Where Have You Been All My Life

Ever since I can remember I have always dressed up as characters from movies I had watched or books I had read. When I was much smaller I would go for days being in character and would have the greatest times pretending. As I became older I had to keep that part of me a secret because no one around me could understand it. I had always wished there to be groups of ppl that dressed up into characters and performed skits and stuff together. About 6 months ago I was talking to someone about how I wished that, (I don't remember who) and they mentioned this word cosplay. After that I found that there are tons of anime and comic conventions in my area, and tons of ppl who do exactly what I thought was just a weird thing I did! I am going to my first convention next year and am working on a cosplay! I am looking forward to creating, expressing, and learning in this where I thought I was alone I actually have a whole community here that is in this love with me! Please take care of me

Welcome! You are going to be EXTREMELY shocked when you attend your first con. Because the cosplay community is huge, and such an incredible community of family. You will honestly wish you had learned about cosplay sooner lol. Cons are so much fun, and as you start attending more and more, you'll start making cosplay friends and suddenly find yourself submerged in a group of awesome people who share the same interest and love to cosplay. I'm glad you found out about the cosplay community, I'm certain you're going to have a lot of fun with it

So once again, Welcome! I look forward to seeing you around the forums

Hi, Opetry. Welcome!

Finding cosplay.com must have been a life-changing moment for you. Glad you found us. You sound really passionate about it, so I am willing to bet you are going to be a great cosplayer! Do you sew and make your costumes yourself or do you improvise with what you find in stores?

See you around the forums!

No way!! I would pour water from a silver pitcher into our birdbath outside and pretend I was Galadriel! I hope I get to meet you at one as well!
