I first started cosplaying when I went to see the Pokemon first movie with my friends. I dressed as Ash Ketchum. Since then I had always wanted to do better and more extravagant cosplay, but never had the chance to do so, or knew where I could wear them.
In 2005 I started attending anime conventions . Seeing all the cosplayers there re-inspired me to do cosplay. However I am not good a sewing so I tend to steer away from costumes that are too extravagant. As my skill levels improve I grow more and more confident, and keep trying new things. I'm hoping that in the future I will be able to make the costumes I long to do, and make them to a refined standard.
