    Sounds Fun!

    I went to my first gaming con (Magfest, in the DC area) this year, and had a lot of fun, but having not done the research wasn't really expecting a lot of cosplayers...and was quickly proven wrong.  Part of the idea was I thought it would help me meet some cool people, but that...

    I really want to cosplay Shelly from Team Aqua

    because I would kind of look like her if I grew my hair. My only problem is that her outfit is kind of skimpy, and I don't have much confidence in my body. o3o

    Another Thing I Wanna Do!

    I totally love fantasy/sci-fi/geek culture, and have wanted to do the whole costuming thing for, like, ages! I would love to do some sort of totally sexy, barely-there type of thing.
