Do I just head to conventions in a costume?

I don't know anyone to go with, should I just show up by myself?
Do i need to create a costume from scratch or can I buy one online?
Is it an accepting community and will i quickly meet people who will help me understand it more?

You need to sacrifice your first-born on the night of a full moon at an orifice located due east from you. Only then you you truly become a cosplayer.

Just be yourself man.

LOL. No.

How do you get into any hobby? Just do it. Cosplay is just putting on a costume of a character. Some people have higher standards with craftsmanship and will like to make their on shit, while others will prioritize the more model/actor aspect and buy their shit.

And yes, you can show up by yourself. Why wouldn't you be?

It is a very harsh community for the most part. You WILL be judged. But don't worry too much if your first cosplay is trash; everybody starts at the bottom.
>>
Honestly everyone is super judgemental, I'm trash and I'm like the most critical person I know ( usually about myself desu.) but I found it quite easy to make friends? In terms of mAking friends don't just walk up to the big league 50k follower people, talk to a few people ( groups for the series you're cosplaying as is great, I made my first friends at a marvel shoot and as I became more known of in my comm I didn't need to go to said meets more to network.)
>>
Cgl scared me into thinking the whole cosplay scene was really judgemental, but unless you're Yaya or Nigri, no one really gives a shit.
>>

If you cosplay, even something super simple, people will love you. You usually don't need to know people there, it is usually easy to meet people when you are in cosplay.

Pretty much

>I don't know anyone to go with, should I just show up by myself?

Sure, why not?

>Do i need to create a costume from scratch or can I buy one online?

Buying a costume is frowned upon, generally. However, buy elements or parts generally isn't.

For example: Buying a Power Ranger costumes is a no. But buying a leather coat to play Tony Stark isn't. Usually.

>Is it an accepting community and will i quickly meet people who will help me understand it more?

No and No. But, good helpful people are out there. People who don't help aren't worth your time, obviously.

What this guy said, don't half ass. Pick some thing simple to start. your first costume won't be Ironman.

Read, read, read. They are communities out there: The RPF, the 501st, the 405th. Youtube is your friend.

Good luck.
