I am unsure as to exactly what got me first interest in cosplay. For my first convention, back in 2002, I dressed up in a sailor girl outfit. I wouldn't truly call that my first cosplay but I must have been interested in it before then to actually dress in a sailor outfit in the first place. My first proper cosplay was at AmeCon 2006, dressed up as Rin, the Al Bhed merchant from Final Fantasy X. Its just evolved from there, and with any slight changes in interest have my ideas changed with. Tried everything from standard cosplays such as Final Fantasy and Pokemon, to some more unusual and crazy ideas from other eastern influences (such as from the Chinese story Lu Ding Ji).
