I've been a member here for a few weeks now, but I've yet to introduce myself or really become a part of this community, so I thought I'd say hi!
My name's Dane and I just cosplayed for the first time at Anime Expo 2010 in LA last weekend. I was Phoenix Wright from the Ace Attorney series and I even asked fellow cosplay.com members for some tips on the costume, which I really appreciated! I had an amazing time in costume at the convention and I plan to cosplay more in the future. :)
Thanks for this awesome community!
