My first cosplay was at the May 2010 London MCM Expo as Tifa from Final Fantasy VII (Advent Children outfit). I bought the main part of the costume but made the earring and painted an old pair of shoes for it. I was pretty pleased when people at the Expo seemed to like my costume and wanted my photo since I wasn't sure it was that great. I have since cosplayed Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter and Princess Leia (A New Hope variant) with purchased costumes. I have now started making my own costumes and made River Tam's battle dress from Serenity. I am currently working on a dalish elf costume from Dragon Age. Nienna is my own character so it's a lot of fun. I have a lot of other ideas in my head, but for now I'm concentrating on Nienna.
