Cosplay conventions are not popular to moms, right? You may want to think twice before jumping to conclusions, dears. Because there is a great woman from Manaus, Brazil, who defies age standards and dazzles everyone with her cosplay and costume design skills.
Solange, however, is not a Project Runway finalist so she buys individual pieces online and puts them together all by herself. The results? Marvelous. “A friend said that I wouldn’t have the guts,” Solange told BuzzFeed News. “I chose a character and had the costume made without saying another word.”
But you would expect that this great age-defying woman would cosplay at big events, right? No, Solange cosplays exclusively locally. “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?” she admits.
“I never thought that I would be well received among the young people, I’ve made a lot of friends during all of this,” she continues.
Some of her favorite characters include Yubaba from “Spirited Away,” Granny from “Looney Tunes,” the Dungeon Master, and Rita from “Power Rangers.” Her next cosplay will be Granny Juju from “Jorel’s Brother” and it’s coming up in December 2017.
