Introduction from a Sailor Moon Fan in the South
Hi-ya! Pleased ta meet you. My name is Coral. I know of cosplay but never have given it a go, known anyone that did it, or know anyone interested, for that matter! However, every time I see someone dressed up all pretty and enjoying themselves I think - wow, how fun, I really want to do that, too! Frankly, though, I'd have no idea how to go about it. I don't know much about the anime scene here and don't even know anybody who remembers the stuff I've seen, like Sailor Moon and Ranma 1/2, as more than a fond childhood memory! And maybe I'm just too old for this anyway and missed my golden window of opportunity.

But! I feel inspired and motivated and thought, what the heck, let's see if I can't make this a reality, anyway. Maybe there are some fans in this sleepy little suburb after all (anyone out there know Egham of Greater London? Hah!). Even if not, there is the whole of the British isles out there, no?

Anyway, it's fantastic to be here. I hope I can get to know lots of you real soon!

Howdy!

I saw your post on the SM community on ElJay so thought I'd poke you here too!

As I said I'm Silver, and welcome to CosplayIsland.

Don't worry about never cosplaying before, we all have to start somewhere. Its great that you want to give it a go, and there shouldn't be anything to stop you. You won't look out of place at an Expo or a Con if you're in a Sailor Moon cosplay or Ranma 1/2!

Haha... Sailor Moon is as popular as ever I think. There are a lot of people on here who cosplay from it (myself included. Mako-chan, at your service!) and we're arranging a massive Eternal group (as I said on LJ).

I'm rambling now, but its always nice to have a new face around! And don't be scared to ask for some advice if you want. :]

~Silver

Welcome! You should definitely give cosplaying a go! What conventions do you attend? London is a great place to be as Expo is right there. I'm from London myself and have been cosplaying for...wow, four years now!

Indeed! Sailor moon and old school stuff is still super popular around here. *Is the Saturn of said group 8D*

Aha! I go to Royal Holloway so I know Egham very well! What a sweet, quaint...incredibly BORING...town.

Anyways this is a great place to start finding out about cosplay, there's a list of events here that you might want to look into, also dont be afraid to ask anything - we're a friendly group! XD

Hello and welcome! Although I'm from the States I have enjoyed being a part of a SM cosplay group in the UK. I am either in Usagi/Sailor Moon or Hotaru/Sailor Saturn cosplays. My group, Forever Bright Myu, will be performing at May Expo so when you are blinded by the super shiny Sera Myu cosplays please come say hello! We'd love to meet you!!

You joking? That's my university, as well! I'm a second year at Holloway at the moment. Wow - small world! It'd be a laugh if I saw you around campus and just never clicked that there was another Sailor Moon fan waltzing around under my radar.

What?! CREEPY. XD What are you studying? (I'm english and creative writing myself.) Do you go to the anime club? I've only been a few times, but my friend got president so next year I kinda have an obligation to go more. I think you would have known if you saw me because I carry a Saiyuki bag all the time! XD

I'm on History and IR with Spanish - that might be why I haven't crossed you before! And I'm not part of the club, personally. If you want honesty I didn't even know it exists! I had a go around the SU during Fresher's Week but hadn't seen a booth :O Ew, the things you just never know about. I feel so uninformed! Madness, really. I'm so keeping my eye out for you now.

Welcome, I hope you have fun here =D

Hi Coral, welcome to Cos Island.

Sailor Moon is popular as ever. You must come to the London Expo at the end of this month. Time is getting short to get a costume ready -you'll have to work fast. Being at Expo without a costume can leave you feeling like you're missing out of the party even though you're there. So I hope ya manage to get a costume done even if it's just thrown together.
