I'm pretty easy going, open minded and sociable and I like to try new things, cosplaying is a chance for me to escape how busy I am for a day or two a few times a year and to meet people with similar likes to me/hang out with the friends that I already have.
I'm on sites such as this to meet friends, look at other people's costumes and gain feeback on my own costume attempts. Everyone has their own reasons for cosplaying, mine are to make things, meet people and enjoy cons. I have a boyfriend so while I'd like to make friends here I'll never be looking for more than that with someone.

My first ever costume was Kiki (Kiki's delivery service), I made it to were to a party but it looked really bad and so I didn't want to wear it out of the house! I then bought my Sophie Hatter costume from a friend (S-Lawliet) and I loved it!! From there on I started to make my own costumes and gradually I'm trying to get better at making them
I'm lucky that I have made a lot of friends who cosplay and give me advice when I need it (which is pretty often)... I'm also part of a cosplay group called Loki UK with some lovely peeps, I've missed all of the group cosplays so far though! >.<
