Never cosplayed... Help!
Hello everyone,

I'm Amanda! I've never cosplayed before, but I've thought about it soooo many times. I've always been a bit scared to and never really had a lot of confidence but this year I've decided to take action! I'm looking for help and advice and some friendly faces to look for at cons.

I'm from Aberdeen in Scotland ( just moved here) and don't know if there's anyone in this area who cosplays.

Any advice on where to get decent good value wigs and things. And elf ears and the best way to attach them.

Thank you!

Hi and welcome to the world of cosplay and to welcome to cosplay island. If you ever need advice or help everyone on this site will help.
I'm sure that there are quite a few cosplayers on here that are based in scotland.

For wigs I like to get mine from coscraft or ebay, I can't really offer any help when it comes to elf ears though.

Hi and welcome to CosplayIsland!

Firstly, we've all been there, so don't worry! There are tons of cosplayers in Scotland and a quick look on facebook will find you groups of them already set up ^_^ Plus you get Auchinawa and other nice conventions too!

As for wigs, ebay or Coscraft (google it) are the best places IMO.

Elf ears? Best place is LARP websites. I've used them for several costumes. To attach them you put a small bit of spirit gum inside them (it's like eyelash glue) and put it over the tops of your ears. It's comfy enough you'll forget they're even there!

Anything else, feel free to post ^_^
