Sandy Tang Interview

We catch-up with the extraordinary Sandy Tang who is a self taught makeup enthusiast who loves video games, anime, and all things crafty.

How did you get involved in cosplay?

I knew about cosplay because my sister would do it in high school and I got into it later because of makeup. I wanted to be able to use makeup as an art form to be able to transform into different characters.

Who was your first character and why did you choose them?

I started with Harle from Chrono Cross but I never finished it because I wanted to do her makeup and make it unique to my personality. But my first finished cosplay was Morrigan Aensland from Darkstalkers. I chose her because she was my favorite in Puzzle Fighter.

What do you LOVE about cosplay?

I love cosplay because it is the ultimate crafting skill. You have to learn so many skill sets and you never stop learning or creating different things. Also being able to say “I made that” and have it look good is such a great feeling.

Tell us two things that annoy you about cosplay?

I haven’t had a bad experience with cosplay. I can’t really say anything bad about it.

If you could pick your top two cosplayers, who would they be and why?

Kamui Cosplay because she is so talented and funny.

Vampy bit me because she is talented and beautiful.

What’s been your hardest cosplay so far?

My hardest cosplay would be Aranea Highwind because it will be my first full armor build and I hate making props.

Who do you hope to cosplay in 2017 and beyond?

I hope to do a badass Demon Hunter, Shiva from FF VX, and others that spark my interest.

If you had unlimited money and time, which character would you create and why?

I really don’t have anything in mind that grand. But right now if I had time I would really love to make Devil Mercy.

What’s the coolest thing you own?

I would have to say my dog, Toro. He is a Japanese Akita and he is my best friend.


I don’t think a lot of my things are really geeky. I own a ps4, stuff animals, and figurines.

Ability to fly, so I can travel the world.
