I had known of cosplay for a while before I started, but it was the suggestion of a friend who invited me to the 2005 London MCM Expo that actually made me give it a go. I'm drawn to the creative and performance side of cosplay as both spectator and participant, although I have not been a participant for almost 7 years… How time flies!
Might come back to it in 2014... We shall see!
