How many years have you been cosplaying?
Since 2010, so 7 years.
What is cosplay to you and how did you get started?
Cosplay is a wonderful opportunity to embody a character that you love. It's a way to be an active and participatory part of the fan culture that deals with gaming and/or comic books/movies you love. Additionally, it is a great way to meet new friends with similar interests.
What is your most memorable cosplay experience?
World Cosplay Summit 2015 with my wife. We got the most amazing friends and experiences that we will never forget. When we came on the scene after having appeared, we were greeted by the man who was our stand-in-organizer and our student helper. They both knew how nervous we were, and both cried with joy on our behalf.
Have you participated in J-Popcons competitions before, and what do you look forward to in relation to "to be on the other side of the assessment"?
Yes, several times; both the Saturday and Sunday show. I look forward to enjoying the acts, empathy and drive!
