I work at a big craft store which is a heaven for someone like myself! I'm often working on costumes and when I'm not I'm crafting! I have a degree in Animal Science but my passion for crafts and costuming has steered me into a different direction. I haven't forgotten my animal friends though <3 I'm currently just enjoying life and allowing my creativity to run wild!
I began cosplaying back in 2007 (jeez that seems like only yesterday) I was first introduced to Cosplay through NEO magazine, it really caught my eye and before I knew it a fabulous new hobby formed. October 2007 was my first ever Anime,game, movie event, and I just had to cosplay. I slaved away on my first costume, scouring through charity and fabric shops, to make something resembling Tifa Lockhart's Advent Children attire (which I late updated) My first experience of MCM Expo was amazing, and I've been hooked on cosplay (and conventions) ever since <3
