Cosplayers – like other artists – have a learning curve they have to go through if they want to achieve greatness, but it seems that Justyna Sosnowska has found a shortcut. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not saying Sosnowska (also known as Sosenka) hasn’t put in the hard work, but that the combination of her incredible dedication and talent has allowed her to achieve stunning results in just 3 years.
Sosenka has a Landscape Architecture degree and her interest in SFX makeup started only in 2014, as a hobby. It quickly evolved into something much bigger, though. “I fell in love with what I do,” Sosenka writes. She also thinks she has learned a lot of things along the way: “From various technical methods of mapping the images of the characters to strengthening certain personality traits such as patience, precision, succession in pursuit of the goal.” This eventually led her to trying cosplay, and in this area the Pole realized her true potential.
From simple, yet perfectly executed 30-minute cosplay challenges to painstakingly intricate full-body costumes, Sosenka isn’t afraid to try new things or portray a wide array of characters.
