Today (Feb. 18/19 2008) I embark on a rather youthful quest: to complete my Rock Lee (Naruto: Shippuuden) cosplay and my sister's Neji Hyuuga (Naruto: Shippuuden) cosplay by July 2008's San Diego Comic Con. Everything will hopefully be made from scratch.
But this compendium attempts to do much more than just highlight one (first time) cosplayer/amateur seamstress' journey towards destiny. I'll do my best to leave you with tips and tricks (some learned the hard way: through overcoming failure), links to tutorials I find helpful, and patterns and tutorials of my own.
I hope this might help anyone else who ever wishes to complete any cosplay/costuming endeavor. Good luck, may the Force be with you.
