I've been 'dressing up' since I was little. I'd pretend to be my favourite super hero or a Pokemon! A few years ago I attended my first con and thought 'wow'. I was in normal clothes and felt so out of place! I ended up buying my first wig on the Friday, wearing it with my yukat on the Saturday and Sunday. I had never felt so involved in something that big before. I sort of thought, hey. Other people can make costumes, why shouldn't I? A couple of years, 15more wigs, a sewing machine and too much makeup later, HERE I AM! :D
