My cosplay debut was in February of 2010: My friend Ellie was extremely fond of cosplay and talked about it often. I was immediately curious. Though a bit intimidated by the people I had seen cosplaying online, I started with a simple costume. I had some experience sewing, but there were gaps in my knowledge. I also did not have access to a sewing machine. Since I did not get the chance to use a sewing machine for a while, I would make my costumes by hand. When I moved from Texas to Chicago for school, I started taking the Costume Construction classes offered in the theater department of my College. They have improved my sewing ability and given me confidence to take on bigger projects.
