Well, where do I start?

Torchwood - I REALLY love this series (though: in my mind I just leave 'Miracle Day' out. xD) and I watched every single episode. I own the DVD's, the Soundtrack and even some of the magazines and books. One of my most precious posessions are the 'Torchwood Archives'! =)

Gwen, as I have to admit, is not my favourite character in the entire series. Actually, there have been times I really disliked her. So why cosplay her? First of all - her clothes in this poster. I already had some of them, and the rest looked pretty neat, so I wanted to have them. And then I thought 'When I have the clothes already, I could as well try for a wig and see how it looks'. Bleh.. this kinda sounds like a bad reason to cosplay someone, right? xD

Well, later in the series I started to like her more and more, though she will never be my favourite. But I still wanted to try if I can cosplay her. I could never do Owen, for example, that would never look really good. So I looked for someone I could pull off. And then my eyes fell on Gwen.
And when I knew that I'd go to Cardiff for two months - where Torchwood had been filmed - I just packed the wig and the clothes and gave it a try. Because, well, what scenery is better than this here? ;)

Blah.. sorry for my rambling here. Is anyone going to read this anyway? xD
