What Got You Into Cosplay?
2 things I took my husband to meet his favorite martial artist at a comic con and was severely underdressed and everyone kept thinking I was the Black Canary because I had blonde hair and all black. Which got me curious. Then in 2018 I always wanted to dress up as Shehulk so I painted my whole body and the rest is history.
