The Fan of the Month is a new initiative to bring to light important people dear to us at Ubisoft Québec. Whether it’s a significant player, an ambassador for our brands, a talented cosplayer or an artist who’s wowing us with his/her #FanArt, we want to introduce these amazing fans through a fun Q&A.
To start 2020 off right, we chose Italian cosplayer Shiva Abarai. Since the release of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, she created and wore three exceptionnal Kassandra costumes, as well as taking part in numerous international events. At the launch in Quebec City in October 2018, she teamed up with Krishna Dammert to embody the Alexios/Kassandra pair.
Creative, stubborn and shy.
The Secret of Monkey Island was my first videogame and is my favourite for sure!
My PlayStation 4 and of course, a good videogame.
I follow many cosplayers and creative people and choosing only three is very difficult, but some are always an inspiration with their works, like: @wrightbeat_cosplay (they are actually a couple but I’ll count as one), @phantomtailor and @blinkscoscave.
My first Ubisoft game was Prince of Persia: Warrior Within. And I’m always hoping for a new sequel 😀
As a cosplayer I can say I can be almost be any character I want. Not for real, but it is fun to be that character for a day. I think one of my favourite to interpret is Kassandra, she is strong and determined.
The Secret of Monkey Island, Borderlands and Assassin’s Creed Origins.
I live in Italy and I have seen in person most of the locations where Assassin’s Creed 2 takes place , but I think it would be interesting to see them in the Renaissance period too.
I’m very happy to be part of this community. Thanks to Assassin’s Creed, I’ve met a lot people with the same passion, I traveled and had many opportunities a fan usually can only dream about. I enjoy to see the creations of other fans based on Assassin’s Creed (drawings, costumes, etc) and I think we are all supportive to each other.
I would ask if they have some funny stories to tell related to their work.
