The Theme is, "Your First Otaku Moment!" draw or Cosplay your first moment becoming a fan of something.  We all know what it means to be a Fan of something that we find awesome, moving, or just really creative.  Anime Fans especially, are very dedicated Fans, but at first we all started out unsuspectingly.  So in other words, draw yourself or draw or cosplay a character to represent yourself!  
SO!  We want you to capture the moment that you first became a Fan of something, by drawing or portraying it through Cosplay.  Either you're raised loving all things considered Nerdy and EPIC, or you find it along the way.  We want you to draw or cosplay your personal moment of Otakudom!   Have fun!  

For me, it was a random day my Brother had me go downstairs to watch a little thing called Fullmetal Alchemist. ^_~

Have fun!!

Also, I feel kind of sad. I'm wanting to enter the cosplay category, but I'm noticing some of these entries have multiple pictures put together to form one. I have no idea how to do that. I'm practically computer illiterate as far as programs go, and I don't have the capacity to run any special programs. I fear I'm at a disadvantage. D:

This is my Entry.
Before I ever watched Dragon Ball, I always thought that the Art in Chrono Trigger was awesome. When I seen Dragon Ball, I realized that it was by the same artist. Who can't recognize Akira Toriyama's style? I always thought his art style was so unique and cool. Chrono Trigger and Dragon Ball (and Dragon Ball Z) was the first time I realized, I like this type of art and I wanted to be able to draw it. Since then, drawing anime, watching it, and playing various anime style games has been a passion of mine. Anyway, Hope you guys like the art work.

The first otaku moment I have had was when I discoverd OHSHC.
My cousin saw this thing on Netflix and saw Ouran.
Cousin: Hey you wanna watch this?
Me: What?
COusin: *starts the anime and opening starts*
Me: OH THIS IS YAOI!!!!
Cousin: *sees Haruhi* Is tht a guy or girl?
Me: KNowing the things you choose for anime, it's probably a guy/
Both: *finally figures out Haruhi is actually a girl when Tamaki found out* OHHH!!!!! LETS'S WATCH MORE!!!

My cousin and I became fangirls of the Host Club. Now my own Otaku moment.

Vampire Knight came out as an anime, I never read the manga, I only saw my cousin read it but that was about it. I saw it at Rainbow Video(the renting place in my neighborhood with THOUSANDS of anime). And rented it.
Me: *watches first episode and hears the fangirls when the Night Class comes out* Is this like Ouran?
*See's Yuki* Hmmmm, she seems...sorta.....dumb.
*See's Kaname* Hmmm, I don't trust him. I can never trust guys like him.
*See's Zero* WAHOO!!!!!! WHY AM I FANGIRLING?!?
*Watches more* I LOVE THIS!!!!
My Cousin: That's so boring.
Me: SHUT UP!!!!! YOU KNOW NOTHING!!!!!! ZERO'S AMAZING!!!!!
Cousin: I didn't say anything about him.
Me: He still is.
That was my otaku, fangirl moment. XD

We need a cosplay showing your first moment though, like when you first found it for instance. ^_^ *Points to other entry as reference, for what I mean*

Hahaha good thing I looked at this. XD I'm a prize artist. :bucktooth: I suppose I would have been informed anyways, but it's still good to know these things, ne~? :aww:

and instead of drawing something for this contest, I'll give a little story! Considering the first time I was a fan of something, it led to me being the artist I am today. :) When I was fifteen, my family spent summer vacation at my mom's uncle's trailer and camped outside it (the point of that, I will never know haha). Well, at that point, the only music I listened to was Veggie Tales. :ohmygod: The first night we were there, my walkman (yes, this was back in the day! haha!) ran out of battery and I couldn't sleep (I'm not fond of bug noises). My sister let me borrow hers just to get me to shut up and the CD she had in it was, I think, Green Day's American Idiot. This was the first time I'd listened to something other than what I was used to and I liked it. For years after that, actually, I would listen to that Green Day CD to fall asleep. :O_o: Anyways, I never really became a huge fan of Green Day (never bought a CD for myself to this day) BUT! It sparked an interest in me and I started borrowing all of my sister's CDs and the day that I found Josh Groban Live at the Greek is a day that changed my life haha! I listened to it for the rest of vacation and put it on my computer as soon as we got home. If you know me, you know I've been a huge Grobanite ever since (OMG NEW ALBUM COMING OUT!). Well, later that summer, I was sitting at home bored and listening to Josh Groban, when I just up and decided to draw the cover of his debut CD. I'm still rather proud of it for it being my first portrait! I have it in my gallery here: [link] Now of course this was before I had sketch paper and even a good pencil so it is washed out and scratchy, but I was really proud of this drawing. Ever since, I started drawing portraits of actors and singers I liked, and now look where I am. :D So yeah, first fandom: Josh Groban. ;) Don't know where I would be without him. Probably taking care of horses or something (which would be totally awesome, don't get me wrong). But the friends I've made through drawing and fellow Grobanites, led me to anime, which led me ultimately to pursuing art as a career. I will forever be a loyal Grobanite and may the Lord smack me upside the head if I ever forget it. ;p

Lol. Mine was when a friend of mine brought Kingdom Hearts to school in 2nd grade. X3 I asked to read it and got sucked in. I had to argue with him to get him to let me keep the book overnight to finish it.

As long as we're not only going by anime, I think the depths of my otaku-ism can be traced back to a time when I was about seven or eight. At seven I started watching old repeats of Doctor Who. I do recall getting quite involved in it and telling my class that it was my favourite TV show. I'd also seen the first couple of Harry Potters, another obsession that was soon to grow into something more.
At eight I read all of the available HP books as well as the Hobbit. This year heralded my introduction to the Lord of the Rings, being the year that the Return of the King was released. I'd already watched Fellowship and Two Towers and enjoyed acting out parts of the movies with my friends. I am eternally grateful for my parents deciding it was alright to take an eight-year-old girl to see a three hour, M-rated fantasy epic. This particular obsession has taken me through to the release of the Hobbit, about to start my final year at school.
Also deserving of a mention is Star Wars. I do not recall the first time I watched it. It's just something that's been around my whole life.
So here I am, 17 next month, never having had a boyfriend, but a proud nerd through and through.

I gotta say, my friend had showed me a few clips from FMA and I thought it kinda looked stupid (so did my other friend) but then I was bored one night and I remembered about and how she was constantly bugging me about how much I would love it so I watched the first episode of the 2003 series... I was hooked. Then came Brotherhood... that resulted in FMA being rated my number 1 anime.

Then for video games... Well I grew up watching my sister play Zelda Ocarina of Time so I kinda started playing those games. Every time I figured out a really hard puzzle I would automatically think "how did my brain manage that!?". Then on Christmas day... I got... Assassin's Creed 2! After playing for 1 hour I loved the game and I got my sister hooked too. Success.
