Hi. I’m Jessica Nigri. I’m 22 years old. I’m cosplaying. Since 2009 at San Diego Comic-Con. I like long walks on the beach. Actually my friend got me a badge to Comic-Con 2009 and I’ve always been like a huge nerd and like a big fan of stuff so I was actually a Pokemon. So I I dressed up as Pikachu because he said well, sometimes people dress up so I had no idea what cosplay was so I dressed up as like sexy form of Pikachu says well before and then I came to Comic-Con and it was kind of a kind of blew up and I was really taken taken aback at the kind of like attention. I had no idea what cosplay was and then after Comic-Con I found out like looking online that cosplay was this thing.
Listen to the audio interview for the rest.
