My first cosplay... ♥
I have all sorts of good memories linked to Ash. It was my first step into the world of cosplay and conventions, that gave me many friends and good times. I will always remember the reaction from people who saw my group and I coming into the con center for the first time... :')
This wasn't perfect, of course (like I didn't know I could bind, at the time...!), but I think it shows that we were doing it for fun. Today, I feel like the cosplay world is very competitive, and everyone really wants to challenge themselves (and sometimes others too...). I want to keep close to the feelings I had when I was being Ash. Just having fun with my friends. And doing plenty of silly stuff that keeps my heart young.
My costume was made by my mom, Vilya0 and myself.
Badges and pokéballs were made by Vilya0. vilya0.deviantart.com
