I've been cosplaying since 2001, when i first heard that my local comic shop was hosting an annual Anime
There was an option of dressing up as any anime character, so i decided to look in my closet for anything
to do, i remembered i had my violet chinese dress, from my senior prom, and i had also bought a cheap black wig
from Jo-anne fabrics, so i decided to cosplay Shampoo, from Ranma 1/2, and thus began my great obsession with cosplay.
I regularly attend the Anime parties at TBS Comics, wearing things i either already had or made
from stuff in my closet.
Then my friends heard about Anime Weekend Atlanta 8, we all planned to attend, I
was determined to go,since it would be my first convention,
so i saved up for a few months, and had enough to go.
