Don’t be surprised if your brain suddenly tells you you’ve already seen Kristine Dinglasan, somewhere—because it might be right.
After all, she was featured on a Facebook ad dressed up as Attack On Titan’s Mikasa not too long ago. We made use of our mad research skills and tracked her down. Now here she is, free from her costume, and wearing some comfy clothes as FHM's #NewCrush!
The half-Filipina, half-German model has been actively cosplaying for a couple of years now. In fact, she's also good friends with FHM cover girl and the country’s Cosplay Queen, Alodia Gosiengfiao. She's definitely in good company, right?
"It’s really hard to explain why I find it so interesting, but I’ve always liked it. I love animes and mangas, and I’m really fascinated every time I see people do cosplay," shares Kristine. "When I was still in Germany, I got to know Alodia through DevianArt. When I first went here, I met with her, and she urged me to try cosplaying."
"I really loved the experience. My first cosplay was in 2011, it was Lucy Heartfilia from Fairy Tail. And from there I started learning making my own costumes—sewing and all that."
And what else eats up her time when she's not busy slipping into an awesome costume? "I draw a lot. I do illustrations. It's my regular nine-to-five."
Here's another interesting tidbit about Kristine: You'll need to have an otaku side if you want her to notice you. "I like guys who are knowledgeable when it comes to anime culture. It's definitely a big turn-on for me," she reveals. "If you want to date me, of course there should be a spark. Liking the same things can be a good start, because what are we going to talk about if we don't have similar interests? Ha ha!"
We guess we've given you enough of an appetizer about our stunning cosplayer. It's time for you to do the rest by checking out her FHM Slumbook entry:
