How and when did you get into cosplay?
I have always loved dressing up for Halloween, But I never knew of cosplay until my junior year of Highschool and my friend showed me photos of my favorite show and I thought it was going to be a movie and then I realize they are dressing up and I wanted to do it, But I didn't get to until late 2013, when I went to my first Convention StockTonCon 2014
I want to show everyone, How fun and amazing cosplaying are and it can be cheap! And there is nothing wrong with buying your costumes, I make and buy my costumes. I cosplay from Disney, DC Comics and Horror Etc. I am a huge fan of adding SFX Makeup into my cosplays.
