Year Active: 2015

IG: cosplay.bella

Its been ages when it comes to Bella, we have been friends for so long already. I guess if I tried to remembered correctly, I got to know her firstly through social media (facebook) first, and from there I know she likes art and graphics design, and then later through Cosplay Events where I met her face to face, “Oh this is Bella” but of course, at that time she was surprised to know me as the mysterious Mumu, because I was quite a noisy persona myself on socmed at that time.

Her cosplay is, to my observation is quite amazing, and it has the powers to gathers new friends, and at the same time, enemies were drawn to her as well. Her life is a colorful one, and at times when she will be busy with her studies schedules, and she will be on hiatus for a moment, and when she is back, she will come up with an amazing Cosplay, that is Bella.

We had a similar hobby, playing Sims 4 (Computer game) during our free time, and trying out strange things and possibilities within the game.

My communication with Bella has always been great, as she is easy to communicate with, and I personally believe she has so much potential to become a professional Cosplayer in due time.

Her favorite all time Heroine is Chibiusa from Sailormoon.
