Hello from Italy :-)

Hi everyone!

I'm new, I've been on this forum sometimes when looking for informations, but never even lurked in a continuative way.

I'm 23 years old, live in Italy and I'm studying biotechnology while working part time.

I've loved sewing and cosplay for a while, but since what I earn with my job is spent almost completely to pay for my university fees, food and gasoline for my car until now I had to sew everything by hand. While it's something I love doing, it's very time-consuming and between my job and studying I have little of it.

Luckily, this year my family got me a sewing machine as a Christmas gift! I've tried it with some simple projects (skirt and blouse) and it's quite good, simple but very sturdy and powerful.

Of course, this means that now I've got the means to sew more, and cosplay is definitely something I want to try! As I said, I've stumbled upont his forum several times and it aalways seemed like a nice place to me, full of enthusiasm and competente people.

Other things that I enjoy are anime and manga (especially seinen/josei), tabletop rpgs, reading almost everything (apart from mystery, thriller and romance stories), learning new things, fashion history, fun science facts.

Welcome to cosplay.com!
By any chance, is your avatar from The Rose of Versailles? I've been meaning to read the manga x_x

Thank you both for the welcome ^_^

@Kumoshi: yes, it's Oscar from that anime/manga. It's the first cartoon of any kind I ever saw and fell in love with her (I tought she was a man ).

It shows its age and often there is so much DRAMA! it verges on the comical, but the story ancd characters are quite good.

Differences between manga and anime: the anime stops when we know the fate of the main character, while the manga has another 100-150 pages that show us the fat of the other characters, feeling less stumped. Also, the manga often has bits of intentional humour, while the anime is more serious and focused.

@esclarmonde: Thanks for the comparison ^-^ Maybe I'll just read the manga rather than read the anime so I can see what happens to the other characters and also because I generally like a lot of humor xD Or maybe I'll do both, if I have the time~
