Rain
Overview

I'm back!! Been on a long cosplay break (2014 to 2018) but I'm back hopefully for good!
I don't really cosplay in the uk anymore as I don't go to cons here as much as I used to if at all. So in the future, more of my costumes will have their debut at Japan Paris expo.


Some backstory if you want to read:

It was in year 2008 during my first year of college. I befriended a college mate who had found out that I also liked anime
and spoke to me about mcm expo. At the time I was pretty clueless I had no idea that cosplay existed,
I didn't know anything about conventions either.
She persuaded me to come along and tried to explain to me what cosplay was.
I didn't get it, my mind couldn't comprehend it at the time.
As if people actually dress up as anime characters! So I thought.
Boy, was I stunned when I finally went to my first expo event!! I was a huge Gintama fan as well and when I saw
someone cosplaying Gin during my first expo, I felt this unexplainable feeling of joy. I was seeing my fav anime characters
projected their right in front of me in real life. It was mind blowing!
I wanted to be part of it, to be an anime character for a day was a childhood dream come true for me. (I used pretend I was sailor moon when I was young).
So after that fun experience, I immediately fell in love with cosplay, faithfully attended mcm expo london up until 2014. Then I started going to Japan Paris Expo from 2013
but since that is usually an expensive trip, I don't bother too much with UK cons.

I've also made a documentary about cosplay with a film group, it got screened at the David lean cinema at the Croydon Clocktower back in 2009, something like that. When I didn't feel so old!
