I admired cosplay ever since my first convention but didn't officially start cosplaying until Fanime 2007. My very first cosplay I wore was Kairi from Kingdom Hearts II. My very first cosplays to sew myself was Yuna Braska's gunner and songstress outfits which I wore at Fanime 2009. I've been self teaching myself to sew and will be taking college fashion courses soon to help improve. I'm one of the members of the BakaBakaRangorz (bakabakarangorz.deviantart.com) and we've won a few awards for our cosplays and performances.
