Well my interest in Cosplay started several years ago when I was surfing the internet. I came across an ad on the web saying: "Do you like Cosplaying?" When I saw that ad, I also saw some displayed pictures which I reconized some of the characters that were being shown, I thought it was really cool ^_^. So I got some ideas of what I wanted to do. Problem was there was no one else to cosplay with at the time I thought I was the only one interested it Cosplay. A few years later I found my old friend who used to work in a card/plushie/board game shop... It shut down -_- What a drag as I really liked that shop... Anyway we were talking about some stuff and then Cosplay came into the conversation. We were both sooo driven to try this Cosplay thing out so we decided to get organized and try to get to one of the conventions in the Uk. Luckily we found one in London: London Excel. It was in October 2009 that me and my friend made our first appearence as Jaden Yuki (Me) and Yusei Fudo (My friend). We had a BLAST! I couldnt remember the last time I had so much fun in one place within two days. I have another appearence this Month and year: May 2010. I dying to see everyone again and I cant wait for that day XD. My proudest day, I think was when I actually Convinced myself to get the money and forced myself to go (Money problems got in the way) but all in all I had so much fun; random huggles off of loads of people (It was crazy but in a good way XD). My greatest achievement I think was when I actually got to the Expo in Cosplay and began to have fun for the first time in god knows how long. ^_^
