What got you into cosplay?
In high school I [badly] made a Sailor Jupiter costume for Halloween. A couple years later, a friend mentioned going to a convention. I looked up stuff online and VIOLA, my cosplay life was born. I talked friends into it [they were ALL too willing] and we eventually made our cosplay group The Desert Chikins
What was your first costume and why?
Sailor Jupiter. I love her. still do. Someday I will do that costume again. and DO IT WELL this time.
