A Little About Me
Getting to the finals is a great honor and my personal victory. Thanks to everyone who helped to achieve this goal, especially my Latvian, Lithuanian, Israeli friends!
I'm young and haven't been cosplaying much - since 2008 only. But what I like about this hobby is the chance to be someone else for short time, to create, to stage, to perform.
Series: Mortal Kombat 9
Description: After winning Best of the Best award as Kitana I couldn't help but cosplay as Jade. I like the design of this character, and also pretty much enjoyed performing in this costume. ^^ LEDed staff also turned out nicely. This particular photo was taken in Israel.

Character: Lucrezia Borgia
Series: Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
Description: It was a challenge of some kind. Lucrezia is an interesting character, impulsive, demonstrative and also historical. (: Ah, these Borgias.

Series: Code Geass (mutuality artbook cover)
Description: Funny case, when you decide to cosplay something before watching the anime. (: Though after watching Geass I fell in love with it completely and also found that C.C and me are similar in some way. Being her even for some short time was delightful.
