I can't even remember when I first started cosplaying but it was yeaaaaars ago! And it all started with Naruto.. my first cosplay was Uchiha Itachi and I used my own hair and bought the cosplay from ebay and didn't do anything to improve it before I wore it. EMBARRASSING ~. But I've moved on from then, now I always use wigs I've cut and styled myself and make my own costumes now when it is possible (though I still suck at sewing!) I'm also trying to be more creative with the characters I cosplay, and not be scared to do something just because I'm scared of not being recognised. Uh, that's about all I can say so far!
