Honestly, none of those fears actually mattered. Although, seeing girls prance around in over priced costumes does make me feel sad, as I just want to slap the package out of their hands and guide them to the world of cosplay.
'Hi, I'm Jenna Say What, and I'll be your guide to the magical land of cosplay!'.
Going to the Halloween stores has also been an amazing experience. Sure, it's a bit more pricey now, but I keep forgetting to buy things like gloves online. The other day I went to the Halloween store to buy some fake blood and saw gloves! Oh yeah, I need those! Emma Frost isn't complete without gloves (and I needed them soon)! Plus I've been getting ideas left, right, and center, for next years cosplays.
I've noticed that in the run up to Halloween a lot of vloggers have been posting how-to's online, and I've been bookmarking and learning new things from them. I feel like I'm gearing up for a final exam, yet I'm actually enjoying the studying. I feel like this is the best time to start getting your feet wet if you wanted to start cosplaying. There are so many resources that are available this month that it's just silly not to watch the videos, follow those step by steps, and make something amazing!
