I'm Bossy Otaku of 'The Otaku Trioka' Cosplay Group, which I founded alongside 2 others. We've been cosplaying together since 2007, when we met at a friend's costume party. 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 The Trioka's Cosplays at the highest level we could manage, and I am now in the process of working towards competition standards. My greatest acheivement so far has been to have at least one person say about my cosplay "that's the best *insert character name here* i've ever seen" at every Expo I attend. Seeing how my costume can make someone happy makes me happy.
I'm currently writing a blog on cosplay make-up, with hopefully useful tips and tutorials for others to take advantage of, and taking commissions.
