I've been cosplaying since 2007. The first MCM Expo we went to, my sister (Mini Otaku) decided that we should cosplay, so we made both of our costumes in a few days and they were, to put it softly, terrible.
Since then I have put in more effort than is probably sensible to keep my costumes of a higher standard. I spent many years making commissions for other cosplayers, and supporting my sister in her sewing journeys.
I am now semi-retired, working on finishing off my target of recreating every one of the outfits from Anastasia when I have time and hoping I'm not too old to wear them when I do.
