I've been into anime and manga for about four years now and finally late 2010 I made friends with someone else who was into anime and manga - more even than I was. Cheetos introduced me to cosplaying with Midlands expo and now, I am part of a world where fairies and demons, ponies and schoolgirls, skip side by side through exhibition halls, fields and hotels <3
xD So anyway, so far I've only been to Midlands and October London MCM. After a slight disaster the night before Midlands, a Mightyena gijinka was made - I didn't want to enter my first expo nakedly normal! For October expo I spent part of the Friday and the Sunday as Misty from the original Pokemon anime, and the Saturday as Shizuma Hanazono, who helped me to discover how much cosplaying hurts your wallet. Ah well. I loved Shizuma and am looking forward to reusing her :) My intention is to rewear her when I start on the cons in 2012 ;)
So now I've got into it, I'm kinda hooked. Bring it on!
