Cosplay was a natural segue from my love of being in drama and dance when I was younger, and my love of comics. When I attended my first comic convention and realized people dressed up as their favorite characters, I knew I had to do it. The step to charity cosplay was a short step-I have always given back in some way, either donating my time or working for not for profits. In discovering there was a niche for costumed charity work, I couldn’t resist. Bringing smiles, hope and laughter to children and adults alike? Sign me up! The best thing we all can do is give, in some way, big or small. So here I am.
