Tell us an odd fact about yourself! I like to try to match my socks to my cosplays. I love socks and I have a bunch of Marvel ones that I try to theme to when I’m wearing different costumes, like Black Widow or SHIELD when I’m Black Widow or Captain America when I’m wearing Bucky. I need to get some Star Wars and WWE ones!
