I am 23, live in the U.S. and I have loved anime since I was 12, and loved Japan and Japanese culture since I was 7. I just completed my bachelor's degree last May and am working now and will continue to do so for two more years at which time I hope to be back in Japan as an ALT.
For now, I am hanging out and having fun! What are your twenties for? ^_^
My first cosplay was as Fuu from Samurai Champloo in March 2008 at StarCon. My second cosplay will be this year at Nan Desu Kan. I will be going as my favourite anime character, Sailor Mercury/Mizuno Ami.
I hope to being to make the whole of my costumes starting with Paprika (which shouldn't be too hard) this winter.
