I'm a Canadian student studying in the Norfolk area for the year. I'm majoring in Humanities with a Political Science minor.
I started about October of 2013 (so, a couple of months ago) with a society from the uni I'm at. We've got a KnB group sorted out and we're working on a Magi set as well.
Also, since I'm an exchange student, I don't have constant access to a sewing machine. I can only really work with fabric for 4-6 hours twice a week, wherein there's a handful of us sharing one machine [plus socializing/eating shenanigans]. It's all great fun.
My Deviantart/World Cosplay accounts are the same as here: VenShenanigans.
I'm also part of a group of cosplayers called DaydreamAdventurers. We have a profile on Deviantart as well.
