#tbt to my last time wearing my very first cosplay ever 😱 Mana-sama from visual kei band Malice Mizer, video "Shiroi hada no kuruu ai to kanashimi no rondo". I started making this dress in high school and finished it 5 years later, and 2 years after that finally got the wig and a proper photo shoot.
I never did get to wear it out in it's final form, by this time the dress no longer zipped up all the way. I got to meet Mana himself in this dress, and also as my very first cosplay I guess you could say it was a significant costume for me.
Since I'm mostly known now as a Star Wars cosplayer, I thought it'd be fun to share my background with the goth/drag/visual kei scene, and maybe that would explain a bit why I pick to cosplay the characters or looks that I do 😊💕💄🕷🌹🎸🎶
