Izzy, I think iinm I met Izzy around 2017 sometime during an event, not sure which one. Izzy has this special feels around her that makes things simple, iinm she is quick tempered and likes to befriends with everyone. Currently studying in UiTM, and we often only meet during ACG events. She likes simple people too, also avoids complex conversations. She is Mus’s girlfriend. Abbreviation “iinm” = if i not mistaken.

Q n A

Question: Do you have a Cosplay page?

Izzy: IG @izzygretchenofficial


Question: Most of your props are DIY?

Izzy: Yes


Question: What is your most favorite Anime? Cartoon?

Izzy: Re Creators, Your Lie in April, Kagerou Daze (Mekakucity Actors, Date A Live, No Game No Life, Little Busters. Well I rarely watch anime nowadays.


Question: Do you still recall of whom inspired you to venture or further improve your Hijab cosplay?

Izzy: Saakira Izumi and Nico Haruna because both of them are able to contribute more than just cosplaying in the ACG community.


Question: Do you find Hijab Styling for Cosplay Difficult?

Izzy: Yes and no. Yes because I started to buy a few coloured shawls for cosplaying and I didn’t know how to wear it at first. I usually wore a black bawal to wherever I go (I have 4 of them, same colour). No because I rather do simple hijab styling. It feels taking a lot of time to style my hijab into characters


Question: How many hours did you spend on average to complete one set of cosplay?

Izzy: I don’t know how to sew yet so I bought them online or by tailors. If the character has a prop then depends on what kind of prop. For example, took less than a week to make a sword and around 2 weeks for a scythe. If I’m too busy for prop making, I’ll pay a friend to make them for me (Tehee~)


Question: Do you have socmed account? (FB, IG, Twitter)

Izzy: FB : Izzy Isabel Gretchen / IG : @izzygretchenofficial


Question: Where are you from?

Izzy: KL, Malaysia.


Question: What is your most favorite Cosplan?

Izzy: Altair from Re Creators. From that anime, she holds a very important role as the main villain and her reason to make the world gone chaotic is rather saddening. (Go watch the anime, I ain’t giving spoilers hahahaha)


Question: Do you also draw your own artwork?

Izzy: I can’t draw but I do have a Photography FB page. Search for Elements Pixelgraphy.


Question: Do you currently have a favorite Husbando / Waifu?

Izzy: Vocaloid Fukase, I just love his voice.
