Remember when you found that cane on eBay and thought it would really make a good prop for your First Doctor cosplay? Or saw someone wearing a handsome pair of wingtip spectator shoes that could be a perfect start on a Seventh Doctor? Whether a bit of flotsam on the road that could be useful for crafting a Cyberman, or a stash of pink wool that would make a great Romana II outfit, cosplay always starts somewhere personal. We’re taking a deep dive this year into the inspirations behind the world of cosplay, a journey through the stories (told by our panelists and audience members) about how they got started in this crazy hobby.
