Hiya all of you cosplayers! :)

I am Digintegrated Hunter Bill, or DHB, coming from France to discover these intriguing but oh-so fascinating worlds of anime and cosplay!

Yeah, I'm a total newbie... so I won't do so many costumes, though I got 2 in my mind at the moment. They're FF-related: Squall from FF8 and Zidane from FF9. I hope my mother and I would succeed in making them both ready for 2003, to go to the next French con... or even to AX2003! Yeah folks! I will even cross the Atlantic sea to meet US cosplayers there!

Anyway, greetz to Tenshi and Pyxie, the two cosplayers who made me discover this art. Seeya later!

Hi! I'd try out my rusty high school French on you, but I won't submit you to that. ^^ Have some Pocky!

Woo! Another Frenchie on the board! At last...

Aeris: don't worry about me, I can understand English without problems... in fact I study English in my University :D Very nice Aeris costume by the way. ;)

Rosiel: in case you're interested, I live in Bordeaux. I wanna ask you, are you part of a French cosplay group? and do you plan to go to Japan-Expo this year?

How cool... I thought cosplaying was only practised by Americans and Japanese people. I am SO pleased to meet French contacts now. This might help in crafting costumes in the future.

> in case you're interested, I live in Bordeaux.

I'm originally from HyŤres, but I'm working in the US right now.

> I wanna ask you, are you part of a French cosplay group?

No, I started cosplaying when I moved to the US.

> and do you plan to go to Japan-Expo this year?

Sadly, no. ;___; I'm in all likelyhood not going back to Europe for vacation before next year due to lack of vacation days. ;___; I wish I could go though, I have friends who will be attending.

Alas... unless a miracle happens... no Japan-Expo for me!

*crossing my fingers, you never know*
