This Mom's Cosplay Rivals The Best Out There
Cosplay may seem like a younger generation's game but the truth is, it's for everyone. That's no exaggeration, in fact, it's actually a core concept of the favored past time. Your size, race, gender, age... none of it prevents you from being all you can be or anything you desire to be. Cosplay really is for everyone.
Case in point? Meet Solange! She's also known as "Tia Sol" (or Aunty Sun) and this older mama based out of Manaus, Brazil has defied the masses to prove that all it takes is heart to embrace and be embraced by the Cosplay community. Her costumes are perfect, totally spot on, and it all started from a dare by a friend that spawned after she began attending Cosplay Conventions with her daughter!
Telling Buzzfeed News, Solange said:
A friend said that I wouldn't have the guts. I chose a character and had the costume made without saying another word.
Solange now has a global Internet following but the truth is, she only cosplays on a local level!
I don't miss a single event in my city. I'd really like to visit other ones, but have you seen the price of the fares?
And for Solange, being embraced by the Cosplay community was totally unexpected:
I never thought that I would be well received among the young people, I've made a lot of friends during all of this. I can launch myself into the world of make-believe, where anything goes.
Her favorite characters include Yubaba from Spirited Away and Muriel from Courage the Cowardly Dog but for her next, fast approaching event, she's been kind enough to let us know what to look forward to:
I'm finishing up the painting on my new cosplay, Granny Juju from Jorel's Brother.
