I started cosplay in October 2007, after attending Midlands MCM Expo in the February of that year and seeing all those people in brilliant costumes. I, however, was not very good at it. I'm still not brilliant but I like to think that I'm at least improving. I enjoy cosplay for the craft and creativity involved, the new skills picked up upon the way and the terrific fun it is to wear the completed costumes.
