Cosplay


Why do i cosplay?

It has multiple reasons, including:

  • Getting my mind out of the real world, living by a other identity, which acts to me as a sort of mindfullness.
  • I find the character designs cuter than what i see in the 'normal world' nowadays.
  • It's fun for me to do at conventions: people asking for pictures, meeting with friends, also finding new ones!

When did it start?

My cosplay time started in 2012, one year after my first convention after seeing many people did it percentage wise.

It took me years of figuring out which kind of character designs and their personalities which i like the most for possible cosplays.

Once i found which ones i want to cosplay, i stopped getting all kinds of cosplays and focussed myself more on making my cosplays for those characters more natural and getting close to my personal 'perfection'.

This was around late 2015 when that happened.

Even though i don't go to much japanese conventions at all, i do enjoy them (my average is around one a year) alot.

  1. YaYcon: 2011, 2012, 2013
  2. Abunaicon: 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014
  3. Tsunacon: 2015, 2016
