Hi, my Name is Natascha, but you may know me as Knightess Rouge. I’m a self-taught costume maker and gamer from Germany.
I started to create costumes as a way to express my love for my favourite characters, but it developed into so much more. It gives me joy to learn new things and to see a costume come together and hence come to life in my workshop is an incredible feeling.
When I’m not in my workshop, I enjoy playing videogames, watching movies or reading fantasy books.
How did you start cosplaying?
I was always a very passionate and creative person. In school I used to write stories and even roleplayed as my favorite characters with my friends. When I first discovered that there are people who actually make the costumes of their favorite characters and dress up like them, I knew I just HAD to give it a try!
I got a cheap sewing machine from my aunt and taught myself sewing by trial and error. My first costume was a total mess, but I had the best day of my life, so I decided to dive deeper into this hobby.
Growing up very shy, Cosplay helped me to become more confident about myself. To wear a costume gives me the power and self-assurance of the character, but it’s also the joy and love to share the love for the character with other people. It’s the best feeling!
I have big plans for the future and want to try out new techniques and materials to expand my knowledge.
