Our last feature model this month is one of the dopest submissions we’ve received! Check out this interview on the amazing and beautiful Rumitto!
What made you think of your Cosplay name?: It’s actually a combination of my old Tumblr and GaiaOnline(throwbaaaaaack) names and I just changed it around a bit!
What made you get into Cosplay modeling?: I think it’s a really liberating experience! I see so many people who’s confidence and body positivity have shot up in this field and I wanted to try it out myself
How long have you modeled?: I started seriously doing this a for almost two years
Who’s your favorite character to model?: I really love to wear Tharja! She’s one of my favorite characters from FE: Awakening
2nd favorite?: Maybe Candela or Joseph Joestar
Do you buy outfits or do you make them yourself?: Both, it just depends on time and if I have the skill to make it myself
What do you feel about the presence of (or lack thereof) POC in the Cosplay scene?: I’m glad to see it growing! I still think there needs to be more features of cosplayers in the PoC community who aren’t like “Cosplay Famous” because I feel like there are so many great people that get swept under the rug
What are your favorite Cosplay events to attend?: I really love Anime Festival Orlando and Katsucon
Will you be at PUNK BLACK Cosplay Edition?: I unfortunately can’t make it!
Are you watching any dope animes or any shows with Cosplay worthy characters?: YES. Nanbaka, Little Witch Academia, and the second season of My Hero Academia

Who was the photographer of your chosen photo?: Francisco Nazario Photography aka nazariophoto on IG! He’s a good friend of mine and an awesome photographer
Can you tell us anything about them? Maybe why you dig them as a photographer or a cool story about you two?: Yes! I met Frank through another one of my cosplay friends and I saw the shoots he did for my other friends and absolutely loved them. He’s super professional and humble and honestly just a great person to hang with whether he’s doing a photoshoot or not. I definitely recommend him if you want quality photos!
Is there anything you want your fans and the fans of PUNK BLACK to know?: Pineapple pizza is disgusting and I love Peeps. I’m all seriousness though I want you guys to know that I’m so thankful for everyone who’s supported me this far in my cosplay life, and I really appreciate all the support and kind words! I hope to continue on and create content you guys can enjoy!
