G'day - I'm Kirilee... very much a newbie to the world of cosplay

G'day everyone,

My name is Kirilee. I'm from Perth in Western Australia.
I have been sewing and creating costume for years - but mainly for my stock photography account on deviantart. The word cosplay has come up a bit in some comments on photos. I like to create what I call "Epic Dresses" every once in a while - which are costumes that are ridiculous in nature... like a 3 meter train with ruffles, a layered chiffon dress with 25-30 meters of fabric used in it... that kind of thing.

I guess I have cosplayed before (though at the time, I didn't know that was what I was doing) - a couple of years ago I went to a Stargate Convention and make a Teyla outfit, based off the dress she wore to her aunty's funeral. I even made the jewellery to match and bought a wig! I just wanted to enter the costume contest. :P

So anyway, I have decided to give cosplay another chance as I will be attending Perth's second Comic Con in March next year. I have decided to make an Tardis Dress (as I am a huge Doctor Who fan) in an over-the-top 1950s style. I plan to make it look very feminine (as the Tardis is a lady ), and will be styling hair, makeup and accessories in the same kind of vein. I want to do the whole hog and treat it as one of my epic dresses/ shoots (I am really quite excited - I have MOST of what I need to get cracking on the outfit)

I look forward to getting some tips from more experienced cosplayers and looking around here

I only started cosplaying 3 months ago but from what I have seen, it is decent. Nowhere as big as America though.

About 30% of people on average are in costume

That is still more than I thought it was.
I'm keen to see how many cosplays there are at Comic Con Perth in March.

Hello! Nice to meet you. I'm new to cosplay, too! ^^ I'm not from Australia but my name is Sydney, and my favorite Pacific Rim Jaeger is the Australian one, Striker Eureka, if that helps any. Lol!
