We are inspired by the lovely @auntieanbu!
This auntie gave us the break down of how she got into anime and why!
Before you read peep some of her cosplay below!
Anbu Black Ops Squad Leader from Naruto
Dex from Cannon Busters
“These photos signify why I started cosplaying. I was sitting in the cafeteria at Yomocon in Detroit, MI and in walks this group of gorgeous young black women and men as an Anbu Ops Squad. There are no words to describe the awe and pride I experienced watching them proudly walk in to sit down to eat (because you gotta refuel after a mission, right?). So, as a 56-year-old mother of 3 (I think that makes me a commander, yes?) I did this at BlerDCon 2019, and it was REALLY FUN!!! I was so ridiculously excited and proud to be part of an amazing Blerd community, thank you, my heart is full, and I’ve found…HOME. Love, Sappy Mom
Another fun fact…my child got me started in cosplay! I took them to a con and that was it for me, bitten by the cosplay bug.”
