FAQ thread for General Cosplay Chat?

I've been noticing a lot of threads asking the exact same questions. Things like, "First Con/Cosplay?", "Going Barefoot?", "Cosplaying original characters?", "Is it okay to modify costume?". I feel like it would be much easier to have a thread to point to instead of replying with the same answer again and again.
I've heard this idea before, and I just thought I should bring it to the staff attention

Fair warning, even with a FAQ, people will keep posting new threads. It might stop it a little bit, but it won't stop it completely.

That said, I'm not against it! If you want to help with starting and compiling a good FAQ on general cosplay questions that get asked a lot, we can make a sticky thread with links to the most comprehensive threads on those subjects.

I know that, but we would have a thread to send them the link to instead of answering it again.

That would be great, how would I help?

You could start a list in this thread of the questions you see asked the most, and we can try and find threads that answer those questions well.
