It's kind of funny that one and a half years ago I thought Cosplay would be super easy. I thought I coud buy every-day-clothes for all my costumes.
I thought I could make a kick-ass Rikku underwater body suit costume for my 1st costume. -_-
I didn't know wigs were involved ( i thought bald people only wore them). I didn't know what a wig cap was.
When I sewed my seams you could see the stitching. I once was making Yuna's armbands ( FF X-2 songstress) and I used bright yellow thread with dark blue fabric. You could see the line of stitching going down.
I over bought fabric and didn't measure myself before buying. I didn't do reseach. I also didn't use hardly any pictures when making my costumes. I used 1 reference picture for my Yuna costume. -_-
I ended up throwing it away half a year ago. I was so ashamed. I thought I would wear it and never use it again.
I didn't know what Anime or Manga was. "Conventions" were for star trek geeks who were over weight and sweaty who had stupid obsessions with make believe characters.
I picked complicated, drastic, out of my league costumes that I thought would be a piece of cake.
Well alot has changed since then. In between then and now I stopped cosplaying, gave it up all the way. I had hardly even scraped the surface of what cosplay really was. I had a big ego and thought I could make anything.
I'm finally done with my Ed costume and photoshoot and I'll I get from my mom is "That's neat". She really couldn't give a crap.
