About.... what? Tips on what?

Tips on sewing? Practice. Learn some stitching techniques, and get familiar with the sewing machine.

Tips on going to con? Just be yourself. Bring snacks, water, phone, wallet, and a bag. Always make sure your stuff is still with you~

The most important rule is to play the character that you are cosplaying. Look up their poses and listen to how they speak. If you are a perky character you should act perky and happy (Not grumpy). Most of all you should have fun!!! : 3

What about posting a picture for reference? That way, we can give you tips on how to create what you're doing.

For your first costume being made by yourself, I suggest cotton. Nothing shiny. In my opinion, you should buy, learn, and use patterns. Looking up tutorials will help a lot also. Personally, I would go with either a popular costume/anime/game character since there are many, many, many tutorials, hints, tips, and reference pictures that'll make making your first cosplay easier. It's great practice. I'm up for cosplaying original characters, but don't enter any contests (expecting to win) or be upset if anyone doesn't know who you're supposed to be.

Best of luck! Hope the craft gods smile down upon you.
