My name is Yan, I'm seventeen years old (turning eighteen soon, yay \o/) and I'm from Brazil :3
I've been to many big conventions in my country, such as Anime Friends and Anime Dreams. I live right next to Rio de Janeiro, which is a very beautiful but hot as hell city ç__ç I started cosplaying in January 2008 after I watched Cloud and Sephiroth cosplayers fighting on Video Games Live and was like "OMG that's so beautiful, I want to be like them
My first cosplay was a Professor (or Scholar) from Ragnarök Online, but since them I've already cosplayed as Dr. Minoru Kamiya (from YuYu Hakusho), Recruit (from Ragnarök Online II), Kaz (from Pangya) and Lord Braska (from Final Fantasy X). I really love buying fabrics, crafting props and all the process of creating a cosplay. It's such a stress reliever!
I hope I can make nice friends here and learn a lot from all the great cosplayers here in this community.
