Yes, I like anime and manga, but neither primarily nor exclusively. I like gaming, reading, drawing and, of course, dressing up.
Contrary to what people believe, I actually don't like sewing. I just do it because I like the end product so much.
I started cosplaying with the character No Face from Spirited Away. It was Halloween and it seemed so simple, black cape and a mask. It was easy to do. After that I made Natsuru from Kampfer, and wanted to do more.
My fisrt convention was Kitacon 4, and I was treated a whole lot differently than I normally am elsewhere, as in people actually liked what I was wearing and praised me for it. I had so many photo's taken of me, I felt like a celebrity!
Bottom line, I enjoy it, so I will continue to do it.
