total Newb from Lancashire who really wants to get into cosplay
Hi there I want to introduce myself, I'm 18 and called jay or jade i don't mind which and live in chorley which is between bolton, preston and wigan. I have enjoyed anime and manga for a good few years now, and a good chunk of my spare time is dedicated to it (Naruto,bleach,vampre knight,OHSHC,Kuroshitsuji,wolf's rain....etc...).
I have known about cosplay for a long time and have really wanted to get into it but i've never had the chance, and go to con's and expo's and meet new people. However I haven't got a clue on how to go about it. None of my family or friends are interested in these kinds of things so i'm basically all by myself here.
If someone can give me a starting point or something or anything, because i really want to meet people with the same interest, and I'm sat here thinking I really wanna do this but i haven't a clue what i'm doing and i don't know anyone who does.

Hi Jay, I'm Hannah, and I'm from Wigan though while I'm at uni I'm dwelling in Manchester.
(I used to go to Chorley to go to the swimming pool when I was a kid...random memory is random)
The event closest to you will probably be the Manchester Expo that's happening this summer. That's a little while off, so you have plenty of time to research into costumes and the like, and it'd be a great way to experiance cosplay for the first time!

Lots of people start off by buying cosplays, but don't feel that you have to at all. Making them is so much fun, and you don't really have to have any prior knowledge of sewing, just a lot of patience and a little creativity.

Everyone here is really friendly and always very willing to offer advice when it comes to knowing how to do techniques, or where to get hold of materials so don't be afraid to ask questions (but not of me, I'm not very good at all XD)

I hope you enjoy being on Cosplay Island, and I'm sorry if I ranted a bit!

Hannah x

Thanks
no i'm not going to uni, any groups and clubs i've contacted haven't gotten back me and i suspect that they never will it has been that long
I really do want to go to cons and expos but I don't want to go there and feel like a sore thumb.
