I cosplay because I like making stuff, and I'm learning much trough the making of costumes . I like making them as accurate as possible as well.

Besides that, I got a nice amount of friends trough cosplay and I go to conventions mainly to see them, all the extra activities and the cosplaying is just a very very nice extra.

I love the joy and thrill of the creative effort to make a costume. I also like doing my own twist besides screen accuracy. I like doing it so much that I am taking college classes specifically to learns skills that I can apply in this hobby.

(It's like this: Cosplay is to me is what swimming is to Haruka Nanase, except I don't strip at the sight of fabric. XD) Cosplay lets me be in someone else's shoes for a while- in character, outgoing, flashy- which I don't normally do on my own. It's a creative outlet. Plus, I love to meet others with the same interests/fandoms. :P

I love making and wearing costumes of any kind. I'm always looking for excuses to do it (and don't want to just run around costumed by myself) so conventions that I can go to for that exact purpose are right up my alley.

Good question. I honestly don't really know. When I was little, I always used to like playing pretend- Halloween was always one pf my favorite holidays... But I honestly really don't know why I got it into it.

I guess the fact of the matter is, I just like to play dress up. XD It's developed more since then, of course. Now I actually like the challenge of making things - it's a way to channel creative energy as well as deal with some stress relief.

While I'm still not entirely sure of my own reasoning for liking this hobby, it makes me happy. In the grand scheme of things, that's all that matters.

Its the challenge. Creatively applying mechanical engineering, analytically solving problems, and looking for ways to push the boundaries further. Also setting high long term goals, some of which I've achieved already, and the adventure along the way.
