Interested in cosplay!!

Post by Mad4lara » Sat Dec 13, 2008 2:05 pm

Heyy, I'm Sarah for those that don't know me yet (i'm new). I'm interested in cosplay, and don't know how to get started, although i would like to loose a bit of weight first. Are there any tips you can give me to help me get a kick start in cosplay.

OK I'm going to try not to get carried away (cosplay is my life :D ) Here are some things I always think about when starting a costume:

-reference pictures: get as many as you can, different angles are always helpful
-budget: if you don't want to spend too much money then try to look around for certain things and prices before purchasing
-eBay is your best friend for cosplay stuff :D
-strange materials can be used for certain things like armour or props so think outside the box
- these forums along with cosplay.com are great if you're stuck and need help :)

That's all for now, my boyfriend is patiently waiting so we can go to dinner lol
Get it together Lara!!
