Your first cosplay:
My first cosplay was actually of a Mandalorian from Star Wars. I have no clue why I decided to start out with a costume that was heavy on armor but I did and it absolutely killed me (I really had no clue what I was doing). I would not recommend a costume that has a large amount of armor for any beginner unless you’re ready to spend a LOT of time on it (seriously, it took me a year to do this costume). It didn’t turn out horrible, but I wasn’t satisfied with it so I redid it a year later. I actually swore off making any more cosplays after my first try because this one was so hard; obviously I didn’t stick to that. I used Sentra for the armor. Not for any specific reason. I could have used EVA foam… But I wasn’t aware that even existed at the time. I also didn’t have many friends into cosplay at the time so I never got any good pictures of my costume (hence why the featured image is a selfie in a bathroom… Wow, I was so lonely back then). The real point to this post, however, is that you will never be satisfied with your cosplay. You may redo a cosplay more than once as your skills progress. As of this year, it will be the third time I redo my Mandalorian armor.
Have fun, guys.
