A Little About Me
I got into the anime and cosplay culture when I started watching Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon as a young teen. During Halloween I always wanted to have a costume based on the characters from animes and video games but never had the time or experience to make my own costumes.
I soon found out that there were many conventions throughout the year where we are able to show our creativity and dress up as our favourite characters. I was very much looking forward to going to my first anime convention and share the fun and excitement with fellow fans.
A few years ago, I started to put more effort into my cosplays but they were still quite simple costumes as I did not yet possess the skills to make more elaborate costumes. I started getting better over the years and aim to get even better each year with creative, elaborate, and memorable cosplays. I am very thankful to be a part of this contest (thanks so much to all who voted for me) and it is a thrill to see so many amazing costumes made by fans around the world. Best of luck to all the finalists!
