I am Rom. I have amassed seriously ridiculous amounts of nicknames over the years, partly to do with characters I cosplay, but mostly I go by Rom.
I live in London, so I usually find a way to go to most conventions.
I love drawing, writing a bit, a lot of reading, and a bit of gaming.
I think I got into cosplay when I was around eleven/twelve, so that would have been shortly after I got majorly into anime/manga etc.
My first ever cosplay was Crona, from Soul Eater, which I wore to my very first expo >w< my father helped me make the sword, which bent throughout the day due to its size x'3
Since then my interest and love for it grew, and I've met so many new people and made a lot of new friends.
I adore the feeling of going to a convention in cosplay. It's not the same in plain clothes. If someone recognises your character [especially if they're quite obscure] that just makes it even better!
A lot of my cosplay-making consists of buying clothes and modding them, though I do sew a lot of stuff from scratch. I don't use any patterns, it's just me, a sewing machine, and tracing paper.
