Iíve been cosplaying since 1999 and have so far made 30+ costumes.
The reason I cosplay is simply because itís fun! I love being creative and cosplay is a great way for me to express myself and having fun dressing up as my favorite characters.
My cosplay works have given me a couple of job opportunities. The biggest one was in August 2009 when I got invited by Nintendo of Europe to follow them on a press tour for Metroid Prime Trilogy in Germany + a photoshoot for an ad (the pic down to the left on this page).
Iíve also had the honor to hand out awards on the annual Swedish Video Game Gala for three years and I've also dressed up as Samus on Webhallen to promote the release of Nintendo 3DS and also worked for Nintendo/Bergsala in Sweden by dressing up as Samus and Zelda on Gamex convention 2010 and 2011.
Iíve won two cosplay awards for my old Varia costume (peopleís choice, and best costume on Uppcon 08) and Iíve won twice on a cospay competition at Webhallen, once with my Raiden costume and once with my Diblo III costume.
Iíve been interviewed for various cosplay and video game magazines and sites (for example Nintendo Power. Level. Electronic Gaming monthly. N-Zone. Din Teknik. Uppsala Nya Tidning. Nintendo.se). Hereís some examples from the magazines where Iíve been featured:
