Am I the only noob to feel like this??? ready the violins...
I Have been doin silly little costumes for Halloween every year since i was a kid ( once i made a teletubby suit and got paid to dance for the kiddywinkles, haha did that just sound...weird )
Anyway i just got my pc online and was looking into this kinda thing and i never knew there were conventions where people moot with others in costumes. Wow!! Im not alone, it feels like you all know each other and i wanna mingle!!
How do i get information about all these conventions, what if i dress up and im all alone with no one i know!!
I would really appreciate it if someone could give me the low down, not to hold my hand ( i moisturize everyday...promise) just a lil friendly nudge in the right direction.

Bloomin heck, you live in Northampton! SAME AS ME!! Gosh this is getting gooood.

Don't worry, at conventions the majority cosplay so you won't be the only one!

Also, there will be an anime convention in Northampton's Park Inn Hotel in April 09 =)

I would say this is a good place to find out. As most conventions book up quite early, it leaves months to find out who's going, chat with them etc.

You'll never be the only one in cosplay at a convention (unless it's not an anime convention. I'm not sure how many Thpomas the Tank Engine cosplyers there are out there.) It's a good way to break they ice and chat with people, asking them about their cosume and showing off yours.

As you can see from here, most cosplayers are lovely and happy to help. If someone is a knob, leave them alone, it's their loss if they're going to be anti social.

If you do book tickets at an anime convetion you'll NEVER be the only on dressed up. hundreds of people do it and if you find one near you and attend regularly you might even start getting recognition. it's awesome!

Welcome XD
Well.. welcome to the.. the... what would you call this? Hey... lets just call it ... club for now X3

Everyone is really friendly at conventions, its always scary the first time for anything, but once you see other people dressing up looking silly / funny / amazing / drop dead gorgeous then you soon realise that you aren't the only one and that these people MUST have a sense of humour if they are walking around like that XD

So... Welcome to the... community ^^

Well.. you've found a great place to start right? Most info will be availiable here.

A good thing to start out with is the London Expo maybe?
