Ashen Phoenix are a team of Import models that have turned Cosplayers due to their love of Anime and the Japanese culture. With Cosplays ranging from X – 23 to the Baroness, this group of lovely ladies are exciting to see in action. I was able to get them to take a busy from their busy days to answers some questions for us here at Guysnation.com.

Jack Nickelz: So what got you started in Cosplaying?

Ashen Phoenix: We’re a team of models. We come from the Import scene, which has always had close ties to anime, as both are a celebration of Japanese culture. A couple of years ago, we were talking things over with our manager, and realized how nerdy we all were and decided to change the focus of our team toward the Cosplay scene and it just seemed like a much better fit for us. Some of us had already been Cosplaying for years, so they helped bridge the gap for the rest of us. We haven’t looked back since.

Jack Nickelz: Do you remember what your first Cosplay was?10363340_1520518268171833_2469956439991355766_n

Ashen Phoenix: Rangiku Matsumoto

Jack Nickelz: How was your first Cosplay experience?

Ashen Phoenix: Overall, it was great. It was a small anime con, and most everyone seemed very happy to have us there as a team.

Jack Nickelz: How do you pick which Cosplay to do?

Ashen Phoenix: Bleach is one of my favorite series, and what introduced me to anime, personally….and I have the boobs for it lol

Jack Nickelz: Do you have any Cosplay that you are becoming known for?

Ashen Phoenix: Not yet. As a team, we’re still very new, but each of us already seem to have a stand out outfit that people like is more in (i.e. Lily is Captain America, Hollyhocks is X-23 and I’m the Baroness).

Jack Nickelz: What have been some of your fav. Cosplays to do?

Ashen Phoenix: The Baroness so far. Something fun and interesting to be a powerful, evil badass, and not have to gender bend to get there.

Jack Nickelz: Has there ever been a Cosplay that you wanted to do but it was too reveling?

Ashen Phoenix: Not yet. Coming from the modeling world, we’re kind of used to lingerie, so most of it is very easy to do. Although I’m not in a rush for any KLK outfits anytime soon lol

Jack Nickelz: Who have been some of the Cosplayers that you admire?

Ashen Phoenix: Vampy Bit Me and Riddle! Their work is amazing. They can be sexy, but care as much about the quality of their work, as much as showing skin.

Jack Nickelz: Tell us about Ashen Phoenix?

Ashen Phoenix: We are a model team, turned Cosplayers.

Jack Nickelz: Now some Cosplayers end up moving into the world of model on sites like Geek Girls or Suicide girls. Is that something that we will see you doing?

Ashen Phoenix: Well, we’re already a modeling team. So we don’t have any plans on moving onto any sites or affiliations with those companies.

Jack Nickelz: What future Cosplays do you have planned out?

Ashen Phoenix: We’ve got a LOT of outfits coming up soon. Expect some unorthodox characters coming out of us, along with some fan favorites.10366257_1519647731592220_6785455300360574439_n

Jack Nickelz: What conventions are you looking forward to going to?

Ashen Phoenix: Our next two cons are Allentown Comic Con and YamaCon where we’re guests. 2015, we’re excited for Wondercon and AC Boardwalk Con. If you haven’t heard of ACBC, you will. It’s shaping up to be one of the greats.

Jack Nickelz: Have your view of Cosplaying changed since you first started?

Ashen Phoenix: Having been in the scene for two years now, it never ceases to amaze me how many awesome Cosplayers there are and the level of quality that keeps being topped, year to year.

Jack Nickelz: Thank you for taking time out to do this. Is there anything else you would like to say to your “friends” and readers?

Ashen Phoenix: Thanks for the interview! Be sure to follow us on FB, Instagram and Twitter
