I originally got into cosplay because of, you guessed it, the internet. I'd wanted to attend a convention from the age of 16 but didn't actually get the chance until I was 18, Amecon 2006 and it was brilliant!
What i love about cosplay is immersing myself in a genre or character i love and admire, because doesn't everyone want to dress up as their favorite thing once in a while. I also love a challenge, I particularly like cosplaying male characters, the make up is always SO much fun to do.
