I first got into cosplay when I stumbled on a cosplay skit on youtube when I was searching for Death Note AMV's. My first ever cosplay was L from Death Note as he was my obsession at the time, I cosplayed him on Valentine's Day 2009.
It was a few months after that, about April, that IdiotsInWigs filmed their first video as a group.
Cosplay has helped me in so many ways, it has made me more confident as a person and it has made me feel happy in my own body. I have made so many friends through cosplay including my fiance who I wouldn't have met if it hadn't been for cosplay <3
