In less than two weeks from now, the Texas Showdown Championships 2014 event will take place here in Houston, Tx. Featuring many of the top players from the state and surrounding areas, competitions will be held for 17 of the most popular fighting games in the gaming community. Also featured will be anime and gaming vendors and some of the most popular cosplayers from Houston. Among them will be the sisters of Su&Dom Cosplay. I had a chance to catch up with them this past Friday and asked them a few questions about themselves and the event.
Examiner: SuWan, this is your second appearance at Texas Showdown, how was your experience last year?
SuWan: It was really fun, the crowd was very enthusiastic. Even when I was on stream, the viewers were all so into the event. I was shocked at seeing international players at the event, and seeing the amount of fans there were outside of the event.
