I didn't know there was a UK SECTION!!! Because of this I have joined the forum
I'm from West Sussex and the first time I cosplayed was last October - me and my sis went as Link and Sheik (anybody see us?) This May we are going as Kadaj and Yazoo.
Last October it was great - we were waiting in the massive line to go in and then some boys gave us their tickets for free because they liked our costumes ^_^
