I first discovered cosplays when I bought a book of the best cosplayers in Japan. When I went to the May 05 expo it was my first time to see cosplayers and I told myself I would cosplay one day.
My first cosplay was Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist at the October Expo 05.
I have 2 proud moments: the first is when our Lucky Star group did the opening dance at JapanEx 07 and got such a fantastic response from the audience. The second was when I won a spot prize for my Yami Yugi cosplay at the Anime Day in HMV last August as it was the 1st prize I had won :D
The greatest achievements are that I have made loads of friends and that I have grown in confidence thanks to taking part in masquerades, I do get very nervous but when the audience cheers for you, you feel such a sense of achievement :D
