I started cosplaying with a group of friends when we heard about anime cons in 2001, and went to my first convention (Minamicon 8) dressed up with no idea what to expect. Needless to say, I was hooked on the hobby as soon as I started. I love being creative, and above all I love problem solving - cosplay fits these both perfectly, especially when it comes to working out how on earth you are going to make such extreme costume designs come to life.
