I'm 35 years old and I live in Devon with my husband and cat. I do mainly admin work for a living, and am an active member of my local Slimming World groups where I can be found manning the scales and organising various fun events throughout the year.
I came to cosplay when a joke got way out of hand! At my Slimming World group there was a competition coming up for Man of the Year. As I had won every prize up to that point I said I'd come to the meeting dressed as a man that week in order to win the prize. For a laugh a few of us did, and I decided to go as the ultimate Alpha Male, DCI Gene Hunt from Ashes to Ashes/Life on Mars. And thus began my somewhat odd obsession with crossplay... since then I've cosplayed as Gene at a party for our fan community in London, I'll be cosplaying again at Slimming World as part of a fundraising event for Red Nose Day, and I'll be cosplaying with my friend as characters from Demons (me taking another of Philip Glenister's characters there - Rupert Galvin) at Collectormania Midlands in April.
