My first anime cosplay! ^o^ Waaaay back in the day. I was actually growing my hair long for a Carmen SanDiego cosplay, but then Sailormoon aired in the US, and I had to cosplay that. (So the Carmen SanDiego costume never came to be. ;_; ) I actually wasn't very fond of Sailor Mars, but my hair was already long and black, so I didn't have to buy a wig. I do like her miko powers though. ^_^ I went back and tried to re-vamp the costume, but never really finished. It may forever stay that way, and permanently retired.
