My first cosplay was Mokona from CLAMP series. The actual outfit was really good and nothing feel apart, but I had no wig, no makeup, and no idea how to pose. I actually fixed it up and I want to wear it out if I can :3

Mine was Black Canary, it wasn't too terrible, I just bought most of the stuff and put it together though. I could have had better boots. I made a jacket but never wore it because I didn't line it and it was itchy! I also had no clue how to be in character, because I'm shy and didn't know all that much about the character (I was going with a guy as Green Arrow and I just liked making costumes) which I think was a worse choice than any construction problems.

My first cosplay was regular Luffy from One Piece, and everything I thought was great, except the vest! It had fake buttons and was very boxy like since a friend's mom helped me make it and didn't know how to do button holes. Never using that vest again and have since gotten a better one

My first cosplay was Sakura Shinguji from Sakura Taisen. I wore it at Anime Boston 2012. Sadly, I wasn't able to wear the wig because I lost my wig cap. It was bought online. I don't have any pics of it, but I still have it.

If we want to go waaaaay back, there was one time in middle school where I wore a short Gothic dress with Chobits ears to a manga event at the local bookstore... But it wasn't really an intentional cosplay (plus it was embarrassing) so I'm going to say it doesn't count.

My first real cosplay, as in, I decided I wanted to cosplay the character and made the outfit from scratch cosplay, was Hitomi Kanzaki from Vision of Escaflowne. I think I did an okay job all things considered. Obviously there are a lot of things I would do differently if I were making it now (tailoring the jacket better, for example) but it was decent for my first serious costume. I also didn't wear a wig the first time, because I had short red hair at the time, but I figured out pretty quickly that it didn't quite work and got a wig.

I've actually been considering revisiting it soon, maybe tailoring the jacket properly and making a new shirt and bow. She's one of my favorite characters ever, so it might be worth it to wear again.

I think my first cosplay, Luxray, was pretty good, even though everyone thought I was Luxio or Shinx. >>; I wore it at Florida Anime Experience, 2 Anime Days, and then retired it since I felt 3 times was satisfying. I'll miss wearing it!
I no longer cosplay.

If we're talking about the first time I did it, then I was a store bought Sailor Moon in 5th Grade. All the kids at the daycare seemed to love it. My first cosplay at a con however was Soi Fong (Suž-Fēng), and this was back in my days of starting out, where I felt a wig wasn't important and that I could use my real hair. Boy was that a doosy.

Next Cosplay: Sat- DAN!Protagonist [Persona 5]

Oh jeez, my first cosplay was probabblyyyy when I was Harley Quinn. It was pretty bad, I bought the costume from a Halloween store, so it was made of fake velvet and was really ill-fitting. The whole thing was about three inches short on both my arms and legs, and the hood didn't cover my neck all the way. Needless to say, I think I'm getting better.

My first cosplay was Momiji from Fruits Basket. I got a local seamstress to make me both the shorts and skirt for the uniform so I could be Tohru later too.

I got a wig but never did bind, *sigh*. Girl!Momiji for the win?

My first cosplay was Iruka from Naruto. It would have been a lot better if I'd used appropriate fabric. I did not.



Let's never speak of it again.
