Cosplay and costume virgin saying hi!!!!!
Hi i'm totally new but completely fascinated with this!!!
I've made one fancy dress costume in my life (mother dearest always did them when i was younger) but i really want to learn and make some amazing costumes and go to conventions, so i figured this would be the best place to start to learn!!!!

Welcome! Glad you find the site, and I hope you do find it useful. We dont promise to have all the answers, but between the lot of us on here (of which there are now over 300!) I'm sure we can pretty much answer most questions to do with cosplay XD

Have you got any ideas what you want your first costume to be? Also, if you haven't already check out the Events page, it'll show you a pretty concise list of all cosplay events coming up where you can actually parade your costume around for people to see!

Anyway, hope you're settling in well (good to see someone new who isn't scared of posting in the forums!) and I look forward to seeing pics of what you decide to make.

Feel free to PM me, or ask here on the forums if you have any problems or questions regarding the site

Yay a new cosplayer is born

Welcome to the Site XD

Everyone here is really friendly so if you see a costume and need to know how it was made dont be afraid to PM people and ask youll find people like to be asked too

Even people that have been doing this for years are still learning new things all the time...

Also be sure to check out the Events and tutorials tabs at the top of the screen you'll find loads of useful bits there..

I look forward to seeing your future cosplays and have fun XD

Awww cheers guys!!!
I reckon i'm going to make a Sailor Moon costume as it looks pretty basic in a sense...

I'm going to Collectormania at the GMEX in March as i live behind the GMEX, but i doubt i'll have my costume ready by then. Not to a wearable standard anyway.

I'm thinking about buying one off EBay and taking it to pieces and learning that way.

If you don't fancy buying a costume to take apart, have a look at normal clothes. Buy cheap ones from a charity shop and look at the shapes they made from.

Cosplaying is like puzzle solving. It's about de constructing something, then figuring out how to put it back the way you want.

Good luck, and we are always here to help!
