I've always loved theatre and costumes, but first got interested in cosplay when my parents asked me to chaperone my younger sister to a Con and she insisted we all get dressed up. I originally did easy costumes cobbled together from bits and pieces I bought at charity shops (e.g. Misa - white shirt, black skirt, long socks and shoes all bought from eBay) or bought custom-made from eBay, but in the last few years I've started making my own. My biggest achievement thus far has to be my light-up Gantz costume, which I made entirely from scratch (bar the catsuit). This year, I'm going to give props a go as well - I like to set myself a challenge!
