I reached back a little further than 5 years 😉 1997-2005- but in reverse… oldest last… and you may be lucky and I may share photos of my really earliest costumes… Grizabella/Griddlebone, “wishing” dress interpretation and Poison Ivy. And maybe All Good Warrior Princesses Go to Heaven (which was actually based on the costume I was going to use for my sportsfighting character.. Neimhaille).
Michaela, you were just born pro at costuming.
No, just have a few decades of obsession! But the hardcore studying (obsessing) did start freakishly early! I did a costume history essay for 3rd Form drama!!! (umm, hang on… 8th year?)
