You probably wouldn’t expect to meet a grizzled mom at a cosplay convention, would you? An age-defying soul, however, is only one of the reasons why people fell in love with Solange from Manaus, Brazil. The other is her spot-on costumes.

Solange (aka Tia sol, “Aunty Sun”) buys individual pieces online and puts the costumes together all by herself. “A friend said that I wouldn’t have the guts,” Solange told BuzzFeed News. “I chose a character and had the costume made without saying another word.”

Despite her global internet following, the adorable aunty cosplays locally. “I don’t miss a single event in my city. I’d really like to visit other ones, but have you seen the price of the fares?” Her favorite cosplays include Yubaba from Spirited Away and Muriel from Courage the Cowardly Dog.

“I never thought that I would be well received among the young people, I’ve made a lot of friends during all of this.” Cosplay conventions have become a sort of a haven for Solange: “I can launch myself into the world of make-believe, where anything goes.” Her next event is coming up in December. “I’m finishing up the painting on my new cosplay, Granny Juju from Jorel’s Brother.”
