Just put something up.. This forum seem dead except for the cosplay quote/order threads..

So let's talk.... What brings u guys here.. I suppose most would fall under this group which is "To order costumes from Tessie"... Well, I'd say I'm guilty of being in the group too.. Not that is bad... In fact, its much of the opposite... lol..

Anyways, we need some life here too... Or else this might as well be no different from a selling blog... So yea... Speak!

mine sucks too >_< But everyone has their first time la.

My first cosplay in EOY 06. As red jacket Akito >_< No wig. D: Cos I dint know where to get and I cant do bank transfer that time. Makeup very thin (cos mummy says too thick look like ghost.) In the end, too thin, me in peektures turn out horrid too >_<

That was when I first wore contacts. Not used to it >_<

Anyway, my first cosplay, the pics I have are super few >_< Don't feel like collecting Razz

I rmb making an account after "stalking" sgcafe for some times cos some one said she is a newbie and needs help. So I made an account and asked for help too. And claude was the first person who really bring us into cosplay Very Happy (gratefulllll)

now, share stories!!!

Tessie> i wanna hear xDD

Let's see. My first cosplay experience, I think, was in school. When I was in Sec 1, we were allowed to wear home clothes...for some celebration or another. So I borrowed a lab coat from the science labs, wore my father's pink shirt, a pair of bathroom slippers and ta-da! Tenpou-gensui from Saiyuki Gaiden.

My first actual cosplay event was the end of my Sec 2 year though. Went with my friends as a Flame of Recca team.



I cosplayed Raiha. Took part in competition, in the Best Pair match with the Kurei cosplayer. Tripped, fell on my way up stage (it was planned!! Being in character and all!) and got some nasty carpet burn on my elbow. But it was fun. And I was pretty proud of how the purple color in my hair did show out pretty obviously/naturally in photos.

Oh God, that was in 2001. I've been cosplaying for almost a decade. *facepalms*

if i dun remeber wrongly, tv last time did an interview with cosplayers (when it just started) and flame of recca was shown. Was it your team? (ahh, the kaoru. He looks utterly familiar >_<)

Wa... you started cosplaying at quite a young age. That's cool. And you have your friends. I was still at study nerd at sec 2 (>_>)

Er. It was scary -just because I am the dumb monster- and embarassing because the dammit costume is very very very ... weird. Well, it was funny in the sense that after the whole damn thing, we were SO relieved that we have done the performance already. =w=;

My first cosplay experience........ Hmmm... EOY '06... I found out about the event online a few days before the event itself... Just googling around and checking out about cosplays and stuff.... Never heard of sgcafe then...

So I decide to give it a shot...

Tried to think of a character I can put together in such a short time... So Misa from Deathnote was it... That night, I looked for reference pics.... yahoo.... flickr.... youtube... etc etc etc.... I settled for the cover picture of her in book 3 of deathnote...

the next morning, came up with a list of what to buy.... as sewing clothes is not my talent.... i had to get similar clothes and modify... then i asked my mom for permission to go out and went shopping with my lil sis.... i went around the shops in tampines as i'm not very familar with any other places.... got my stuff... went home in the eveining..... that night i sewed the zippers onto the top... cut holes into the armwarmers.... cut off the sleeve of my sister's green oversized shirt an spray painted a stripe across it (i'm making ppg's buttercup's costume for my sis too..)

next morning i made my mini shinigami, rem, with wires and papier mache... drew the writings on a plain black organizer for misa's death note... waited a whole day for my shinigami to dry up...

the third day... i wrapped my shinigami in white crepe paper... and painted it... all done... eoy's the next day....

woke early morning for my first cosplay event.... i was uber excited... got ready n stuff... i didnt know where to get a blonde wig then, so i sprayed my hair gold... it wasn't that obvious but time wasn't on my side...

with that, i'm off to eoy.... there were alot of awesome cosplayers around... i'm not that recognizable.... well, my costume wasn't very good as compared them.....but thank god, shinigami rem is always on my side..... cos of her, ppl know who i'm cosplaying......

the experience at event............ it was fun..... getting my pics taken.... taking pics of other cosplayers..... watching the performances.... adoring the dollfie displays...... booth hopping....... but i enjoyed the making better..... ~_~

momo> yar!!! agree!! When you cosplay, you get to be in character (n sometimes not >_>) and you get to meet friends. After everything ended, start stressing again. (arg, homework not done. projects due tmr! exam next day blah blah)

It was fun while it lasted though Razz

I'm even more newbie. I'm going to start at this years AFA and EOY ><

And I'm only Sec 2 sumore but all my aunties think I look like I already took O' levels. My japan(jun 08') daoyou asked me how my first year of uni was. *headdesk* I go back to pri sch...Teacher: Orh, of cos I remb you! You O' level batch right? *facepalm*

Anyway, I'm very slack about my studies one. Tessie can be witness to that, cause I ordered my first costume from her yesterday. Only 1 day before the official start of my EOY papers. >< I started studying my geog at 10pm, sleep at 1 am. Took my papers at 8 am. Doing humanities exam on 4 1/2 hours of sleep = Not good.

But I also can be very spontanous. I joined sgCafe exactly a week ago, and five days after that already change costume plans twice and then ask for price quote >< and now already Settle everything ho-ho for the first costume already. It's only been 1 week. Ha.

Gosh.. you all seem like seasoned veterans in this field...

My first cosplay was earlier this year at Cosfest.. It sorta happened when a fren of mine sorta dragged me into cosplay cuz she didn't want to go alone =P at that time i had only 2 weeks to prepare my costume proper.. as such, i chose one of the easier characters to do from FF to compliment her, and went as Cid Highwind from FF:VII AC..

Cosplay really seemed like COSTpay after the event, as i realised i went overbudget on my intended clothings and prop materials.. thankfully half of it is now considered my "new clothes".. Overall, it was a really enjoyable event and a new experience.. was just glad there were ppl who recognised who i was cosing, and wanted to take a picture with me =)

a funny thing happened on the 2nd day though, when i went for a performance at the Esplanade right after Cosing.. The ushers there were like o_O at my spear.. when i gave them my ticket.. until one of them came up to me and say "Sorry sir, but i'm afraid you'd have to leave your weapon at the door".. co-incidentally there were some prestigeous ppl attending the performance as well.. and i had frens who were joking "So that's why your weapon's got to be confiscated" =.= not like i wanted to have it with me even if i could..

Looking forward to a more "typical" kind of 2nd experience? =P
