Well I'm mostly a musician - I sing and play piano, bass guitar and clarinet - but I was born with an inner geek which has slowly taken over my life. Music and fangirl stuff don't really mix so I guess I keep the two pretty separate.
My absolute favourite fandom of all time has got to be FINAL FANTASY - I'm mad about it, I buy all the games (even if I don't have the console yet) and play them over and over. I'm also into FF/Square Enix related stuff like Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Quest and all spin-offs/sequels etc. I love it all! I also like RPGs, Silent Hill, Devil May Cry, Metal Gear series and any video game that is generally quirky in a Japanese kinda way - Parappa the Rapper and Gregory Horror I'm looking at you...
I've been into anime ever since I saw Akira back in the 90s - I like all kinds but the BL stuff is my fave (especially Gravitation). I'm a fan of Studio Ghibli as well, not just the new ones, there are a lot of hidden gems in their past!
As for the big stuff, I'm a huge fan of Star Wars and Harry Potter, but then who isn't?
I haven't been at the whole cosplay thing very long. My first ever convention was Expo May 2007 and I saw so many people there in Final Fantasy costume that I couldn't believe it! The whole experience blew my mind so much that I thought I might like to give it a go. The following year I went to Expo as Zell Dincht (Final Fantasy VIII). Although it wasn't exactly a fantastic costume (being my first attempt) I got recognised so many times and enjoyed it so much that I became totally hooked. I'm now working on a Vivi Orunitia (Final Fantasy IX) for the next Expo; I must be true cosplayer now because this time I'm insisting on every detail being perfect - colours, fabrics, dimensions etc. Looks like crossplaying the secondary FF characters are my thing - who knew? Next time I might go as Wakka (Final Fantasy X) but that could prove really difficult.
