Lyz Brickley is a cosplayer and content creator from Southern California. Her first cosplay was at Blizzcon in 2009 and she has been a prominent part of the community ever.

What first drew you to cosplay?

I actually kind of got into cosplay by accident. I had heard people dressed up at conventions, so I made a costume for my first con, Blizzcon in 2009. I had no idea there was this whole community of cosplayers but once I discovered it I was hooked!

What is the most satisfying thing about Cosplay

Hands down the most satisfying part of cosplay is when you put on a costume you made for the first time. When everything just comes together just right, it's amazing.
