I have always loved dressing up, but properly started cosplay when a group of my friends all decided we wanted to dress up for a Lord of the Rings event at our local theatre (the one where I now work) and I volunteered to make us all costumes. I was on a major budget and without a proper sewing machine, but I was hooked. Since then, I've just really made costumes for fancy dress nights out, nothing too serious, until I went to a con last year with some friends. It's something I want to invest some time and effort into, and get some really quality costumes to wear to events.
