I haven't been to any conventions yet, but I'm always trying to entice my friends along for Comic-Con.
I started proper costuming two years ago when I decided to stop wondering how awesome being a Power Ranger would be for Halloween and find out first hand. Needless to say, my semi-decent outfit at the bars and clubs had me shaking more hands and taking more photos than a campaigning prime minister.
From then on, I was hooked. I just didn't know I'd ever have the excuse to play dress up more than once a year until Comic-Con.
I would love to cosplay Amazing Spiderman but my lack of sewing skill has me at a brick wall right now. In addition to the Red Ranger outfit, I have a Rick Grimes from Walking Dead sheriff outfit completed and I'm currently working on a Boba Fett costume.
