Hello! I'm a 31 y/o nerd who loves movies, reading, writing, nature, cupcakes...and dressing up. ;) As you can tell from my username, I love moomins - something else I never grew out of - and have a moomin tattoo on my left forearm.
I work at my local cinema, which means free films - just about the only perk of a minimum wage job, but a good one. My favourites include the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Pan's Labyrinth, Legally Blonde and most of Marvel's films.
I studied sound engineering at college and have a BSc in it. I really enjoy foley work and would love to work on sound effects/adr/post production for film, television, theatre or video games.
I've always been into dressing up - but only really been in the past couple of years that I've actually started cosplaying though! I also only attended my first con in 2013 (Collectormania in Glasgow), but now I'm hooked.
Because of our illusive friend Money, I cosplay on a tight budget, which means I can't always get things as 'screen accurate' as I want (I'm also really quite useless with a sewing machine) - but I do try as best I can with my limited resources and talents!
All of my projects are on hold atm, since it's a really quiet period at the cinema and I can say with absolute certainty that zero-hour contracts are evil and need to be outlawed. :(
