How many years have you been cosplaying?

17 years!

What is cosplay to you and how did you get started?

Cosplay for me is a free space to be just as creative as you want. You can follow strict rules for a competition, or throw caution to the wind and just do what makes you happy. It's an amazing hobby that connects so many people.

I got started in 2006, when my best friend in school was going to this "Japan event" in Valby and she knew I liked Japan, so she asked me to join. I agreed, and then she mentioned having been there a year before, that you needed to wear a costume to be cool, so that was my first J-Popcon and cosplay experience, and I have been loving it ever since!

What is your most memorable cosplay experience?

Qualifying to be Team Sweden 2019 for WCS with my now wife. It was an amazing trip and I got to meet lifelong firneds there - and proposed to the love of my life after the event, so that's pretty magical after all. :)

Have you been in Denmark/at J-Popcon before, and what are you looking forward to the most?

Yes I have! I have gone almost every year since 2006, and it really is such a wonderful convention. I am always so excited to see the Artist Alley, and of course the amazing cosplayshow. Every time it blows me away and gives me such inspiration. I cannot wait to see what this year will bring!
