I'm a complete newbie when it comes to cosplay. Mostly, I just liked to look at pretty pictures! However, this year, I'm going to give it a shot. And I've found a most challenging character to try... Mad Moxxi from the Borderlands series. I'm giving myself a year to come up with the costume (due to money issues and time).
Here are my setbacks:
1) I have no idea how to sew. No clue. My boyfriend does, however, and is willing to help. But I will be wanting to make more than one costume in my life, sooo... (Also, I've checked out and printed the sewing tutorial and some patterns to start).
2) I know this isn't a huge deal, but I'm black and I want my costume to look as accurate as possible with the makeup and all. I know I shouldn't be stressing about it, but I've seen less than stellar cosplays... and well, I don't want to be one of those.
3) I have no idea what to do. Absolutely no idea where to start.
If you have any tips, they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
