Ammy what an amazing question!
erm for me....well I am the same as Moonlilly it wasnt my first character I cosplayed but I suppose when I was a kid I really wanted to dress as Superman or Green Lantern XD but my first one I dove into was Vampire Hunter D but I would say it was Superhero/Star Wars stuff before anime but if you have to say anime its D XD

No character got me into cosplay, I can't even remember how I found out about cosplay.
I went to my first convention in '04 (the first Amecon), and I decided that I had to cosplay for it. It just seemed like something I had to do and I decided to do my favourite character (Sailor Mercury). I can't really say that a character got me into cosplay, it just seemed like something I should do if I was going to a con and feel in love with it....

Mine was Yuna from FFX/X-2. I just thought it must be fun to have all those dresspheres, and some of them did look really really nice!

Mine was back in the day when ffx had just came out
I really waned to cosplay Yuna
i think it was the hole concept of being in a fantasy land and to be a leading lady in something very important what sorta inspired me.

Mine soooo had to be Tidus from Final Fantasy X.
He was my idle for some reason when I was younger - and I got to replay the game again a couple of days ago, and totally revitalised my love for the character.
But since I was really young at the time I decided to wait until I was older. So I'm doing it now. c: <3

...and the realisation that going to Expo without a cosplay makes you the outcast citizen. It's like a completely different event.

My first cosplay was Freya from Chobits, so I guess that's what started it all off for me
Though as I think about it, I've always wanted to dress as Alice from Alice in Wonderland sonce i was a kid (I think I did once) and I used to look forward to World Book Day so I could dress up for school (I've been Belle, Magrat from Wyrd Sisters, Mildred Hubble and someone else who I cant remember)
Maybe I've been a cosplayer all my life and never realised XD

I would love to say Nami -hence the username- But amazingly although she was my 1st it was Sailor Moon that started it all off xD
When i was younger id pretend i was the characters with friends 8'D and I always wanted to dressup as them xD

Trowa from Gundam Wing; I got bored and styled my hair like him, I didn't actually -know- about cosplay at the time, but it kinda all stemmed from there :3

I'd say Jill Valentine, because I almost dressed in her RE3 outfit for Haloween a few years back and ever since then I've been looking for an excuse to do her outfit.
But my frist cosplay was Nana Osaki from NANA (not counting when I dressed as Scully for a 'dress as your hero' day in primary school...my dad wouldn't let me dress as Lara Croft lol). It wasn't a very good one; it was very last-minute and I realised when it was too late that I forgot to trim the wig, so it was a little long. But I had fun, someone recognised the costume, asked for a pic and said I looked good (I so did not).

Kakashi Hatake. Although that was a few years ago and it was terrible!
Very, very terrible.

Ash Ketchum, probably. I can remember being 7/8 or whatever and thinking that dressing like Ash would turn me into a Pokémon trainer. I'm always going to blame my mum for not letting me buy his hat, because that's why I'm not a trainer now >_>
10/11 years later... and I'm cosplaying Gary. Oh life.

I started late into cosplay. i was a fan of so meny things growing up and i did'nt now cosplay existed and had no friends who were into that or the samethings as me but the past few years i've met people who are and puched me to do it.
so i have to say that Snow Villies from ff13 because i found some things in him that are in me plus the facted that we are both the same size in hight and billed which people have pointed out.

Kuja from Final Fantasy IX~ I seriously have sketches from years ago detailing what pattern shapes I should use, what details there are to the outfit and how I wanted the skirt and thong to appear.
I've been through a good few version of the original because I want to get him just right. He's the only character I'm very willing to do ALL versions of. Next will be Amano version which I hope to do for next year at some point x3

Loving all this nostalgia!
I always wanted to be Storm because I think she is the most amazing Marvel character there is but I just don't think I could do her justice. Rogue's her best friend in the cartoon series though so I figured I could settle with being the best friend of someone awesome

Maka from Soul Eater.
Soul Eater was one of the first animes I ever watched for serious, I didn't even really KNOW what cosplay was, but I found out eventually and I visited the Telford expo cosplaying as Maka, and I haven't stopped since then. :3

The first costume I ever did I didn't really do because I loved the character, but more because I just wanted to cosplay and it looked easy...^^;
The character that really got me into it to begin with was probably Haruhi Suzumiya. I had so much fun making the costume with my mum, and then wearing it to my first expo. I don't think I could ever part with that costume!
The character that probably kept me going was CLAMP's Sakura...or just CLAMP's character/costume designs in general. They're so pretty, I want to make them!

she's always been an inspiration to me so I decided that Tomb Raider Anniversary would be my first handmade costume was a disaster but I'm sure many people's first cosplays were! xD
