Well, I've been cosplaying for about two years and still don't have a group of friends willing to join me in my endeavours xD However, you'll find the cosplay community ( 98% of them at least ) are pretty friendly, and you make friends quick, whether it be cons of expos!!( plus you're a photographer, that immediately = a cosplayer's best friend!lol ) Good luck in your future costumes ^^!

Firstly let me say a very big welcome to you!

If you're in the SE then the Expo is a great starting point and there are loads of great people there. But don't be intimidated by the size, most events are much smaller and more structured. The Expo is more like a large shop with cosplay on the side ^_^

Also, on CI you'll get loads of support so any questions you have feel free to ask!

There are plenty to choose from and they range in difficulty too ^_^ Depending on what skills you have already, your first costume can vary loads!

Hi! I haven't been cosplaying for too long myself, started properly last year. Was pretty scared at first what people would think at first but everyone turned out to be really welcoming and supportive!

MCM's a pretty good start, haven't actually been there yet, will be my first time in May but have been told it's a busy busy place which should be fun! Try and find some mini-cons in the local area if you can as well, they're a bit more close-knit and less daunting

Hey!! Welcome to cosplay Island, i'm sure you'll love it here. I've been cosplaying for a couple of years now and my first experience was at the london may expo, and i really dont think there could be a better place to start. The atmosphere in incredible, the people are amazing and its so much fun, especially if you're in costume! And i'm sure once you start.. like me you will be hooked forever!! lol.

So yeah, im sure you'll enjoy it, and the community on this site is fab! so enjoy!! <3
