What's up? I stand roughly 6'4" and have a lean but toned build, my friends either call me Mike, Mikey, Mick, Jingle, or Black Guy (Original, huh?) But hell, I take it in stride. When I'm not hanging out with friends or watching Anime, I can usually be found around the college training in Parkour and Freerunning. This has helped me get stronger and pull off costumes in which I need to have a shirt removed ;D.
The Animes that I watch are; Air Gear, FMA, Death Note, Gurren Lagann, a little Bleach, KissXSis, Avatar: The Last Airbender (Not Anime but close, no?), Digimon, old school Pokemon, and the one that kept me hooked- Dragon Ball Z.
As for personality, I tend to be very serious when it comes to working on things such as school work or exercise and can come off as a hard ass, but this completely betrays my true personality. I can get a smile out of almost any person I meet be it online, or out and about and I always wait for a good joke to keep people interested. I try not to speak too much to people as I like to listen to what other have to say, so if you need a vent- I'm the guy to berate with the hate.
I have always wanted to dress up as my favorite anime characters since I first saw the shows on Toonami- Y'know, when Cartoon Network was good? But I was always told by people that I was too tall to be one person, or too black to be another and this kept me away from it. It took me a little while to feel comfortable in my skin as despite the way I act sometimes, I'm hella sensitive D:. But this is the cosplay bio not the sob story bio.
The firth thing I ever really 'Cosplayed' if you can call it that is a Hunter from Left 4 Dead. I wore that to school on Halloween and I got many a look from people as I rode the bus walked around. I was even asked to do a few tricks for people in which I was all to happy to oblige.
The cosplays that I'm working on this year include; Vanitas's Sentiment from KH: Birth by Sleep, Gray Fox from MGS, and Riku-Ansem from KH2. All of these are going to be time consuming, but I'm ready for a challenge!
