I currently study Psychology at university and in my spare time I make cosplays for fun. I enjoy sewing and have done for a fair while. As well as sewing though, I also do fire spinning, I play a bit of guitar and I write stories. I have a lot more hobbies that I dabble in here and there. I listen to a lot of rock/ metal music and I find costumes and music to be beautiful and inspirational.
I started in about year 9 when I started doing textiles at school and I discovered a talent for sewing. I'd always loved the idea of old fashioned dresses and gowns and I always felt the urge to wear or make one when I saw it. When I discovered anime I started looking at things like Chobits and cardcaptors sakura and the costumes were so beautiful I just wanted to wear one :)
So when I started going to expos because I loved anime...It was a MUST that I cosplay!
