A Little About Me
I’m Joel Delos Santos aka Triggerman. I’m a costume maker and a professional cosplayer. I’ve been cosplaying since 2005 back when cosplay wasn’t that popular in the Philippines.
I cosplayed a lot of characters since then. From Big Alien Robots like starscream from transformers down to the simplest like Kai Suwabara of Yakitate Japan.
I learned different styles of making costumes with all those years of experience and was able to share some of the things I learned to others as well. Before, it was just a simple yet out of the ordinary hobby for me. Now, I can say that in a way, it’s a part of my family’s life.
I met a lot of people and experienced a lot of things in cosplay. Cosplay had done a lot of things for me. Not just a form of entertainment and occasional source of income, like I said, it’s a part of my family’s life because this is where I met my wife who is also a cosplayer and now we are passing the legacy to our daughter.
I would like to thank all those people who voted for me. If it wasn’t for you guys, I wouldn’t be able to land myself a spot in this competition. So thank you very much for voting. But the competition is not over yet, so I’m gonna need your help again. Please vote for me.
Peace, Love and save the Whales!
