As I promised, I did and I bring you my first interview. I didn't expect that preparing the interview is quite a difficult thing, but I hope that it was successful and that you will like it.
To begin, I would like to say that I was very nervous to ask questions and interact with someone so well-known among the Power Rangers fans. I know some fans can be toxic so it was a nice change to be able to talk to someone nice who shared information with me, new to the public realm of Power Rangers.
Here is an interview with Dpcx1489, a fan, cosplayer and fan film maker. We talked about cosplay, Scorpion Ranger and Kombat in the Grid fandomÖ
Rabbit Ranger: So
for the beginning, could you tell me something about yourself?
Why is the
MMPR White Ranger your favorite?
of him like that. What do you do for living?
Interesting. Are you somehow into martial arts?
competitions or only for fun?
Have you dreamed about creating your own Rangers persona as a child?
When did you
decide to do Power Rangers Cosplay?
OK, I will get
more to Scorpion Ranger soon. Do you own other Ranger Cosplays?
Rabbit Ranger: So the Scorpion Ranger was your first?
Rabbit Ranger note: Besides Ranger cosplays Dpcx1489 has done many other cosplays like Deadpool, Ryu, Jin, Punisher, Superman, Casey Jones, Spiderman and many others. You can see all of his work on his Instragram. (link in the end).
So let's talk about
Scorpion first. I suppose that you're great fan of Mortal Kombat and
Scorpion. Am I right? Is he your favorite character to play in
Rabbit Ranger: Did the Scorpion Ranger design just pop up in your
head? How long have you been altering the design to the final stage?
Do you have some early
Rabbit Ranger: That helmet design is incredible. Did you decide to
stick with Power Morpher from MMPR, because it is your favorite
I see that Scorpion has
White Dino Ranger's boots a some parts of his shield. Is he also
your favorite, or is it only coincidence?
And at first you used
Motal Kombat logo and then changed it. Could you please tell me what
yours logo represent?
Rabbit Ranger: So it represents colors of Mortal Kombat Rangers as
well as LGBTQ? That is really neat and cool, I think. It has what
Power Rangers should stand for, I really like it. OK, so back to
your Cosplay. How did you choose creators of your parts?
Can you name who made
which part for you? Were you satisfied with all suppliers and their
prices and delivery time?
Okay, thanks. Last two
questions about cosplay. Did you think of visiting hospitals to
cheer some ill children? I think it could be great.
Do you think that
Scorpion is too scary for children or that they don't know him?
Rabbit Ranger: I absolutely agree. And the last cosplay question.
What would you say to aspiring cosplayers? What should they focus on
and what should they avoid?
Different shapes and sizes, different ethnicity, gay, lesbian, straight, it don't matter. At the end of the day cosplay is cosplay. There's a lot of toxic in the whole cosplay community. We gotta understand love is love. No matter what color or anything we all must unite. And at the same time there's whole bunch of body shaming and stuff, like it doesn't matter. Like once a cosplayer, always a cosplayer. Never be judged or whatever anybody else can say about you. You have a dream and you fulfill it. No matter what. You have a vision, do it.
So what can you tell me
about Kombat in the Grid from your perspective? Is it dream come
true, or what?So this project was all your idea? Did you write the
Rabbit Ranger: Did you design all Mortal Kombat Rangers?
Rabbit Ranger: It is great to have support in family. So are you
saying that Rangers have something from different seasons?
I have seen the first
two episodes, Need to rewatch and also add the third one.
Absolutely will do. So
now you are planning to release episode 4, how many episodes are you
planning to end the story?
Rabbit Ranger: Cool, I didn't expect that. How long does it take to
film one episode? And also finish it with effects?
And preparations before
shooting? How many days before do you plan shooting date, because it
must be hard to ensure everybody is free.
Rabbit Ranger: How many people and actors work on the set? How did
you find your crew and cast?
That is the large group.
Can you please describe the course of the filming day in more
Rabbit Ranger: Ok, but sometimes you are really on some set, not
just before green screen. What after the shooting? Do you go to beer
to discuss the shooting day?
Rabbit Ranger: So do you guys know each other before Kombat in the
Grid? How long is this group together?
I just heard theme song.
Was it planned or is it from some fan?
It was really nice to
talk to you like this, to ge to know the Scorpion Ranger more
personally. It is great to know that this fandom has such friendly
people in it. Thanks for your time and experience.
And one final question.
What do you think of the Rabbit Ranger design?
