I entered the cosplay scene in 2006, when my girlfriend at the time pulled me in on a whim. Ever since I have enjoyed expanding my craft and sharing my joy of anime and video games with the world.
The most appealing part of cosplay to me is being able to represent the underrepresented. I am seldom interested in protagonists or overly popular choices; it's the masked ones, villains and comic reliefs that make it fun for me.
Having said that, I love to see all of amazing work that comes out of this community! It's where I have found many close friends and learned many artistic skills I would have otherwise never known. It's forever part of my life!
