Crossplay diva, Office worker, occasional goth, tabletop roleplayer, and amateur jeweller.
Enthusiastic about diversity, clever films, passion in music, and Lego.
I'm also looking for a clever name or acronym for my campaign to encourage people to cosplay as characters they like, and not care about who they suit or who is popular (and therefore stop spamming websites with "who do I look like" posts) ;-)
Cosplay groups I'd like to do:
* 2000AD/Judge Dredd
* Monster High
* Monkey/Saiyuki (1970s TV version)
* Oban Star Racers
I used to go to anime conventions in the early 1990s, back when Ayacon had single digit masquerade entries! I went to all the workshops on cosplay, and researched costumes, but my skills were not up to it. I stopped going to cons when my interest in anime (and fandom) waned.
In 2010 my girlfriend and her mates introduced my to Axis Powers Hetalia, and when I was good and hooked they told me they were all going to cosplay from the show. When they pestered me into joining them, I jokingly suggested going as Belarus. They thought this was awesome and supported me all the way.
As a result I finally learned how to use my sewing machine, and with assistance from my GF and my mum, I made the costume in my gallery.
These days I'm mainly focussing on Western characters. Particularly interesting crossplays, and amusingly cheesy characters.
