I think I got interested in cosplay after yet another nerding sleepover with my friends. A night of anime and manga madness. Great fun! Anyway, I just thought in my head, I wish I was '_______' (can't remember which character *embarassing*) but from then I went and looked at a few favourite anime and was like... I could do that.
My first Cosplay? Kaoru (Ouran High School Host Club) @ MCM London - May 2009
