How I Met Your Father: the one with cosplay lifestyle

Kids, I didn’t choose the cosplay life, it chose me.

By now, you know the family lore: Your geeky grandpa met your creative Nan and when they found out they were expecting me, they worked together on creating a kickass Superbaby suit that I, your auntie Sam and countless future generations of bambinos would wear.
