What got you into cosplay?
Back at Comic-con 2005, I saw several people walking around the streets wearing costumes. I didn't know what it was nor why people were doing it but it definitely caught my attention. I immediately purchased a badge to find out more about the event and unintentionally discovered the world of cosplay.
I was anxious to dress up as my favorite character as soon as possible wishing to portray as best I could my favorite animated characters.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume was Momo Hinamori from BLEACH back at Anime Expo 2006.
I was preparing myself to debut Sakura from Naruto Shippuden at Comic-con 2006, however in one of my trips to LA we stopped at Orange County only to find the streets of Disney way packed with cosplayers walking around. My bros and I had no idea what was going on but it was heaven to see so many characters of our fav series in the streets xD
That night we did an all nighter and made a last minute put together cosplay along with my sist and I dress up as Hinamori from BLEACH.
What is your favorite costume and why?
My favorite cosplay is Kurogane from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle.
I became very fond of that character with time. Every time I hear CLAMP, I only think of making a new version of this guy.
