I started cosplaying in October 2010 and only cosplay characters I feel some sort of connection to. If their look is interesting to me and I can relate to them in some way, or recognise some element of my own personality in them, chances are I'll cosplay them.
So far my cosplays have been from anime, manga and videogames - not through any deliberate choice, but because I just seem to find the characters more interesting. That said there are one or two comic book and TV characters I wouldn't say no to cosplaying some day...
I love meeting new cosplayers and enjoy doing photoshoots with people who are cosplaying from the same thing as me, so if you're interested in getting some snaps together, do let me know!
