Hi!! I would estimate I'm pretty average *shrugs* I like to read, I tend to stick to the same authors time and time again. I love the way books enable you to access a totally different world. Escapism I guess ^^; I also love the effort that goes in to creating worlds, for books and films alike, it's incredible. How can someone imagine something so completely, and then to have the talent to present it in such away that others can understand and empathise with the people within it. Mind boggling! I write every so often - poetry and lyrics mainly, but as I've got older it's taken a back seat to painting. I've started a couple of novels, but then the ideas run out half way through. I generally love being creative and try my hand at everything, painting, drawing, photography ... awww >.< I just get so enthusiastic about everything! Loads of ideas and so many ways to capture them! I love to sing (badly) and I love to dance though it's probably best if you stand clear ( I dance like a crazy fool!) I like getting ready to go out, the anticipation of a big event is great. Id love to think I have drive and ambition. I want to travel, I want to write, illustrate, direct, act, photograph, model, carve, sculpt, sing … so many things. I work in an office and I know it's not what I want to do for the rest of my life but I can't make up my mind just exactly what it is I want to go into. I rarely watch television but buy a lot of DVD's ... I listen to music all the time. I cannot live without it. I'm a bit of a boy >.< although I can be really girly I have mainly male friends. It's just the way things have panned out in recent years. I don't find myself minding or longing for the company of other girls though ... my friends are amazing, the best things to have happened to me. I'm a bit of a geek ... in fact, MASSIVE geek >_< I like games, I like sci-fi, bad horror, comics and pizza and on friday nights partake in a healthy dose of all of the above. I'm an atheist, but do not believe that not being a religious person stops me from being a spiritual person. I respect other peoples beliefs and admire them for putting their faith in something intangible. What's important to me is learning about and engaging with new people. Everyday's a school day!
I have always gone weak at the knees for fancy dress ... when I became interested in Japanese Pop Culture I discovered Cosplay and I was just blown away by how hard people work and the results they achieve. I like to think I'm very creative, I draw, paint and photograph ... I've decided that if I put my mind to it I don't see why anything would stop me putting that creativity into making awesome costumes. Except, I can't sew ^^; ... Still, I am determined to learn, I have lots of enthusiasm, a good eye for detail and a habit of being something of a perfectionist when it comes to anything I create. If I don't like it, I won't display it ... Oh, and I have a very helpful Mammy who is dead good at sewing - with her by my side, I cannot fail! I think Cosplay is more than exactly replicating a costume ... I realise this statment makes little sense. Of course it is about replicating the costume but I'll admit some cosplay bugs me, because the outfits don't look real ... Too blocky, or larger than life, I don't know .... My approach to Cosplay is that it's all going to be in the small details, to create a live action interpretation of that character and their clothing ... I'm hoping that on that side of things I'll be alright ... the role playing side ... I've less confidence about =S
