Born and raised in Ghent (Belgium), I'm one of Belgiums
very first cosplayers. I begun to cosplay in July
2005 with Rip Van Winkle (Hellsing) costume
who got published in Anicoz, the American Cosplaymagazine.
I won the first price at the Facts
competition with my Sister Esther Blanchett costume in October 2009 and was been selected to represent Belgium at the Euro Cosplay 2010 in London. Till today I got several prizes on my name such as the second prize individuals at the Facts Convention 2012 with my Esther Blanchett "Star of Hope" costume, the first prize at the Japanimationday 2012 with my Queen Esther Blanchett "Black Pearled" costume.
Through years I've organized and judged various cosplay competitions like the Hasshin! and the Antwerp Con CosplayCompo. In 2011 I also organized the cosplay competition to select a second Belgian Qualifier for the Euro Cosplay 2011. I still function as judge at the Antwerp Convention each year (with exception the year 2013 as I couldn't join because of the passing away of my beloved father).
Meanwhile I try to promote cosplay as much as possible in every way. Was been interviewed about cosplay for De Standaard, Flair and Belgian national TV-Channel VTM. Was been selected to join the Urban Crafts Awards in 2012.
Next to cosplay, I also practice photography and am member of several New Thought groups. ^___^
