I went to Anime Boston (my first anime convention ever...) and couldn't help but notice the awesomeness of the costumes. I've always been crazy about making costumes for Halloween, but I've never done an anime-based one.
I want to go to DragonCon this year and dress up so I actually fit in this time. I really want to go crazy and make an awesomely perfect and detailed costume.
I was just wondering if anyone else on here had experience with this and could answer some of my questions about cosplaying.
-I know there are contests- just how good does your costume have to be to win one of those?
-Does anyone have awesome pictures of costumes you've made? (And maybe details on how you executed them)
-What is better (for females): slutty, cutesy, or badass?
