1st cosplay in 2008 when I acquired a ticket to Amecon that year. I met lodes of new friends though cosplay which I found really refreshing. And cosplaying itself was a gr8 experience. I’m dyslexic so it was like my escapism form the real worled witch most people get from reading a good book.
I in no way have a craftsman’s hands and can only make the simplest items. So most the cosplays I wear aren’t made by me but probably have been forged together from parts and then tweaked to look right. That or I borrow someone from the cosplay community to help me, so at least its some1s good work on display, normaly gaming_goddess.
I suppose what im trying to say is I do most my cosplay in the wearing not the making.
