Hi there everybody!
Another newbie to cosplay here ... although a wisened old affable geek all the same! Like many I'm sure, I've often admired cosplay from afar never knowing quite how to begin a foray into exploring it more. Alas, two great friends of mine went out and did Comic Con not long ago and their stories and encouragement piqued my interests once again! I'm here looking for new likeminded and similarly aged friends (very inspired by Aqua_0's thread and seeing the number of lovely replies.) I work in the NHS and have recently moved out to the West Country for a new post. I've been a gamer/fanboy for as many years as I can remember (both old school and new releases - ex-WoW, GW2, SWTOR ... etc.) ... not new to anime but only dip my toe into their ethereal waters once in a while. Anyway ... looking forward to getting to know you all.
