Hey all, I'm Paul (rhyme!)
I sometimes go by Oshi, my original characters name.

I'm almost a complete newb to cosplay. Havn't made a costume in years, since a halloween costume. But... in my mind, I can do anything...

I'm a diehard gamer, favorite to Nintendo and Sega, and I love Sonic the Hedgehog games.
I am, unfortunately, one of those people who discovered anime through... Pokemon. Around where I live, anime and manga are hard to come by without a decent length drive. So uh... don't yell at me for this... I have many bootleg episodes downloaded.
I am an artist! Not a great one. But pretty damn good. Uhh... sample: http://gamix.org/paul/sigh.jpg That's just a sketch. I plan to ink and color it

Back to cosplay... I have designed a costume for myself, as Oshi, as well as several Sonic the Hedgehog costumes. I plan to make one of Shadow. It's possible I will go with a friend as Shadow and Amy to AXNY this year, if all goes well.
Looking through the galleries on this site really reignited my interest in costuming... And uh, on a side note, some of you girls are very good looking ^_~

Oh yeah; I'm 17.887762 years old as of this edit ;D

Oh yeah, one other thing...
I don't know if any of you have heard of the art of Spriting, and sprite-comics... but I run a site based on databasing and reviewing them... so, yeah, that's at http://gamix.org/
Yes, I am a web programmer too. Jack of all trades, be I.

(And, that's what my avatar is. A sprite of Oshi.)

greetings Oshi! I'm Scoti nice to meet you. So Oshi is your original character huh.. Where did you get the Ideas from?

Well, the name, Oshi Hidra, was originally assigned via a Digimon RP back in Yahoo Chat. I mixed some attributes from a 'deceased' character. Originally he had spiked up hair, and wore a vest instead of that black trench-looking coat. I've really lost track of the evolution, but I can tell you now that he's psionic/telekinetic, and has a hi-tech katana called the Sintara... *shrug* I got some random pictures I made at http://gamix.org/paul/oshi.htm
