WHY I COSPLAY THIS CHARACTER
Out of all of the Tales of series characters, Sophie is probably the one that has had the greatest impact on me. I love using her in combat with her fists and healing magic. I love her curiosity and cuteness in skits and victory scenes. I love her desire to use her power to protect those important to her. I just overall really love Sophie and cosplaying her is always an absolute blast!
