I first heard about Cosplay at the start of 2007 which was when I saw my first anime, I loved the look of it but never thought i'd do it myself. Then when I decided to go to my first expo thought I may as well go in cosplay and so I did. Costume wasn't all that tbh lool but I had such a great time it didn't really matter =) Ive been cosplaying ever since! I have cosplay to thank for many amazing memories and loads of crazy ass people who I just couldn't live without XD
I mostly cosplay as characters from Video Games such as Final Fantasy and Anime characters =) I normally only ever cosplay as someone that I love ^^ I don't see the point in cosplaying as someone you know nothing about...its not as fun in my opinion and I have to have that love to inspire me to make the costume!
I normally make my own costumes now as I prefer to =) though I have bought costumes in the past and if I feel like something is too difficult for me to make I don't mind buying. I deffinetly have nothing against people who choose to buy rather than make as long as your honest about it!! At the end of the day I cosplay for fun and to enjoy doing it with friends ^^ Anything else is just a bonus!
