Hi everyone, and welcome to my beginners guide to the Wonderful World of Cosplay. This guide will hopefully get you started when preparing for your first cosplay.
What is Cosplay?
When I talk to people about how much I love cosplay, people generally have no idea what I'm talking about. Cosplay, in its simplest form is dressing up as your favourite character, but it can be so much more. Many cosplayers make their own costumes, which can seem daunting at first but is quite fun. When people cosplay they usually have a date or goal in mind, like a convention or Halloween. Cosplay shows up mostly around sci-fi and fantasy movies/TV, anime and video game fans, but it can be for pretty much anything as long as you're a fan. Cosplay is a great way to meet new people and find people of similar interests, its also a great way to learn new skills such as sewing, sculpting and design.
