8 questions with Vampy With Me

Togged out in sexy outfits that accentuate her va-va-voom figure, cosplay artist Vampy Bit Me never fails to turn heads whenever she makes an appearance at comic conventions around the world, such as the sixth Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention held here over the weekend at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre.

However, the 30-year-old Vietnamese-American, whose real name is Linda Le, insists that fans who meet her in person keep their distance and treat her with respect.

While she does get her fair share of "creepy fans" who follow her on her Facebook page and personal website, she sees it as part of her job.

"Of course, the men are always going to be there but in person, I do have male and female fans who are all very nice," says Le, dressed in a black latex bodysuit and thigh-high boots at an interview at the convention centre last Thursday.

She has more than 100,000 likes on her Facebook page Vampy Bit Me, which was set up in 2010.

The cosplayer, who is dating an artist, has made a name for herself through the outfits she wears based on manga and anime characters.

She posts photos of herself in these outfits online as well as video blogs on topics related to the sub-culture of anime, manga and gaming.

Her moniker, Vampy Bit Me, is based on a manga character called Vampy whom she is modelled after.
