I am a twenty-something (for a little while longer at least) who is finally starting to hit something approaching a proper job, I work in telecoms which is alright, my team is pretty awesome so that's always good. My ideal job is still in acting or performing, but I'm pretty settled where I am.
I also enjoy RP (of the online-based, tabletop and LARP varieties), writing, singing, reading, sci-fi and fantasy, the internet, burlesque... and of course anime.
I currently live in Glasgow with my wife, the most wonderful woman in the world - or at least I like to think so :D I love her to pieces, and the story of how we met is a little lengthy and terribly dorky so I won't share here - but I'm more than happy to share if anybody asks XD
I had hoped to start cosplaying with some friends at our very first convention, Minami 12 way back in 2006, but we had no idea what we were doing and never got round to it in time.
I did, however, manage it for Minami 13 (though technically, my first cosplay was the Doctor, at Midlands Expo a month beforehand) - where I cosplayed Seras Victoria, Lirin from Saiyuki and Duo from Gundam Wing.
Ever since then I've thrown myself into it, I absolutely LOVE cosplay so much, and I'd like to think my costumes get better every time - or at least I hope they do! I'm always learning new things.
I'm still not at a point where I'm really happy with most of my costumes, but I'm starting to be confident enough about them to want to wear them again - something I never did at first.

Okay so here's a list of my cosplay plans for coming events. I'm not doing all that much, not going to make it to what few cons remain in the year. MAY make it to October expo but it's a big if.
Kita is a definite yes, but beyond that I'm not sure.
I'm going to do my level best to make it to more this year.
October Expo (If I make it)
Rapunzel - Finale Dress - Tangled - Ball (If there is one. Half a day if there isn't)
Pinkie Pie - Galloping Gala Gijinka - My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - Parties

Tulio - Normal - Road to Eldorado - Day unconfirmed
Cornelia - R2 variant - Code Geass - Day unconfirmed
