Hiya ^_^ I'm looking to get into cosplay.
Hi my name is jade and i'm from lancashire, I've decided to try and get into cosplay after going to my very first expo in manchester at the comic con and loving the people and their costumes.

Now i would love to go to the london comic con in october and hopefully dress as one of my favourite anime characters as well.I don't know anyone who has the same interest in anime as me so i'm trying to put myself out there and possibly make new friends.

If you have any tips or advice you could give me on how to go about meeting people, joining groups and start up being a cosplayer they would be really appreciated ^_^.

A few animes i like off the top of my head are naruto, Black butler, death note, vampire knight, OHSHC, x/1999, gravitation and theres plenty more ^_^ So yeah please comment and say hi.

Love Black Butler, Gravitation and OHSHC. X/1999 is probably my favorite anime/ manga ever (even in spite of the fact of its sadly unfinished state). You obviously have good tast.

Hey welcome ^^

You should definately go to October MCM! It's a great place for a first con. If you dont feel brave enough to go alone, try and convince a friend to go with you =P Bribing with cookies is always useful.

Hi! Welcome to CI!

I'm also from Lancashire, where abouts do you live?

Also, you should totally go to the expo in October, I would if I wasn't a poor student lacking in money! I want to get a job just so I can afford these things!
