Maakie I give a lot of lectures and workshops at conventions in the Netherlands, so I'm used to seeing text written by me in con-books.

But this is something different, for my next convention I will give lectures and workshops on (Stripdagen 2013) they have literally used all the text I wrote for them and put a cosplay-picture of me next to it!

Also, this is not your regular small con-book, it's a glossy magazine in a4-size! So I was very amazed to see this!

At the Stripdagen 2013 I will really wear my Lyserg Diethel costume for the last time! I have been cosplaying him for way too long, i know! xD

The picture is still made by Chau Kar and the model is me.

I tried to make the text in the magazine still readable for online readers, but there is a size-limit here at! xD
I was first introduced with Shaman King when it came on local television. Unfortunately, the series was removed after only a few episodes, making me interested in more. So I decided to watch the full series in Japanese (instead of the Dutch dub I saw on television). When the character Lyserg was introduced for the first time, I really liked him. I also liked his costume so I was thinking about maybe cosplying him. When the X-Laws came, I also thought they really looked cool. "Man, too bad there aren't really young characters with them, otherwise I could have done such a cool costume." Then *SPOILER ALERT DON'T READ IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED SHAMAN KING YET* Lyserg (a character i already liked) turned evil and joined them! AND HE GOT A COSTUME WITH SHORT SHORTS! HSKJDAGDSKAHDSAKH

So that's how I decided to cosplay Lyserg. xD
