I saw the ad for Auckgeddon '08 on TV so I googled it. Saw there was a cosplay comp so I thought there'd be hall cosplays too (I was influenced by american cosplays >>).
I quickly put together a Yuuki Cross cosplay cause I was obsessed with it at the time, grabbed a friend and went.
I wish I discovered CNZ before then and not like straight after geddon ;A;

A friend who knew I liked Death Note a lot asked me if I'd cosplay Misa (it was just after the anime finished so about 3 years ago), at the time I actually had very little idea what cosplay was because outside of watching anime and reading manga I didn't have anything to do with fandom. I then 2 months later using a wig I had from a dance costume and a costume I'd made using left over fabric from dance costumes (wasn't a wear anything gothic and claim it's Misa, I'm so proud of myself) wore it to a Death Note Marathon we had.
Thus began my tale...

My mum made my sister a Raichu outfit when she was in Year 1 for a Junior school production :B My first unofficial was Rika from Digimon Tamers (because she's kick-ass) in Year 5 when I didn't know what cosplay was, my first official was Reno to VGL (2007).

It all spirals downwards from there...

Well... My mum made me a mickey mouse costume when I was 3. I still have it~

other than that my first time was cosplaying cloud strife (very bad cosplay!) for my 16th birthday? Maybe it was my 17th...
My first time cosplaying and actually knowing it was cosplay was for the first Chchgeddon as Winry from FMA. What good times~

My first cosplay was Axel from KH2 but it was terrible and WE NEVER TALK ABOUT THIS AGAIN. That was at the end of 2006.

Then my second cosplay, and my first one for a convention, was Alphonse Elric from the FMA movie, and that one was actually half decent. April 2007; CHCHgeddon.

Does wearing cat ears and tail count as cosplay?

Or a half arsed fur-suit?

Post By Suixelo. 08/06/10, 06:23 am

lol well, before I knew what cosplay was I closet cosplayed Misty to see Pokemon the First Movie XD My mum wouldn't let me out of the house in a tank top though, so I wore a sleeved top. We also dressed up as sailor scouts for a school presentation thing and I made a Cheshire Cat costume for book day etc.

But official cosplay? Just before DO '08. I'd watched the cosplay contest for years at Auckgeddon, but wasn't confident enough to do it myself. After finding the forums, I got the confidence and help I needed to start! Admittedly, my first cosplays were really bad and mostly bought, but I had fun. First contest was Auckgeddon '09.

I first cosplayed in 2005. 8D
I was influenced by the internet and the americans haha. So when I found out that a cosplay contest actually existed I jumped right in.
I cosplayed as Kagome from Inuyasha - complete with bow and arrows. XD

Im hoping to find the people who entered the contest in 2005, actually. I really want to know who the group of nice people were... they helped a shy little 12 year old in the contest~ Shout out to the Raven (Teen Titans) cosplayer! I still remember you! WHO ARE YOU? D8

Ah the memories ahuhuhu
And btw Tammy the title is filled with fobby English 8D

My friend pretty much asked me to cosplay Suiseiseki to her Souseiseki, I had no idea what was going on at that time so I went along with it since some of our other friends had cosplayed before.

Technical first cosplay was random cat waitress thingy at DO 07. Official was Auckgeddon 07. I met Tammy first and scared her at DO. I then met Duckeh (at Auckgeddon 07 because we were from the same series) and the rest is history. <3

I started in 2002, at Wellygeddon. I was just getting into fandom at that point and didn't knowwhat cosplay was - I just saw the ad for the contest in the ad pamphlet and decided to enter. I picked Amazing Nurse Nanako, because of a piece of art I found in the pamphlet, and that was actually the worst idea ever omg. My mum helped make the costume and I can't believe she let me wear it! When I was researching the costume I stumbled on cosplayangel.com (which sadly is no more) and got into it from there. The next year I brought all my friends and made all their costumes, and that's how I got into cosplay. And commissions! I WAS SO BAD SOB

My first cosplay was Ichigo (Tokyo Mew Mew) at Wellygeddon '08. I had no idea about Armageddon before that, my friend told me about it & that there was a 'cosplay' competition, & I already was big on entering comps with my sewing so I whipped up an outfit!

I fully can't remember why I first cosplayed... I think it was a joke that just made the idea stick in my head, after seeing people cosplaying at CHCHgeddon 07.
My friends and I were going to have a group of us go as the Akatsuki to CHCHgeddon 08, but everybody else bailed. I (read; my nana, mum and sister) made my cloak and went along as a very very very very very crappy Deidara. Hung out with Bridget/James all day, and met Kibs, who inspired me to keep cosplaying. My cosplay career would have started and ended that day if I hadn't met her *A*

not counting the numerous dress up parties i attended as a child, or the fairy costume my grandmothers collaborated on for my third birthday(which inspired a nickname i still haven't bee able to shake), i dressed up as Aeris when i as about eight, although i had no idea what cosplay was. i made a Mugen cosplay when i was 15. i never wore it, and later cannibalised the jacket.

first time cosplaying as an established character, aware that what i was doing was cosplay, was at this death note double feature thing at the 2007 film festival, as L, which in hindsight was probably just an excuse to mutilate my hair.

^ that reminds me, I bumped into a cosplayer from 2005 wellygeddon comps the other day, she hadn't gone to geddon or touched cosplay since then. I can't believe she goes to my school! XDD Such a coincidence! She was my first see-costume-talk-instant-friend.

The only users I remember from 2005 was... Static in her hawt Ino costume & Chitara with Huntress as Labyrinth~

Last year, decided I wanted to go as Alyx from Half Life 2, dragged my boyfriend into being a Headcrab Zombie, and there you go.

While on the 'Geddon forums I found this site (I think it was in JVCA's sig?), and saw there was an A:TLA group. Well... Then came the fun part of 'learning' to sew.

I first cosplayed at Wellygeddon 08 as Gaara. A trip sponsored by my parents as my 20th birthday present XD
When I started making that costume I had no idea about cosplay. I mean I had seen pictures on the internet of people dressed up as characters but had no idea about the sort of 'culture' that comes with it.

The I found CNZ and it all went from there Very Happy
