This Aunty's Cosplay Skills Are Better Than Anyone Half Her Age

What a Queen.

Posted on

Solange told BuzzFeed News that she started doing cosplay thanks to a bet.

"A friend said that I wouldn't have the guts, I chose a character and had the costume made without saying another word. It was Tweety Bird's granny. When it was ready, I took a photo, and posted it on my Facebook," she said.

"I didn't know that I wouldn't be able to stop myself from going to the events", Aunty Sol jokes.

She said that in the beginning she would accompany her daughter, who is a cosplayer, but that three years ago she began participating as well, "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?"

Solange hopes that she can use the attention received for her costumes to spread a positive message, "love, have fun and enjoy life because we don't know when we'll be leaving it behind. When the time comes, I can tell you that I've done everything that I've wanted to."

Solange's next costume event in December, "right now I'm finishing up the painting on my new cosplay, Granny Juju from Jorel's Brother," she said.
