I've attempted to cosplay, I wore a black trench coat and made my hair like Ed's and went to the mall with a friend. And soon me and my dad are gonna cosplay as hiei and Kurama.

So has anyone ever cosplayed at a convention?
whats it like?

It was fine, though you should choose your outfits that you are going to wear depending on how long you want to wear it and what the weather is like. For instance, if you want to wear your costume for a long time, then wear it the day of the convention.

Even little temperature differences can matter. Wear long sleeved costumes on the coolest days.

It sounds logic.

Yes, but you wouldn't believe how many people wear thick costumes on hot days, get all sweaty, and then DON'T SHOWER.

I've cosplayed 4 characters (4 being most recent)

1.Ryuichi (Gravitation)
2.Temari (Naruto)
3.Misa (Death Note)
4.Matt (Death Note)

and i'm planning to cosplay sasori from naruto. maybe ritsuka from loveless.....i just love the ears :)

cosplaying at conventions is so fun; if anybody recognises your costume you get glomped XD

and if its obvious you put in a lot of effort you get pictures taken.

or videos if your doing something really special

I've cosplayed as Yuuko Ichihara from XXXHolic, Maka from Soul Eater, and Lithuania and China from Hetalia.

I'm also planning to do a cosplay for England(Hetalia again) for the Anime Weekend Atlanta convention this September, along with Shuuka who is going as Canada :D

There are only two anime conventions I know of in australia, supernova and animania. Supernova is like sci fi, roleplaying, movies, anime etc and really big. Last year vic migona was there i read. The other one is animania which is very small (at sydney) but it has enough there. I wish there were anime stores where i was they only exist in melbourne and sydney here :(

My friend cosplays as Yuki. She doesn't have to wear a wig becuase her hair looks the same as her's.

Are wigs hard to make? i mean like finding a wing which is the right colour and then cutting it to the right size? Becuase im gonna cosplay as hiei my mum said that thw wig would be easy but somehow the idea of making a wig stick 25 odd cm in the air with just glue seems a bit daunting (if thats the right word)

Hmm, well, I don't think it's impossible to style a wig, it just involves a lot of work. For instance, while you're styling the wig, always look at pictures of Hiei's hair.

I'm not quite sure if you need a special styling gel or not, it seems that most gels wouldn't be up to the task of making huge spikes and having them stay there.
