Yasemin Arslan, better known as Vera Chimera Cosplay, a costume designer, pin-up model, actress, and ambassador for cosplay in Australia, is in Singapore for the first time, invited by the Neo Tokyo Project, for GameStart 2014.

Yasemin, well-known for her fiery attitude and dedication towards this hobby, caught the world’s attention when she was chosen for the role of Lilith The Siren in the multi-award-winning game, Borderlands 2.

She will be at GameStart 2014 to speak on the Panel “Bringing Game Characters to Life: Translating Fiction into Reality” on 25 October and judge the Game On! Cosplay Competition on 26 October 2014.

We caught up with the lovely Yasemin to find out a little bit more about her, what she thought about Singapore and what she’ll be looking for as a judge.
