I'm an 19 year old uni student studying Graphic Design. I also have two jobs.
It's all very exiting.
I fill my life with all sorts of exiting things like dancing and singing in inappropriate places and moments, travelling,watching youtube way too much, playing games way too much, playing DDR way too much and drinking way too much coffee.
Iv'e always loved dressing up and creating things, and i've loved anime/manga/games etc for quite a while now so it's obvious why I like cosplaying!
Technically my first time cosplaying was when I was in Junior school; I went to school dressed as Jessie (from Team Rocket). Even before I'd heard the term "Cosplay". Yes, I got some weird looks but I've never felt cooler!
Since then I've gotten better at making costumes and I feel that I can only get better with time and practice!
I especially enjoy the community feel of cosplaying, it is a great way to make new friends.
