These two points leaded my life to what it is today.
In the Age of about 18- 20 i got into my first contact with latex and leather (no, not what you think now:-)) and i started to create my first batman costume. Sure, it looked catastrophically, BUT... I had my first costume and i was soo proud of it.
A few years later, it was february in 2005, the hobby moved into the background, a friend of mine showed me a internet-forum, where people were talking about batman, superman, predator, starwars ect.... That was the start point of my second carrier in creating and wearing costumes. Still now i am a rookie, but i learned a lot meanwhile.
I found new friends, many experiences and lost a lot of money ;-) Because this hobby is very expensive, but it makes me happy.
From that day of course my expactations and wihes growed up, and so i got more and more costumes. A good friend took me to Freddy Kruger from the movies A nightmare on elmstreet, another friend showed me the tv- series Babylon 5, of which now i want to create the one or the other costume, too.
