Welcome to ‘Meet The Abunai! Staff’, a column in which you’ll be introduced to our staff members. Staff members, they’re just like people! We’d love for you to get more acquainted with our dear volunteers and to accomplish this, they graciously agreed to be interviewed
after I threatened them. Come face-to-face with Cynni, our Location & Design manager!
Tell us a bit about yourself!
I am a just graduated mixed media artist who loves to paint! I live together with Amy, 3 cats and my dog, Rinoa. Next to being creative I also like to game, read, bake and watch anime and other series. My favorite food is sushi. I am with the Abunai staff since 2007.
What do you like most about (your position at) Abunai?
I like that I am responsible for a lot of different aspects from the convention. From catering and contact with the hotel to the designs and decoration. I love the diversity of all the different tasks. Kudos for my team! I wouldn’t be able to do it without you!
What’s your favorite Abunai! memory?
When Abunai still was held in Enschede, we had walkietalkies without earplugs. This resulted in some funny situations where our visitors unintentionally could listen in on our internal conversations. Especially one about notoriously bad food.
What is your alignment?
According to this test I am true neutral, however I might be more chaotic neutral IRL.
Do you prefer weeb or otaku?
If you were a magical girl, what style would your outfit be and what would your power be?
I really like the black mage outfits from final fantasy. A more female version of the classic outfit would be for me. With classic, yellow, pointy hat. I would like the power of teleportation and some spells to make things go boom.
Playstation, PC, Xbox, or Nintendo?
I like to play on everything but Xbox (all though they have the best controllers). But I like Playstation best!
If you were to write a self-insert fic, to which anime/manga/game would you transport yourself to? And with which character would you start a relationship?
Sorry guys, no anime or game here. I will transport myself into the Doctor Who universe and start up something with Rory Williams and a little Jack on the side 😉
Favorite karaoke song? Please note that you (may) have to sing your answer at the convention 😉

If you could Cosplay as anyone regardless of your skill(s), who would you Cosplay as?
I already cosplayed my favorite character, namely Yuna, but Amy and I are talking about a duo cosplay as Snow & Serah for ages 😉
What are you looking most forward to this Abunai?
The Matsuri! So much work has been put into this. I can’t wait to see what the visitors will think.
