I'm Autumn and I hail from New Jersey. I was late to the cosplay party, but I'm glad I came. Way back when I was in high school, I tried to make myself a Hogwarts uniform for the release of the 5th Harry Potter book. Over the years that costume has evolved and gotten better with new pieces and tweaks, and it sort of opened the cosplay door for me. That, and my favorite holiday is Halloween because I love dressing up. So really, it was bound to happen sometime.
