I'm a software developer by day, cosplayer by night.
It started at two local Tokyopop Recons at Waterstones in 2008. I went with my school friends where the first time they cosplayed (I ran out of time to make anything) and the second time we all did. After that, it took about a year before I went to my first expo to cosplay and I loved it.
I'm always trying to improve on past cosplays. Each new one gives me a chance to be better than last time.
