feel free to call me Cairdiuil which is my cosplay/nickname or Amy. I just graduated from college with a degree in Culture and Society studies and I am currently in my gap year, trying to discover what I want to do with my life but I think I found it. I see myself as very creative when it comes to crafts and ideas, I want to have a career something along the line in costume design, fashion, garment construction textiles.
I am the Cosplay Coordinator for a big anime, manga convention in Ireland called Eirtakon. I have been doing this since 2007 and I love it. I also try my best to help out with other anime and cosplay events in the country.
I am friendly, works hard, laid back, down to earth, open minded, caring and approachable. :)
I have been cosplaying since 2006 and I only got really into it last year. I enjoyed looking at artistic cosplayers on the internet and always wanted to be like these people. I always was attracted to art and artistic photography and looked at fan art images of anime/manga characters and wanted to mimic the picture or photo. I ways liked dressing up and would never miss a fancy dress event.
Bottom line, cosplay is my serious passion. All my life I have always been a natural born roleplayer and was involved with drama and a musical society. I liked acting as a hobbie and really enjoy applying this to my cosplays. When I am at a convention, I stay acting like my character through out and I really love putting a show on for people. I haven't entered many cosplay masquerades or skits but plan to in the future. I am not competitive at all and would only enter a masquerade to pretty much just show off my cosplay and act like my character on the stage, not to win. I also get a thrill when being on stage.
What I also love about cosplay is the creativity attached to it and the rewards I received. Cosplay made me a better, ambitious and confident person, because of cosplay I am getting better at doing make up and will be doing a dress making course so I can become a better costume maker. I feel I am going to go along way with it and it will bring many opportunities. I love the way it makes people happy and I always saw cosplay being similar to being a singer or a musician. I also love the fun it brings.
I do abit of cosplay modelling and would love to do more of this. I don't want to be a pretty girl in costume, I want to show people that I can act and play around and be really adventurous. I joined here hoping to meet cosplay photographers and other cosplayers, so we could collaborate, do fun shoots and make friends.
I plan on attending anime/cons abroad and attend London Expo in May, so if you are reading this and would be interested in a shoot, feel free to message me or Skype or msn me. :)
