Cr1ms0nEpsilon

Panel Guest

Hi, my name is Matthew Price! I grew up right here in Abilene, and have been an avid gamer and anime fan for a long time. I love video games, writing, and cosplaying my favorite characters from my favorite games or movies. To my friends I am Deadpool, and I make sure to play him the best I can. I've only been attending cons since last year, with Anime Sekai being my first, but I have many plans to adventure to other cons around the state!

What brings me most excitement about a con is everyone getting to be who they want to be and have fun doing it. The creativity and the imagination that comes to life because of it is perfect. You can find me in Facebook under my name, or cr1ms0nepsilon on Instagram and youtube!
