I got into cosplay after going into hospital for spinal surgery (scoliosis, major points if you know what that is)! I met a girl who lived nearby who had the same operation in the same ward and we kept in touch; I met her group of friends and in there discovered MrsChumphy who was also an avid anime/manga fan. We found out about MCM back in 2006, went to that (I borrowed her Princess Mononoke cosplay) and since then it's only got worse (in my family's opinion)/better.
