New to cosplay and ACP. My fiance loves cosplay and all things anime, I'd like to at least get my toes wet and figure all this out so I can support him in his hobbies. So I'm not sure wear to start. He took me to my first convention not long ago, Tokyo in Tulsa. I dressed up as Death of the Endless from Neil Gaiman's Sandman series.

No one knew who I was lol. Except one girl who worked at a comic book store. =)

Anyway, I'd like to look into couples cosplay, but I feel kind of like an interloper dressing up and not knowing any of the backstory to the characters.

So where is a good place to start? I was kind of thinking of doing Belle and the Beast? But like...our own versions of it? do people do that? I found this picture by misakochan.. ... a-36358959

Anyway, what should I watch first? Where does a girl start?
