairy tail and the ultimate black wizard…..who almost won! Also we have a lot in common, he’s just one of my favorite characters period.
Do you buy outfits or do you make them yourself?
My first major project was a helmet for Hela from the Thor Ragnorak movie. I used black primer, gloss poster board plastic dip on an old hat. The project was successful, and I can’t wait to unveil it.
Who’s your favorite character to play?
It’s between Zeref and Black Panther.
What do you feel about the presence of (or lack thereof) POC in the Cosplay scene?
I don’t really have anything to say other we need more positive cosplayers in the community, we need everyone to get put out there

I love cosplay conventions, mainly Youmacon, and Shutocon. I wish to explore more down the line.
