Coming at this from similar timeline & similar TV watching habits; "Speed Racer," "Kimba the White Lion," and then "Robotech;" which my first husband loved; he used to build the models and we had to go to Japantown to get video for him to watch. Fell in love with Yoshitaka Amano's illustrations in the late 80's; but was more on the side of "Historical Cosplay" because of Renaissance Faires and Victorian events and the huge historical costuming community in the SF Bay Area. Attended my first con in Ontario California, in 1986? Costume Con 8; won "Best Individual; Novice" for my second serious costume and first Masquerade entry. Went on to found the local chapter of the International Costumer's Guild; "The Greater Bay Area Costumer's Guild;" which is still going strong 37 years later! Yay! Was a featured artist in the first book to showcase Cosplay; "The Costume Maker's Art" which was nominated for an Hugo award in the early 1990's! Anyway, it is many years later, I am now disabled, but I still teach and make costumes. trying to get a little more visibility in the Cosplay community; since it turns out this is what I've been doing for the last 40+ years!
