What got you into cosplay?
Truthfully? From the very first moment I knew what cosplay was, I wanted to try it. However, I was always this meek and timid little girl who never would try it, for fear of being judged poorly. As the years went on, something kept pushing me. Then, my Junior year of high school arrived, and I met the people who would change my life forever.
I won't say their names, but they brought me out of my shell. Getting me to do things I'd never done before, I started to wonder why. Then I realized. They're my friends, and they wanted what was best for me, knowing full well that a timid girl is not one who would get far in the real world when the time came. Looking back on old photos, I realized something else. They are the ones who got me to smile. They've been there for me, and I'm thankful.
o_o;; Kinda ranted there and went kinda sentimental. Sorry about that. Back to the subject... so that year we decided to cosplay together at Anime Expo 2010. It was something new for most of us, and I'll admit, I wasn't expecting the fun that ensued. Together, we did something I'll never forget.
What was your first costume and why?
My first costume(when I actually knew what cosplay was) happened to be a part of a group cosplay. I was Zexion, from Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories.
We all wanted something easy, and Organization XIII seemed the way to go for a first cosplay.
What is your favorite costume and why?
Do you have a dream costume you'd like to make?
