I'm a northern lass; I love anime and manga. I also enjoy sci-fi and fantasy, particularly Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Buffy and the like. Some of my favourite authors include Roald Dahl, Alfred Bester, Kurt Vonnegut, Ray Bradbury, Daniel Keyes, J.K. Rowling etc.
I also enjoy American comics like Spider-Girl, Runaways, and Scott Pilgrim. I really enjoyed Paul Cornell's Captain Britain and the MI:13 (I should have bought the issues I know but manga has influenced my ways so I usually buy trade paperbacks).
When I registered for my first convention (Aya '09) I realised that had the urge to cosplay! I've relied on a mix of e-Bay and family and friends who have sewing abilities up till now, but I got a sewing machine for Christmas 2010 and I am trying my hand at making things myself!
