[20:43] So basically it cost my volunteers is a pretty much dedicated to going around two.
I love places like the children's hospital and they do a lot of work.
Yo can you start the show.
And we dress up the characters and just kind of the way that you would,
you seem like a princess party company or super heroes it's me appear at events and then just,
you know that some through cosplay read.
We do allow pets away and we um wishes menu like this time last year.
Excellent okay just kinda like reach out to more places but you know we put forward.
Add banana pepper um.

[21:47] Leaving already doing a that's it so i'll see what i ask you a question because you all talked about different characters you do what.
Character a flash outfit has been your most challenging weather it was the time to put it together or wearing it or just.
Does your hotel will be great and i was hey what's a good a number from sofia i want the number asking for a stroke.

[22:20] I was wondering what you said that who difficult about melissa.
I can only do apple pay as a princess makeup in about forty minutes,
alexis makeup takes me about an hour and a half classic website what do the live action to the classic so i got a greeting.
Online browsing the yellow eyes and i love it when people ask because i have yellow contacts i love when people ask what he realized and yes i walk away,
what flights are you asking me if my yellow eyes real really
i'm sorry i got little sarcastic so i had no hour and a half putting on makeup you deserve that is a good agent character is truly it is
Actually is super hot i can only wear it for about an hour or cinemax ulad kwarto that where it feeling the heat like outside and ask evening air conditioning,
should i take two hours max not question can i get um,
i'll be migrated also overheat what do you love the reactions i get when i make eye contact with people when they see,
the follow up together on the have been blowing staff an everything smh how old that wants fine.

[23:43] That's the way from danielle how are you.
Probably else can you do that when i cosplay tulsa ugh i had i been through five different addresses and three different wigs,
i just because the maintenance for her costumes is so high because of all the sequins on the bodice that
what's like after like a few where's the start falling off you'll eventually have to replace the whole thing
how does it feel that good a.

[24:22] I like bradley but it's still difficult to maintain the braid ankle is julio there the cape the cape is also when i had my keep it was six meters long.
So if we get transfered idk if it didn't hold it if it ever get
on the other hand they just don't know why that's like,
really doing what you love to six cake and then also just being an
else's character was really a challenge for me because i'm.
I'm a very bubbly person and this is so like calm and reserved,
and it was so i love being outside what was it like this is not who i cannot call not reserved your dancing over the wall crazy so.

[25:13] Hi this is.
There is no negative there's nobody should be in here that would be a great help.
Yeah that's how it yet lol the definitely has been my most challenging class i've ever done,
wow ok amber your kind of god who loved them everyone that girl.
Oh no no lol ok i'm sorry i didn't know what man u like outside things to prosper and i would a don't know where.

[26:45] In this heat it does not seem what i mean like in consideration all of my costumes have been relatively.
