One of my favorite costumes was Envy, from FMA. I decided to kick it up a notch, so I did Thane Krios from Mass Effect 2.
If I can do it, anybody can. Just work hard and never accept "good enough". Strive for excellence and it will be your's in due time.
I'm a U.S. Navy Sailor. I also make costumes sometimes. Probably more often, now that Uncle Sam pays me well.
I cosplayed Thane Krios and have a fondness for projects that are way over my head.
