Malaysian Hijab Cosplayer
Years Active: 2015-2019 (semi-hiatus)
Diyana starts to cosplay in 2017 and became more active in this year 2018, I often do notice her in events. She has this serene personality, which contemplate with her Saber Lily Cosplay character (Fate Stay Night). Her latest RBC cosplay also looks lovely, when I met her in the recent Cosplay Commuter 2018 event. She is quiet at first, and I believe more friendly when you get to know her better. Early in 2019, Diyana now accepts fabric crafting commissions meaning she can make dresses for other ladies, for a reasonable price.
