I'm originally from Canada, but I've been living in the UK for about 10 years now. Most of my family is in the UK and Canada, but my little brother lives in Japan with my Dad. He's adorable <3
I'm currently working towards going back to university in 2012, but in the mean time I plan on living life to the full and cosplaying my little heart out. I love going to cosplay events and meeting new people, so give me a shout if you see me! :D
You could say I started cosplaying in 1997 when my mom made me a Sailor Moon costume for Halloween, or you could say I first started cosplaying when I went to my first convention, Aya Returns 2002.
Probably my favourite part of making costumes is the sense of accomplishment you have when you finish something, you look at it and think "that actually looks quite good :O!". And once I've finished a costume (and I've finished making dumb poses at myself in the mirror) going to conventions is awesome~ just hanging out in costume with friends and other cosplayers is so much fun! After attending cosplay events in Japan I've now also completely fallen in love with cosplay photography, and I'm slowly improving with each shot I take. :D
