My first interest in Cosplay actually came from watching the Blizzcon costume contests on youtube about 2 years ago, I remember watching them and just thinking to myself: "Dear lord the effort these nerds must have gone to to make those outfits- Wait a minute, I'm a nerd too!" So since then I've just sort of casually looked up pictures of World of Warcraft cosplay out of interest.
Not long ago however there was a segment on "This Morning" on ITV where they interviewed 4 cosplayers about the hobby and from then something just clicked in my head telling me "I have to do this myself".
