I'm currently a student doing a Foundation Degree in Graphic Design with Interactive Multimedia at the City of Bristol College. I like to make banners and such for fun :) I love gaming and I've been gaming for most of my life! I do tend to stick to my RPG's though but I will also play action/adventure and platformers. My current top 5 is...
1. Persona 4 (PS2)
2. Final Fantasy IX (PS1)
=. Okami (PS2)
4. The World Ends With You (DS)
5. Tales of the Abyss
Of course I'm also a manga and anime fan although I do prefer manga. My favourite series by FAR is Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles! I adore Syaoran (all of them!) who is my favourite character :)
My friend got me into cosplay who had tried it out before me, although it was something I had wanted to do! I've not been cosplaying for very long at all yet and my first big event was London May 2009 MCM Expo! I hope to make alot more costumes in the future though and I hope that I get better :D
I've found that cosplaying has done wonders for my confidence and it's still growing all the time. Although I am still a very shy person at heart, once I get to know you I begin to relax you can see how I really am once you get past the first shy stage :)
I still consider myself a beginner. I very often need help, espescially when approaching new techniques!
I have still yet to learn the art of wig styling. When I start earning money after uni, it is the first thing I will do, as I can then afford to mess up a wig and buy a new one!
I'm also probably going to be "Crossplaying" alot. Why? I find that I like male characters more, although I'm not really sure I suit them.
Since I've made a few costumes now I've discovered a few of my habits.
1. I'm a bit of a perfectionist! I have to have everything perfect or at least as close as I can get it.
2. I'm a very slow worker, it takes me ages to get anything done.
3. I have a TERRIBLE habit of tilting my head in photos for some reason! If you're taking a photo of me and I'm tilting my head, please for the love of god stop me XD
