Why Escaflowne Cosplay?: At last year's Anime Expo, I noticed that all of the people with really good costumes would get asked for pictures. I also noticed that the people with insanely good costumes would not only get asked for pictures, but, when they were having their pictures taken, other people would also join in to take pictures of the costume. I want to receive so much recognition, I won't be able to move because so many people are taking my picture.
