COSPLAYER PROFILES: Richard Cheng, The Mecha Cosplayer



Big robot... impressive effects... realistic detail... that is how I would describe the cosplays of Richard Cheng or  more known as Rb Cheng.  Rb is known for cosplaying mostly mecha characters.  When we say "mecha" this refers to costumes which are generally robotic in nature.  One impressive costume I like is his Shockwave and Zoids cosplay.

"I just needed a creative outlet. Cosplay allows me to spend a lot of time happily creating something and then get the stage and get it out of my system all at once," says Rb.

He started cosplaying way back 2005 with the main aim of appreciating the characters that he likes.  He also likes to meet new people however what he said is cool about being in an impressive costume is that you are able to talk to other people about the costume.  Added to that is the ability to give kids a memorable trip in every event.

Rb Cheng says that he was inspired to start cosplaying by cosplayers like Francesca Dani, Alodia Gosiengfiao, Lenfried, Anthony Le, and Clive Lee among others.





Braze yourself for this information folks.  Here are the characters which Rb Cheng had already cosplayed.  Among them are Gundam Dynames, Gundam Unicorn Destroy, Gundam Cherudim, Brawl, Shockwave, Jazz, Bumblebee, Liger Zero Panzer, Deathsaurer, Knightmare Frame Mordred,  Knightmare Frame Lancelot, Marcus Fenix, RF Trooper, Buzz Lightyear, Battle Sister Celestian, Spawn Lotus, Resiklo, Ragnarok Gunslinger, Ragnarok Mage, Khalitzburg, Executioner, Dracten Insectoid, King, Lili :), Kula Diamond.  That was one hell of a list!


What are the best experiences for Rb in terms of cosplaying?  Well there is one place that is memorable to him right now and that is cosplaying in SM Baliwag cosplay event... the reason.... well I have to keep my mouth shut on that.

Other memorable experiences for Rb Cheng includes representing my school and winning 2nd place in the Animahenasyon 2011 cosplay, competing in the finals of TORCH II at Cosmania 2011, and Anthony Le recognizing and featuring his Liger Panzer.

So there you go folks... IT'S COSPLAYER RB CHENG!
