Life-time Streets of Rage fan ;)
Hurlo! I'm Irish / English. A single parent to a gorgeous 'lil lad. Part-time administrator, assistant youth leader, amatuer fiction writer & costume maker. (Now that I'm getting more into cosplay you can expect some old skool video game characters to come to life reeeeeeeeeal soon ;) ha!) I love comic books, mostly Uncanny X-Men. I'm an old school gamer, mainly from the Sega Genesis era, but I'll throw a bit of Capcom in there too. I'm a christian, late twenties, and I looooooooove the 90's; the cheesy pop songs 'n dance combos (the kind that appeared on Smash Hits and TOTP), the fashion (think Clarissa Explains It All), video game movies (Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, aaaaahhhh!!) & Nickelodeon tv shows (Saved By The Bell, Are You Afraid Of The Dark, California Dreams - love love love it!!) I'm in love with them all - I'm a retro valentine :P

While I adore the really extravagant costumes that have cost half a months rent, I personally can't afford such things. I think accuracy should always be important if you want to really look like and portray a particular character, but I don't think those on a low budget should feel left out. With cheap crafts, clothes and your own imaginative ideas you can usually put together a pretty cool cosplay. I'm on here to share my own and hopefully spark a little inspiration....
This after-school special has now finished :P
