I am a cockney who now lives in Manchester; but I get itchy feet so I travel a lot; so have lived in Houston, Durban, Cairns, Bangkok and Tokyo too.
I am an Engineer and work designing highways infrastructure and am a general all-round geek.
Started cosplaying about 3 or 4 years ago; started dressing up and prancing around my living room before I realised there was a whole commuinity of people like me out there!
My first cosplay was the Academy Hisagi Shuuhei from Bleach and since then I have done a whole bunch of charcters, mostly Naruto. I mainly buy rather than make my costumes as I dont really like sewing and have no room for a machine in my tiny flay, but I love making props and dyring/styling wigs and oher more hands-on/get dirty type things.
I don't really care if people have done my charcters a million time before, because I choose who I do based on how much I like them as charcters not to win some more-obscure-than-thou contest ^__^ Therefore you may notice a little bit of a theme in my charcters personality wise - so no points for guess what type of charcters make me melt into a puddle of orgasmic joy...
Check out my DeviantArt for cosplay journal and full gallery adn livejournal for more general life type stuff and my Japan trip traveljournal and photos.
I am also on cosplay.com with the same username.
