24 years old, currently based in South Croydon and working in construction.
Well, I've been attending conventions since I was 16, but didn't really get involved in the more otaku ones until about 2 years later. Since then, I thought that it'd be awesome to do cosplay, but doubted if I'd ever get into it myself, since most of the costumes I saw were more works of art.
With this in mind, my first costume was an ebay purchase. As a result, I never entered into any competitions, believing that I didn't have the right to stand alongside other who'd poured so much effort and dedication into their cosplays.
Having said that, I'm 6 cosplays in now and going strong with each new project becoming a synonym for constant growth, adaptation and learning.
For the record, none of the photos on my page are mine. Where possible I credit the owner/photographer.
