Back in 2006 at Anime Expo (when it was still in wonderful Anaheim), I crossplayed Gold Saint Virgo Shaka (Saint Seiya)...it was my second time cosplaying, but my first time crossplaying and making faux armor! While walking through the mostly empty far end of the convention center lobby (it was later in the evening, so the vendor hall was already closed), a random guy ran towards me, suddenly dropped to his knees and shouted "I love you! Will you marry me?" I was stunned and surprised, so I just kind of stood there and stammered for a moment. I finally managed a "Thank you!" at which point the guy and his buddy happily scampered away. To this day I have no idea if he was proposing to my costume, the character I was crossplaying or me!
Preserving old-school tokusatsu...one cosplay at a time.
