Lawrence Lo

I am originally from Orange County, CA and started attending Anime Expo in 2006 but did not cosplay until 2009. I had no idea what I was getting my self into.
I thought overtime I would grow out of this hobby and after graduating college, I was buckling down for the next 4 years of medical school; but something told me that maybe Medical school isn't where I'm going to find my calling. I am a believer of the saying, "follow your heart" ; so in 2016, I withdrew my admittance, disappointed my parents, and began my quest to make cosplay not only a career for me but for others like me.
I am now a self-employed prop-maker/cosplayer, recently won Best in class for Master/World Division AX2016, will be Kupocon's Exclusive item Prop Maker, and shop owner on ETSY (iWood Cosplay). I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and don't forget to embrace your dreams :)
