I made a video last night, giving out the most important advice to any cosplayer: Practicing your Google Fu.

If you want to cosplay, you have to commit to doing research. For hours. Days. Weeks! The internet is full of answers to your questions, there are tutorials on how to make XYZ, youtube videos teaching you new skills, experienced cosplayers tallking in detail about how they made their costumes, where to get the best materials... The information you need is out there and if you practice your Google Fu, you will learn how to make costumes.
There are no shortcuts, you have to do your research. And enjoy that process. Be curious and inquisitive and adventurous! Have fun learning! Then put your knowledge to the test and make a costume. It's an incredibly rewarding and fun thing, and if you are a Google Fu master, half of your costume work is already done!!

Practice that Google Fu.

Personally, I'd rather use the DuckDuckGo search engine = Duck Fu (which actually sounds better, I think)
