One of those hobbies that requires buckets of passion, a flair for creativity and the confidence to show off your work, cosplay can be a daunting thing to get into. It’s the kind of thing you have to be prepared to devote tons of time and likely a fair bit of money to in order to get the most out of it. Once you’ve vaulted those hurdles, many cosplayers will tell you there’s hardly a more fulfilling hobby or more supportive community out there, even if you a little hesitant to jump in at the deep end first time round.
