I'm an avid Video Gamer and Japanophile, so I like Anime and Japanese Culture stuff. I'm also a Tech and Games writer working on magazines in Bournemouth
I always liked dressing up, and I had fun putting together an Ace Ventura costume for a party one time and thought it could be fun. Really wanted to do a Spike Spiegel costume (Bebop is my favourite Anime), and managed to get some semblance of one for Minamicon 14, my first con.
I seem to have a problem with paying too close attention to detail, resulting in hours of internet searching for the right angle on a reference photo, the right accessory, etc.
Haven't been able to do much since apart from a hat, but wanting to get some easy ones rolling to get me back into it.
