A Little About Me

Hey all! My name is Andrew from San Diego. I try to use my background in electrical engineering to make my cosplays more awesome and I love the challenge of making armor. I am also lucky to have a lot of support from my cosplay friends/photographers, and most importantly plenty of encouragement from my awesome wife!

Description: The actual cosplay didn’t take me too long to make, but I did go on a strict diet and exercise routine for 8 weeks and lost 14 lbs to fit the character better =P.
