i've been cosplaying at conventions since Oct 2005 and have been hooked ever since, i've always been a fan of fancy dress and have many self made and bought generic costumes (bunny/policelady/cowgirl/fairy)and i live working on my own concept designs and variants of existing characters
i think it was influenced when i was in my highschool years i was tutored at home for a long while and the only time i went into the school was in the evening with my mum who was on the Drama committee, i had unlimited access to the school costume cupboard as well as being involved with the making of scenery and large props, (we made a replica working wurlitzer jukebox for their production of grease)
also i've had the benefit of my mum (in her youth) was a seemstress and industrial upholsterer for rolls royce who has worked with almost every type of fabric imaginable including leather and has a machine that can cope with 3 layers of cowhide O_o she also has more sewing knowledge than you could shake a stick at
