Hi there - from Michigan

Hello!

I'm very new to this but it seems wonderfully exciting. I've been going to Comicons the past several years and want to be a part of the fun.

I have a sincere appreciation for the amount and work and creativity that goes into this art form. I'm absolutely fascinated by it. I'm hoping to make new friends and learn more about costume making and find new characters I've never heard of.

Have a wonderful day!

Hey Flash, welcome to Coscom. It's awesome that you've gone to a few Comicons. What made you decide to join in?

Decided to join partially because I want to learn more about manga costumes and costume design in general. I am blown away when I see the amount of effort and the awesome results that people have achieved at the cons.

I have always liked Halloween and how it's so easy to slip into character when in costume.
Fell in love with the Renaissance Festival at it's very beginning. Almost joined the Society of Creative Anachronisms to be more involved. ( I'm painfully shy which does not help )
I was involved in theater in HS in a support / tech role.

Dating myself here but remember when Dungeons and Dragons first came out? I do...
After years of that it started leading to live action role play where costuming and swordplay / spell casting came in.

I want to be a part of this community because it just looks so fun. I am a creative person surrounded by non-creatives and it can be like suffocation at times. This may help me to stop being so shy.

Thanks for asking! Cheers,
