"Cosplay for us is truly a passion, but more specifically is an art, is the challenge to bring the impossible into reality. Better said, we think of it as the art to became dreams true. It's truly a unique and personal challenge and an adventure where we can discover that there is nothing impossible when someone loves enough what he does so his passion take him trough any challenge just to create his art.
We are focused on keep growing as an artists cause Cosplay has become our full time passion, that's why we are committed to it completely.
