Hey there! My name's Leonie, also known as Leo =P At 27 years of age I am a bubbly, romantic and day-dreaming Piscean who gets excited like a child when visiting the Disney store.
I am a cosplayer and this is my main hobby and what most of my spare money goes towards. I really enjoy getting to be someone else for a day and the social side that comes with it. I have met so many amazing people thanks to cosplaying.
My main "obsession" is Final Fantasy VIII and Rinoa Heartilly in particular. I collect merchandise from the game and it's my goal to cosplay all versions of Rinoa. Over the last year or so I've also become quite a big fan of Resident Evil. I've always loved the films but now I own all the games apart from Gaiden.
I am a very emotional person by nature and suffer from depression at times so I am very grateful to those who support me through my bad patches and are there to make me smile again =)
I love my bed and I never seem to get enough sleep. I'm even happier when I have someone to snuggle up to.
I've been told I'm a bit strange or act like a freak sometimes but ah well I don't care that's just me x3
That enough to go on? xXx
I have been cosplaying since October 07 and my first hand-made costume was KHII Kairi made in 2009.
I'm a picky cosplayer. The type that will fuss over all the little details and isn't happy if something isn't quite right. This means I would be happier with one accurate costume over 3 that weren't so correct. I would rather buy a costume than make it if I felt my effort wouldn't be accurate enough. An example is my Rinoa boots had to have exactly 5 shoe-lace holes but she only ties them up to the 4th.
Yes I'm a tad picky XD
My dream cosplay is the Dead Fantasy version of Rinoa and it is my aim to cosplay all versions of Miss Rinoa Heartilly as I love her character (if my username didn't give that away).
