The first time I ever experienced cosplay was in 2005 when attending the London MCM Expo and I thought it looked like fun. Of course, I never realised just how much work it was until I attempted it myself! From then onwards I have been to events all over the country.
My aim in cosplay is to keep aiming above your perceived skill level. I had no idea I could sew AT ALL until recently. I didn't know what wonderflex even was a few short months ago! Just keep trying to push yourself further, it's part of the fun of cosplay!
My proudest moment was winning the Best Male at the Naruto DVD Launch in London which was run by Manga Entertainment. I had Kakashi's voice actor telling me how great my costume was and asking randomly during the event if I would pose with him even before I won!
