Facebook Page/WIP

I made a FB page a while ago,
as a place holder encase I wanted to use it,
and I sort of just left it,
because I like to make everything pretty before I share it...

and I can't figure out how to get it back since I was on my phone,
and someone liked it while I was at work,
so my plan was ruined,
and I will never have nice things....

[--------Page Info-------]
I have decided to make the page a WIP page,
I will post step by step on how I make my future cosplays,
even my mistakes, haha.

I personally found this the most helpful element when following others work,
and hopefully I'll be able to help other as well with their projects!

If your intreseted in WIP & tutorials here is my shanty page

I will some photoshoot images but most will be posted here on DA,
since facebook owns everything you post,
and I don't want Merida to be the new face for hemorrhoid cream.

I'm a very sarcastic smart ass that likes to dress up as cartoons and act like the shinning tard-star I know I can be. I make all of my own costumes, most during all nighters while crying and looking for emotional support online.

You and all of FDP are a great inspiration. You look like you have a lot of fun cosplaying, Do you have any advice for a young teen to begin cosplaying? Should I learn to sew to get better fitting clothing? Is sewing more expensive, if so, is it worth it? Do you have trouble picking who to cosplay? Sorry for all the questions but I have been following you and FDP for about a year now and really want to cosplay.

Thank you very much ^^

It depends on what you want out of cosplay. If you are more interested in just dressing up/cosplaying then buying in an option.
Or if you want to learn sewing/construction skills, then I suggest buying a cheap sewing machine and looking at tutorials.

A major part of cosplay for me is making it,
I love knowing that I turned raw materials into something.
But that's not the same for everyone ^^

Not really,
I choose characters/series I like or something a friend had asked me to make to complete their group.
