I started cosplaying when I was in Primary School o.O;; lmao, not 'proper' cosplay as such, but I was well on my way to it. Made my own little Sailor Mars uniform, moved on over to Pokemon & attempted to dress up as Ditto [rotflmao, yes, a big pink blob... namely a pink sheet w/ goo on halloween -_-] then got into DBZ & ran around trying to be Trunks [the first time I ever cut my hair by myself... biggest mistake of my pre-teen life, but I'm much better now haha].

I first got into costuming when I decided to go to the Star Wars convention in the States in 2005. I finished my first costume in April 2004 and wore it to Armageddon a few times. I don't have many pics of it online, as it sucked bad! I remade it entirely before heading overseas, my second version was much better :)

Didn't know much about sewing, so didn't think I could tackle much else, but jumped in the deep end and made my Amidala Lake dress before visiting the actual film location in 2006. It was a massive learning curve, doing the whole thing in 3 weeks - but it opened my eyes to what I could achieve, and inspired me to continue trying :) I wore it to Armageddon Auckland 2006, entered in the cosplay (was super shy back then, was too nervous to talk to anyone).

My first real jump into cosplay was Harley Quinn and the Joker at Auckland Armageddon 2007. I actually had the nerve to do a skit, complete with Harley's voice (I still can't believe I did that!). I love my costume, though it needs to be redone - hopefully soon :)

Post By Rikku. 28/06/10, 02:28 pm

I first started cosplaying at ChChGeddon 2010. ^-^ Rikku from FFX-2. I look at it and realize I really was just a chick in a bra.
I worked on it for a bit for the Anime Con down here in Dunnaz, and it worked out much better.
WHY I started cosplaying was cos I wanted to 'dress up'. xD It sounded fun. I didn't even know it was called cosplaying. But I'm glad I did, otherwise I wouldn'ta met all you guys!!1 <3333

I first cosplayed in 2009 i think at London MCM Expo when I was on a gap year over there.

After being totally mad about anime and manga for ages, I discovered this thing called cosplay at Auckgeddon in like 2008 and after youtubing heaps, finally cosplayed as Ritsuka.. well more like a black and red cat girl in lolita Razz

Last year.. My first costume was Honne Dell, my second was Len, both from Vocaloid.
I've bought numerous wigs and haven't finished anything since.
I chickened out and didn't go to Armageddon last year- I was far too shy. :'D
