Hey everyone I’m PinkCherry Cosplay! I’m just your small town everyday cosplayer from Fayetteville, AR who’s been playing dress-up for over 10 years, during my freshman year of high school, and I’ve been going ever since! I’m currently the leader of a Sailor Moon cosplay group out of Arkansas called “Galaxy Guardians AR,” and I’m also currently the editor-in-chief for an up and coming Cosplay magazine, called Cosplay Art & Photography. Some of my cosplays include Todoroki Shouto from My Hero Academia, Maki Nishikino from Love Live!, and Keith from Voltron.
