Hi, I'm Rin-sama!
I'm fairly new at anime/manga cosplay -- my first costume was Sesshoumaru, which I wore at MARCON, the multi-genre convention in Columbus, OH. I just did Ayame and Ibuki for Ohayocon 2005, and I hope to continue with more for upcoming cons. Cosplay is fun, and quite challenging...moreso when I turned my brother into Miroku, because it was the first time I made something for somebody else! It worked out pretty well, though!
I've been a fan of anime/manga since late 2003, when I discovered Inuyasha...then quickly discovered Fruits Basket, Dai-Guard and several other titles...besides those [my current top three], I also like Rurouni Kenshin, Gravitation, Saiyuki, Chobits, Azumanga Daioh, Full Metal Panic, and more. Columbus, Ohio got Anime Network just in time for me to get started in the fandom...how convenient!
