I was late getting into cosplay, my first real attempt was at Kitacon IV where I attempted Vincent Valentine, however it turned out I was allergic to the wig I wore and subsequently had to take Antihistamines which I had with me luckily which led to me feeling drowsy so I missed the majority of the first day because of it! I've since then been to MCM Manchester but didn't do cosplay for it as I was too low on funds to try anything at the time!! I've always built costumes for halloween and such, in 2010 I built a G1 Optimus Prime which I was so proud of! I was able to run, and dance inside it which was fun! However it was heavy and so hot inside!! I'm currently building a G1 Grimlock costume for Kitacon 2014 which I'm so excited about because he was probably my favourite Transformer of all! I've also decided to rebuild the Optimus costume as well if I have the time to!
