Let's see, I've been cosplaying off and on for the last three years. I try to make my own costumes and am still learning all the little tricks to sewing. I love it. It's so fun to cosplay. I try to do outfits from manga as well as anime, and am moving towards designing my own outfits as well. It's a very slow process cuz I don't wanna burn myself out. I also try to do costumes that aren't over done, but sometimes I just gotta do my favorite character from particular series.
