You want to go into Cosplay, huh?
Well, there are many sources online for beginners in cosplay to get help. But the first mistake a lot of beginners make is their choice in costume. They usually choose one that looks way cool and has lots of details, that will usually cost a butt load of money to make.
Brunet Link, Fat ZeldaA beginner’s first cosplay(or maybe even second) should be a careful choice. You’ve gotta go into detail about the looks of that character you want to be. For instance, no-one would consider you Chi(from Chobits) if you were a brunet. So make sure that, for this 1st costume at least, you try to match your real-life self to this character before going into the designing department.
Have no idea who you wanna be, aren’t very good at sewing, or have a lousy budget? I have some easy costumes here that you might find around the house.

(Tip: Where it says “Lvl:Medium” that means it will be harder to find this outfit around the house/Or you might have to make 1 or 2 edits[hot glue,sewing,patching a symbol on, or just buying an accessory] to the outfit to make it look just right)
List of Characters

  • Lvl:Medium(w/ or w/o the jacket)– Edward Elric(FMA: Conquorer of Shambala) Property of MisaoHoh(Photobucket)
  • Winry Rockbell(FMA)
  • Shinbo(Chobits) or Lvl:Medium- Shinbo(Chobits)(make it harder by adding a Kotoko Plushie)
  • Misa Amane(Death Note)
  • Lvl:Medium- Tifa Lockheart(Final Fantasy VII 7)
  • Lvl:Medium- Reno(Final Fantasy VII 7)
  • Aerith(Kingdom Hearts 2)
  • Lvl:Medium(if you add the backpack)– Kagura Sohma(Fruits Basket)
  • Namine(Kingdom Hearts 2)
  • Asuka Yellow(Neon Genesis Evangelion)
  • Luffy(One Peice)
  • L (Death Note)
  • I know I haven’t gotten every single anime/manga listed on here. But if you think there is a character that might be easy to cosplay, please drop a comment!

    If you haven’t seen much anime, then you’re missing out.
    You don’t have to like romance or comedy, there are tons of genres for you to choose from. Action: Dragon Ball Z, Adventure: InuYasha, Mystery: Case Closed, Romance for girls(Shoujo): Fushigi Yuugi, Romance for boys(Shounen): Ah! My Goddess, Comedy: Great Teacher Onizuka, ect. It’s not just Saturday morning cartoons anymore.
    Not only are most classics subtitled in english, they’re also sometimes dubbed. If your main language isn’t english or japanese not to worry; most anime is subbed(or dubbed) in a variety of languages.
    Although there aren’t many ways to watch anime. There are 3 common ways of watching: cable, DVD, or internet. Most fans prefer to watch it online, because it’s usually free that way.
    In fact, most of the fans come from other countries than its home, Japan. You can see that when fans come together at anime conventions. You’ll meet some weird, obsessive, fans; wearing either exact replicas of their favorite characters or very opinionated clothes.
    Which takes me to another subject on the anime fandom: creativity. Most fans are very creative, in different ways. Some like to express their opinions through artwork. Others will design clothes and wear their creations in public to catch strangers attention. Or maybe you’re the type that likes to write, we’ve got two things for you: writing your own stories of the anime world, or roleplay.
    Now if you’re reading this and decide to become an anime fan you’ll need to know your vocabulary. ‘Otaku’s, another word for anime fans, have set up this lingo based on the japanese language and changed it to their liking. Common words they used are: kawaii, hentai, fanfic, cosplay, and doujin. Look em’ up.

    If you’re new to anime and have just finished this article all hyped up on info, then I have done my job! Now go out into the world with a new view on life and explore.

    (EDIT [2/7/11]: If you liked this article, check out the continuation: The History of Anime. It’s short and has all the basic facts you need.)

    Hi! My name’s Hannah (or Haimaru to my friends online) and I am the creator of HaiAato. Logo What does HaiAato mean exactally? Well, it’s Japanese. It’s basically the first particle of my name(which means ‘yes’) and ‘Aato’ is art. So if you ever see this companies name anywhere, it means ‘We say yes, to art!’

    What is this blog here for? I want to share all the information I can get on what otakus(or fans of Japanese-cartoons) like. And to help those creative people out there who want to make their own fan items. It is my personal mission to help all those fans out there to get what they paid for, and for cheap. That’s why every-once-in-awhile I will be posting up items that otakus are wanting to sell online. They will usually be home-made or used.

    My Picture of HaimaruWho is Hannah?

    I’ve been selling on Ebay and Amazon since I was 16 years old; and sometimes even earlier than that. Since I’ve had an interest in Japanese Cartoons I’ve been buying Dvds, video games, plushies, and making fan-costumes and fan-art; it started to accumulate after a couple of years. So eventually I had to sell some of the things I wasn’t using, or was grown-out-of. The products that have sold the most in the years have been my Pokemon Game Boy Advanced and DS games. Had a lot of fun playing them, and now I know others are having fun with them too. But some other products, that I think don’t always get what they are worth, would be the fan-made stuff: cosplay and artwork. I don’t know about you, but I work pretty hard making my costumes and art believable; if you walk up to it and recognize the character it was made after, right away, then that person has done their job. That’s what this organization is for: those hard-core anime fans that have old costumes that don’t fit anymore, or don’t have room for their merchandise and want to make some money off of it.

     

    Thanks for getting to know me and the company! Hope we’ll have lots of fun discussing topics together!

    Until then!

    ~Hannah
