[Insert Life Here]
First cosplayed when I was 7 as a Cybus Cyberman at a Doctor Who Convention. Started getting more into it around 16 after really wanting to do a Scarecrow costume. Found a local convention, made a costume, went to convention. Costume fell apart.Now I try and make as many cosplays as I can afford (my preferred method is 'plain-clothes cosplay', cosplaying characters who wear relatively normal clothes, which I can make by adjusting shop-bought clothing.
