This book is a great tool for anyone looking to enter the world of cosplay and comic cons. It gives great advice on the cosplay process, from beginning to end.
What's great about this book is that it is split up into twelve chapters and they are not overly long, so it makes for an easy read. Also there is humor sprinkled throughout the book so it makes for a very enjoyable read. I liked that it was informative while also being funny and light hearted at the same time.
As mentioned before there are twelve chapters. Each chapter covers a specific topic, such as choosing a cosplay, where and how to find materials for your cosplay, how to accessorize your cosplay, getting into your cosplay persona, the different types of conventions that exist, what to expect while at a convention, proper convention etiquitte, and much more....all valuable tools for anybody who is new to the comic con world. My favorite chapters are the ones that discuss proper con etquitte and how to protect yourself from the hidden dangers that can sometimes exist in the comic con world, valuable info for cosplayers and attendees alike. I also enjoyed the main theme of the book, which is that no matter whether you make your own cosplay, buy it, or have somebody make it for you, or whether you're a beginner cosplayer or a seasoned pro, each person deserves to be treated with respect as a cosplayer.
In conclusion, I recommend purchasing this book. Its a great value for the price and great for beginners and seasoned con-goers alike.
