Hello from Dallas

Brand new cosplayer here, so new I don't have any costumes yet short of a hoodie that zips all the way up to make me look like Darth Vader. Ha. I'll post it in my gallery just for a laugh.

I am a big comic book fan and so most of my future cosplays will likely be comic book characters. I am hoping to have my first costume done by Dallas Comic Con in May. I plan on going as the Red Hood (Jason Todd). I'm going to make a custom helmet and then I will probably buy the rest of the outfit for my first attempt so it may be pretty basic.

Other cosplays I plan on putting together:

Hal Jordan as Green Lantern (after I lose a bit more weight. I'm a bit self conscious wearing what amounts too a full body set of tights)
Doctor Who (One day I would love to have a costume for every single Doctor and go to Cons switching into each one over the course of the days as my regeneration cycles, lol)

Welcome! And don't worry about not having many cosplays yet. Everyone starts with their first, and before you know it, you have more costumes than you can count and are stuck trying to figure out which ones to bring to your next con lol

LOL. Thanks for the Welcome Kumoshi! I agree with you. Part of the gag would be walking around with a sort of "TARDIS" curtain that I could change behind. I was thinking of building something out of PFC pipe as a mobile dressing room. Then I could slip inside and "Regenerate" so to speak! It would be quite an undertaking.

Thanks Keebs. Being a big time comic book fan a lot of my costumes will likely be from comic books and from Sci Fi shows I watch. But there are some anime series my wife and I watch that we may try cosplaying. We've watched Chobits, Fruits Baskets, and Slayers. Maybe I'll throw in some cosplays from those series eventually too.
