Cosplayer Spotlight #15: Avalon Cosplay

My name is Kayla, but I also go by the name of Avalon Cosplay. I’m 22 years old, an art graduate, and a cosplayer based out of Orange County, New York. I’ve been interested in cosplay since high school (about 6 years now), but only started getting into it around three years ago. I loved it since the beginning and there’s no way I’m stopping now.


From Up on Poppy Hill

I went into this anime not really knowing what to expect. I had heard that Goro Miyazaki’s sophomore effort was better than his first, and that it was potentially the script written by his father, anime legend Hayao Miyazaki, that made exceeding the level of Tales of Earthsea an assumption rather than a question. I don’t know if all of that is true, but regardless, From Up on Poppy Hill took a now-standard crop of anime and general film tropes and turned them into an emotionally intense, immensely relatable film.
