A Short Interview

  • Who are you and what do you do?
    Bane Grimm/Cosplayer
  • Why do you do what you do?
    I like trying to bring characters to life, bring smiles to people and have motivation for staying healthy.
  • What is your favorite cosplay? (Include a link or a photo would be great)
    I think my favorite will be my first official cosplay, the classic Bane. It’s the easiest/most comfortable.
  • Who / What inspires you?
    Anthony Le was probably one of my first inspirations for Cosplay/Fitness. I saw his amazing Iron Man suits and his testimonial video for P90X and I figured if this geeky guy can do this, so can I. As for what continues to inspire me, my fitness and artist friends. Most have become fellow cosplayers, and we always look out for each other!
  • What is your dream project?
    It think a toss up between Hellboy and The Thing from Fantastic Four.
  • What do you do when you are not cosplaying?
    Socializing, Working, Working out, and Napping!
