Some people take their cosplay a bit too seriously.
We are headed for DragonCon in September, and I am making a Sailor Moon costume for my daughter. Who is 9. Then again, I might be dressed as Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket (my favorite anime/manga), so I guess I can't talk about Mr. Fat Pika here. The schoolgirl outfits are rather expensive, so I may not go all out to be Tohru. I can always be Princess Leia, like I was for Halloween in fourth grade - remember, Eileen? I was the only one who didn't have to use pantyhose to create the sidebuns for the hair.
