Hi Jon! Welcome to cos.com! If you need some tutorials to help you out with making cosplays, they have some awesome ones here on the forums.
The people here are also very helpful if you want to post a thread for some advice if you need it.
Current Cosplays in Construction:
Tharja (Fire Emblem: Awakening)
Palutena (Kid Icarus)
Holo (Spice and Wolf)
Daisy (from the Mario games)
Kuro Usagi (Problem Children are Coming from Another World, Aren't They)
See you later, space cowboy
