I was 13 when I cosplayed as Misty at a Pokemon convention. It was a closet cosplay that was assembled the night before, so I was missing some items, like red suspenders and the red hair. I did, however, make her red bag, and my friend let me borrow her Togepi.
The only things I'd have done differently would have been to at least get the suspenders and dye my hair.
Afterwards, a different friend that I had went with started calling me Misty, and I liked it, so it became a nickname for a few years.
Edit: I had never even heard of the word "cosplay" at that time.
