Hey, I'm Alice - I'm an ex-Maths student from Royal Holloway, University of London, having graduated in 2012.
I'm obsessed with Doctor Who (to the point that many people despair of me!) but my other fandoms include Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings/Hobbit and Ouran High School Host Club.
Other than cosplaying, in my free time I like to play my clarinet, do roleplays via MSN (as the Tenth Doctor), crochet, cross stitch, read, do baking (nom nom cake!), write fan fiction, draw when the mood takes me, take photographs and do Fencing (which is something I should really incorporate into my cosplay)...
I'm quite new to the cosplay scene, but I'm slowly learning, and have enjoyed starting to make my own costumes, rather than the bought things I've used before. I always enjoyed dressing up as a child, but I started to cosplay properly before my first MCM expo - what I thought would be an easy costume to get hold of (I would never have imagined it would be so hard to find a plain black hoodie) and have been wanting to do more ever since! I have now made 3 costume parts, and looking forward to expanding my repertoire, especially given how amazingly successful the coat for my Tenth Doctor cosplay was.
The thing I've most enjoyed about cosplay is the people I've met, and the fun times I have with others cosplaying from the same fandom.
Conventions I've attended:
London MCM Expo May 2010 (Saturday - The Master, End of Time version)
London MCM Expo May 2011 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday - The Tenth Doctor)
Entertainment Media Show (Collectormania) October 2011 (Sunday - The Tenth Doctor)
London MCM Expo May 2012 (Friday - Tenth Doctor, Saturday - Lucy Saxon, Sunday - Ravenclaw student)
