Cool Finally here! :)

Hi everyone!

Happy to say after lurking for a few months I can finally sign up. Yay!!

New to 'proper' cosplay but have been dressing up in whatever I could find since I was a kid.

I love video games, anime, comic books and anything remotely 'geeky'. Now I have the time and spare money to try my hand at Cosplay.

My first proper cosplay was this year for my birthday, we had a comic con themed party and I went as Sailor Moon. However I didn't make my costume since I have zero sewing experience.

Now I am working on making the accessories for a Twilight Princess version of Zelda, one day I hope to learn to sew well enough to be able to make my own costumes. For now I am having the basic dress part made by a tailor, but plan to add/modify some parts of the costume.

A little bit about me: I am Australian but currently living in the Middle East as expatriate working for a large hospitality company. I finally have the disposable income to try cosplay and have decided to heck with what anyone else thinks! Planning to enter a contest at the 2013 MEFCC in Dubai in April.

So, hi! *waves*

Thank you!

So it's not a big deal if I don't make my costumes? Cool. I mean I plan to learn, but that's going to take a while!

No it doesn't matter xD Not everyone knows how to sew even so when you do sew your own you get more credit

Yeah I hope to learn some day too n_n
