“I grew up in the anime, comic book, video game genre. Being the youngest of three, I absorbed both my brother’s interests and became a super geek for all things fiction. I started off with the classics like: Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon, and Saint Seiya (also, classic Nintendo). Then, expanded to comic books. I’d save my money throughout the week so I could go and purchase comic books every Wednesday. However, around 7 years ago, when the Marvel franchise stopped becoming a secret little nerd cult and became the mainstream company it is today, I switched over to anime. Thank God! Having explored every single geek route, I had found my niche and I’m a total anime (otaku) lover. Don’t get me wrong, I still have my share of comic books and video games here in there (since it’s not something one can easily shake off) but my main fix comes from Japan. In consequence, all of my cosplays are anime inspired. I try to remain original in my costumes and never try to stick to the specific design of the character, always adding more to their “look” hoping to make them better and unique. Competitively I’m my biggest rival, always trying to better my own cosplays (which I make entirely myself; or put together) and pushing the envelope in creating showstoppers. I hope to gain some notoriety with my work and to continue making friends with similar interests.”
