I discovered cosplay when I started going to Minamicon, it looked like so much fun I decided to make some costumes myself. The fact that I didn't do much sewing before I got into cosplay shows in my earlier costumes I think. I love sewing now though and wouldn't part with my sewing machine.
I particularly like making costumes with fleece. I find it a really nice material to work with, I love how soft it is, and it's very comfortable to wear.
I usually make one or two costumes for Dave to wear at Minamicon as well as the ones I make for myself, I think it's fun to have matching costumes. :)
