Cosplay is a crazy craft; cosplayers all begin somewhere and the question is where? How does someone start cosplaying comfortably? Who can cosplay? What are the etiquettes behind cosplay and what does a cosplayer need to know? Can someone with an unsteady hand become a cosplayer? Can someone who has never sewn-up a hole create stunning works of art? What do you need to get started? In a series of mini-guides, I hope to quell some of these questions and more.
Growing up, I have always had the internet in my life. No, seriously – When I was younger, it was a little trickier to be connected, because it was expensive, but it was available to me at least from when I was in the later years of my primary (elementary) school. As such, I’ve spent much of my life using and perusing the many files that make up the world wide web, so it’s a subject close to my heart.
In this post, I look to expose a few of the major web technologies that are out there, so you know just how the internet is made up and why we do a few weird things on the internet. Weird things such as these tags enclosed in the less than and more than symbols (<tag>, for example). I’m going to explain the uses of each of the technologies then at the end, explain how you can learn more for free.
