I'm pretty much a full time Fangirl and Comic genius. Plus I suck a spelling, so sorry for any errors.
I've only recently started making all of my costumes. However the quest for a completed cosplay has allowed me to substantially up my skills in the craft. Going from someone who didnt know how to use a sewing machine to someone who could make a big dress really helps to show me that cosplay is a lot more practical than a lot of people think.
My very first cosplay was Riza Hawkeye and my most current one is Fairy Godmother (2015)
