Cosplayer, graphic designer, costume designer, artist, aspiring actress and Japanese dancer, I have been in the hobby since I was 12. Now, I wish to further my skills and experience and join the industry, fabricating costumes and going further into acting. Entertaining audiences is my passion and I have been doing so since I was seven, starting out in ballet and tap and moving into Tae Kwon Do and Nihon Buyou.
I love to help guide cosplayers through their journey all the while putting on entertaining and fantastical events. I love the cosplay community and even dedicated her senior thesis to researching controversies in the community and how to help prevent controversies and arguments from putting a gap in the community. I strongly believe that cosplay is for everyone and strive to create a more inclusive community for cosplayers. Cosplay is about fun and passion and no one get’s left behind!
My cosplays include anime (Vampire Knight, Kuroshitsuji, Barajou no Kiss, and more), video games (such as Final Fantasy and Skyrim), and comic characters such as Loki and Harley Quinn, faeries, steam punk and Celtic Mythology (The Dagda).
On top of acting and costuming, I have a deep love for Japanese culture and language, and conducted research in Japan, traveling to Nagasaki, Tokyo, Osaka, Kobe, Kyoto, Nara and Hiroshima. A couple of months later, I once again returned to Osaka to study for a year until June 2012.
