Introducing Dario Cosplay, one of Italy's cosplay founding fathers.
Dario unknowingly got his start in 1994, dressing up with friends as King of Fighters' Kyo Kusanagi at a local carnival. He discovered cosplay soon after in 1995 at a convention in Rome. Throughout the years, Dario has fostered his passion for costume making, resulting in awards throughout Italy and worldwide.
Dario has been a guest at many events including Lucca Comics & Games, Romics, World Cosplay Summit, Japan Expo, and Comiket. With over 20 years of experience and recognized for his attention to detail, Dario has now become an esteemed judge in several international cosplay contests including World Cosplay Summit, ECG, and Eurocosplay. Currently, he is working with CosplayGen and Lucca Comics & games to develop a cosplay conference in Italy.
During his free time, Dario is an avid gamer and artist. He also enjoys manga, American comics, cooking Italian cuisine, going to the gym, and Dungeons & Dragons.
