My friend introduced me to cosplay after persuading me to join her YGO group and my first con was February 2011 - a very small one near where I live. My cosplay was half finished and terrible but it was good fun. I pretty much caught the cosplay bug and have been wanting to cosplay literally everything since.
After taking a year out due to my first year of uni, I have come back with a need to learn new skills and so have decided to start small and work my way up, hopefully gaining new and useful skills with each costume.
I have a long way to go before I'm actually any good, but I'm learning and keep trying so hopefully I'll get somewhere one day!
