I got into cosplay a bit later than most… 28 years old. I always was into Halloween my whole life, and as I got older I tended to keep upping myself from the previous year. Eventually I went way overboard and put way to much money and time into a costume just to wear it for that one Halloween. A friend mentioned to me that there are conventions for fans of video games and other “geek stuff” that I could probably wear it to and fit right it. I gave it a try at Megacon 2006 and have not stopped.
