anyway, just to get the basics right. when, where & how can i do something vaguely resembling cosplay in australia or in the world?
for any particularly event, is it more manga-based or period-costume-based? are there anything resembling large gatherings of romantic goths where i can make some money with a bit of fashion designing work?
as for designing: do i need a tertiary degree? if not, when, where & how can i start? is it better to start by selling on ebay or local markets? if anyone has experiences in these, please help!
