Hello from France

Hi there !

my name is Sarah and I'm totally new into cosplay world. I live in the south-east of France between Grenoble and Lyon.
I hesitated a looooooong time, I thought cosplay was too hard for me, but I really want to try it !

(sorry if I make English mistakes)

So here I am. I want to collect some advices for my fist cosplay.

I'm a seamstress since many years, I teached myself alone, and I'm specialized in Lolita fashion. I'm familiar with a lot of techniques and supplies: Fimo, felt, jewellery, embroidery, etc etc!

I love to learn every new crafting technique and improve my skills.

have a nice day ^^
Sarah

Ooh, France. Fancy. Welcome to coscom, Sarah.

Cosplay isn't so difficult as people believe. Yes, there are times when you have no idea how to approach a problem, or after staring down your wig for hours you feel like throwing it to the abyss, but it's all worth it in the end when everything falls into place. If you've got experience with Lolita, chances are you won't have nearly so many holdups as the average first-timer.

Good luck, and don't hesitate to ask around for advice. I'm sure the EGL forum here will be especially glad to have you.
