As long as I can imagine I love dressing up. I loved strolling trough my granny's attic and I wore her insane dresses from the past. When I grew up, I gave up dressing up for carnival and never celebrated one single helloween.
Cosplay is very similar, but you have to wear costumes and fashion accessories that represent a specific character. Favorite sources are manga and anime, comic books and cartoons, video games, and live-action films. It is also a significant aspect of popular culture in Japan. I never did it but I knew one day it will be my day. I'm going to visit a manga and comic convention next week, but I actually didn't intend to dress up as a manga character for that event. When I woke up this saturday, I had that idea that one dress I already own would be perfect for a Princess Neptune cosplay. She's my fave character from Sailor Moon and I love her turquoise hair and the fact that her weapon is an art nouveau vintage mirror, haha ;)
So here we go. I bought a wig, a replica of her mirror and some insane shoes on Asos. And - for sure - a vintage handbag from the 20s that I love!
