What’s your name & how old are you? My name is Houston and I’m 22

How long have you been cosplaying? I’ve been cosplaying for almost 6 years now, started this hobby in 2013

What inspired you to start cosplaying? A mate of mine from high school had been attending conventions for a while and invited me along for my first Supanova, seeing a whole herd of nerds walking around in the same costumes I had as a kid made me think there was still hope left for some of us, after that I just spiralled down the cosplay rabbit hole

What was your First Cosplay? My first cosplay was Rock Lee from Naruto. I got all my ninja gear together the week before the con from Yobe Cosplay, borrowed the Chunin jacket from a mate, and went to Wai-con 2013 and made a complete fool of myself in a bright green jumpsuit as bushy brows

What is your most recent cosplay? My most recent cosplay was Mount Lady from My Hero Academia and I never planned to cosplay her, the night before the con I started trying on cosplays that probably wouldn’t fit me, she did so I thought hey why don’t I just wear this instead

What cosplays are you currently working on? Currently, I don’t have any big builds going just some small props such as; Shiro’s arm, Aizawas goggles, Nightwings escrima, and after that, I’ll move on to getting Dio Brando ready for Smash

Who are your favourite cosplayers in the community? Some of my favourite Australian cosplayers are; Katyuska Moonfox, Kennacos, Justllew, and Mukuroma

Who else do you want to cosplay? After I finish Aizawa, Dio and Shiro, I want to make the Robin suit from Titans, and maybe add Hanzo to the list

Tell us an odd fact about yourself! I’m super into Power Rangers and Evangelion, so naturally, that meant I auditioned for this year’s series Beast Morphers and got a tattoo of Shinji and Unit01 on my leg
