I've been dressing up all my life I mean for literally EVERYTHING if it was a normal friends birthday party I'd be in fancy dress for no apparent reason. My mother always made me costumes as a child and taught me as I got older :)
When I reached the age of about 13 I found out about cosplay but didn't do my first one until I was 16 when I went to my second London MCM Expo(Mikuru Asahina), I had gone the previous October BUT I won the tickets last minute and didn't have time to make anything. the reason I hadn't attended anything prior to that was because I thought all conventions happened in America... Dumb i know...
Anyway the first cosplay I did was Mikuru Asahina from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya in May 2012 which I had custom made from China, in October 2012 I did the animated series version of Poison Ivy that I handmade, in May 2013 I did Little My from The Moomins that I handmade and then October 2013 I cosplayed a Silent Hill nurse that I handmade.
May 2014 I'm cosplaying Abby Sciuto from NCIS, I was cosplaying Daenerys from Game of Thrones but the wig failed to fit properly (sobs) and October 2014 I'm cosplaying Tsukiko from The Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat, and in May 2015 I will be cosplaying Rin Kokonoe from Kodomo no Jikan.
Other cosplays I own-
Gasmask monster from Dr. Who, Wednesday Adams, 1950s pin-up fem-Soldier from Team Fortress 2, Felicia from Darkstalkers and 2 outfits of Daenerys from Game of Thrones (blue Grecian dress and desert outfit).
I attend London MCM Expo twice a year and Hyper Japan once a year.
