Hello! Artist returning to cosplay after long absence XD
Hey there! I probably know quite a few of you as I go to pretty much all the anime-related events in the UK as an artist, but it's been a while since I last cosplayed (AnimeCon 2001, Liverpool) so it really was such a buzz to finally cosplay again (London MCM Expo Oct 2008).

I'm a big Trinity Blood fan, so aside from Abel (whom I mostly finished, just need to repair him in time for the Grand Cosplay Ball, hehe), expect to see more Toribura stuff from me in future!

If you want to know more about me or my dayjob, or my comic group, check the signatures, I won't bore you, ahaha. So that aside - pleased to meet you! *bows*

You are soooooo nice Uni ^w^

Ahh! I'm a little bashful about Romeo & Juliet these days, I am proud of it but it was drawn 3 years ago so I've improved a bit since then, hehe.

It was wonderful to see a Juliet cosplayer at the Expo though, I melted into a puddle of goo (with the arrow clips sticking out).

Thank you for the warm welcome ^___^

Fabulous, more Toribura makes me very happy ^_^ I enjoyed your Romeo and Juliet as well!

Welcome to the site

We probably kinda met at Expo at the weekend - I really can't remember everyone who was there, sorry! But regardless of that, I look forward to seeing you at the ball

(PS, I was Sally at the cosplay desk - if that rings any bells with you).

Shoot for the moon.
If you miss you'll be among the stars.

Hi Sonia!! I just saw the photos of your Trinity Blood costume, looks incredible, you must have worked really hard! I was sceptical about using your own hair with the colour spray but it looks great ^^

Lunar_kitten, no worries, I totally understand how you feel - whenever you're working a stand at these events there will be THOUSANDS of people who talk to you XD Thanks for the warm welcome.

Eeee, thank you Emily! ^w^ Haha, I'd heard the horror stories about using hairspray, but I used the same spray that my little brother used when he cosplayed Dante (Devil May Cry) and I saw from his photos that his hair came out perfect, so I trusted in him XD I got some very good advice from him and his hairdresser about how to spray hair well ^w^

I needed a very very patient husband to help with my hair, there's no way I can spray my hair myself if I want it to get that silver again XD

Hey! It's the Noelle from Expo- it was so nice meeting ou again and your Abel looked amazing!

Much love for R & J too!<3

I'm going to slash your pillow and tear out all the stuffing with a motorbike made of jelly.

...and that's what happens when you steal someone else's computer and forget to log out hehe. THIS is Noelle! Monkey was the Sora ^^

WAAAAAIII NOELLE!!! *run tackle glomp* I loved you, you were so hot XD

Esther, Noelle, I don't know who I'd pick XD

Ah, I hope that Sora wasn't too bored whilst we were taking all the photos XD (that Sora was awesome too, by the way)

Oops I forgot to reply to Odango - thank you very much *bows* I'm glad you liked Romeo & Juliet! I'll be working on another title for SelfMadeHero next year, watch this space, ohohohoho!

I feel so warm and fuzzy here, everyone is so nice ^w^

Kyaaa, can't wait until the Cosplay ball to meet up with everyone again!

We met at Alcon- I'm Tab the maker of Khaoskomix, and Ivy in the soul calibur skit.

Wished I had seen you at expo- I was looking for you!

Hello, Soina. Loved meeting you at Expo. Can't wait to see more of yout TB cosplays in the future. Your Abel is awesome. Love your artwork as well. I would love a career in art like yours but I have no clue where to even begin.

Sonia! *does a dance* welcome! I'm looking forward to seeing more of your cosplays after your AWESOME Abel at the MCM.

Tab!!! *squee* I saw you clomping down the stairs at Expo as Ivy, but I was going in the other direction (and you probably wouldn't have recognised me XD), the fates conspired T_T Will you make a collected volume of Khaoskomix in print at some point? I want it in my hands, to lovingly flick through pages!! XD

Sephirayne!!! <3 Thank you, it means so much coming from you when I know your accessories are going to be AMAZING when done O_O As for being an artist - a lot of it is luck and recommendations. Just like acting, it's not steady XD

James! How're you? I didn't realise you were on here! Sorry we couldn't chat for longer at Expo, I think we were both pretty tired by Sunday, hehe.

Kazz!! ^w^ Aw, thank you so much for the lovely welcome, hun! I HEART your entire deviantArt gallery, hope to see you again soon so we can chat properly!!! And OMG another fan of Janine from Ghostbusters!!! *w* I actually drew Ghostbusters doujinshi when I was a teenager before I became a professional XDD

Khaos is currently under the process of being gathered together before printing. It's annoying though because I drew my pages at a weird ratio, so I'm having to specially order them from an american company which does custom sizes. I could resize it.. but it does sound cool to have the comic at the exact size that I drew it at.

The first book will be Mark and Steve's stories smushed together, and it will be £5 plus postage.

...now that's enough me pimpage.

So sad I missed you at expo!
