New Cosplayer! o x o

Hi everyone =)! I'm new to and hoping to meet people and make some friends.
I am attending San Diego Comic-Con (2013). Well if I have anyone to go with u w u
I don't have much friends that are into cosplaying. I'm hoping I can make my first cosplay costume for Comic Con. I am sort of a anti-social person, but I decided to have fun and join the community! I am from San Diego and I'm 15 years old and a sophmore in high school, I love to watch anime, read mangas, play games, and do fun stuff! I'm really open into meeting new people that have the same interests as mine and hopefully someone from my area can cosplay with me. My favorite animes are fruit basket, deathnote, vampire rosario and k-on. Whats your favorite anime? And what was your experience being a new cosplayer?

Hey, Panda. Welcome to If you're looking to make unsocial friends like yourself, that paradox is all the rage in this this community. Chances are you'll be able to find someone in your area, too-- There are a ton of California cosplayers here.

I don't have a favorite anime at the moment. I'm in a lull between finding series I like, so I'm taking suggestions for things to watch/read (but hopefully not cosplay from, I have enough plans at the moment).
As for my experiences as a new cosplayer, it was a pretty accepting group. Everyone wants to help out the new kids on the block. My first cosplays were Lag Seeing (Tegami Bachi) and Tsukasa (.hack//Sign), so I was one of the ones running around with a frizzy store-bought wig. Experienced cosplayers were a huge help to me.

Constructing : Soren (Fire Emblem), Fox (RWBY)
Upgrading : Sheik (armor), Cloud (wig and armor)

Welcome to ChocoPanda! Sadly, I don't live in your area, but I hope you find some local cosplayers! I encourage you to go to the con even if you don't have someone to go with because you'll meet local cosplayers there to hang out with at the next con!

I've seen and like all of the anime you said you like! K-on is awesome! Mio is my favorite character from that anime. My favorite anime are: Mahoraba (Almost nobody's heard of it), D.N. Angel, Chobits, and Clannad.
I started cosplaying in 2011 and I still have a lot to learn about cosplaying in general. Being a new cosplayer made me nervous because I was worried that people wouldn't like my cosplays, but the cosplay community is really awesome and I've always gotten compliments on my outfits. Sewing has been my most important, most used skill. Now I'm learning prop making.
Current Cosplays in Construction:
Tharja (Fire Emblem: Awakening)
Palutena (Kid Icarus)

Finished Cosplays:
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

Welcome to! My all-time favorite anime is Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, but I also like Fate/Zero, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, Steins;Gate, Kuroko no Basket, Tiger & Bunny, and Ouran High School Host Club a lot (: I was pleasantly surprised the first time I cosplayed, since I hadn't expected people to ask to take a picture of me since mine was rather plain xD Good luck with your first costume (:

Welcome I'm no where near your area either, I live on the complete other side of the US from you actually lol. But I'm certain you'll make a lot of friends here, some of which are bound to be close by. As Ilafatyu said, there are a lot of Cali cosplayers here. But even if it's just through the forums, you found the right place to break out of that anti-social shell.

welcome! I'm new as well ChocoPanda! I mean, I've tried to cosplay with not too great success. My first try was Undertaker from Kuroshitsuji at Otakon and my second try was Terezi from Homestuck. I'm actually on the other side of the US. I hope you have a great time with your cosplay and I wish you the best of luck
