Cosplay Senpai

Jihatsu is an up-and-coming Midwest cosplayer who is following his heart, pursuing his passions, and looking to share his journey of positivity and creativity. He has been cosplaying for just over 8 years, and currently lives and creates his cosplays in Des Moines, Iowa.

Jihatsu has been cosplaying since 2011. He is self-taught, having learned everything about props, armor, wig styling, and make-up on his own. He has had the privilege to guest in the Midwest at conventions like Naka-Kon and is growing his guesting portfolio with conventions like New York Comic Con and Holiday Matsuri. He is a frequent panelist and workshop host, focusing on cosplay community talks, custom styling culture to cosplay, and workshops on dreadlock wig styling for beginners. With his belief that cosplay can be a hobby for everyone, his goal is to motivate everyone to try it and remind us that cosplay is all about what you make of it.
