A renowned Cosplayer of Cloud Strife from “Final Fantasy VIl: Advent Children” and Ichigo Kurosaki from “Bleach” will be one of the judges of AFA Regional Cosplay Championship and will conduct a closed door Cosplay Panel Session at AFA09.
He made his cosplay debut as Cloud Strife of Final Fantasy VIl: Advent Children at Tonari de Cosplay Convention in TFT on December 29th, 2007.
