Personal Bio

Aside from cosplay, my biggest obsession is Dr. Who. Yes, I am a Whovian. Also, I'm pretty much addicted to my music. I don't think I would be able to cope without my iPod.... *is aware this sounds unbelievably sad*

So, yeah, I love to act and sing, and I LOVE Pokemon! In my spare time I make videos (mostly vlogs right now), act (a lot), sing (used to be in a choir, but now it's just for lulz) and hang out with my friends (some of whom are cosplayers).

I don't cosplay very much cause I lack money - and skills for sewing - but I have been to a few conventions. And, I've only posted my cosplays after a certain point (where they started to actually get good). I SERIOUSLY want to do a group cosplay from a series I know, but I never really get to cause I barely ever see my cosplay friends.

Cosplay Bio

My first cosplay was Saki Hanajima from Fruits Baskets, at my 13th birthday party (27.06.08). Since then, I've not actually made that many costumes, but am hoping to start making a lot more! I've only been to three conventions, Midlands MCM 2009 and 2 D-Cons in the Mays of 2010 and 2011, but I hope to do a lot more...

My proudest moment? Organising three summer meet-ups (2008 and 2009, and 2010) with all my cosplaying friends! Loads of fun! Either that or making the tail and ears for my gijinka Eevee cosplay for D-Con/the gijinka Umbreon costume I made for a friend for the school's sponsered walk.

I'm going to start my 'costumes' list at the point I think my costumes got reasonably okay, ie. 2009 summer meet-up.

Contact Information


I did have a cosplay.com account, but it was boring and no one I knew used it, so that lies dormant.... Same with my CosplayLab account....
