I haven't been cosplaying long, (since about the begining of 2003) but it seems like a fun hobby so far. Currently, I make little to nothing on these costumes by myself, and love giving the creators credit while I humbly wear them. Going to conventions in character has been a blast. I love meeting new people to the hobby and discussing ideas as I learn how to sew. Hopefully, over time I'll be able to sew my own creations, because I love art and designing and feel as though it may be something I'm good at.
