normally i pick a character i like the look of or just like so much i want to cosplay as them.

You can buy the costume or if your feeling adventurous you can make your own

Then get a bunch of references and make sketches of them and look at the features and detailing and start to break down the cos in to parts thinking of how to make each bit.

A lot of the time you can get a good idea of how things go together by looking at the inside stitching of any exiting clothing you have.

Hunt down the fabric and parts in fabric stores, hobby stores ebay ect then sew the lot together..

that's a very basic run down of things

do you have any idea of a character you would like to cosplay?

Interesting question! I wrote about it in my English exam the other week :/

Basically cosplaying is an amalgamation of two words- Costume and Play. If you cosplay, you dress up and act as that character- it's like Halloween fancy dress only in a slightly more epic way.

Usually we make our costumes ourselves, but you can also get others to make your costume for you. Pick a character that you would like to dress as and that you feel comfortable wearing the costume of, and then go for it and let loose.

Most people cosplay at conventions or for fancy dress ocassions, but some of us do it for fun all year around too ^^

Sorry I can't be more specific!

what i useually do like what has already been said is choose a character you like and then just look at them very carefully sometimes you can check a character by looking at images of them on google so then you can see them from all angles.

when you finally choose a character you like and have good pics of them you can start to properly think of what material you can use to make it.

the main thing i found is hard is budgeting i found many times i've wanted to do certain cosplays but because i have no money i find it very hard to do it.

But i think the main thing is to just have fun with it and feel proud in what you have made
