I love video games mainly, but also like anime, manga, books, films, etc - pretty much anything with some form of escapism. I do 3d computer art stuff, while also making costumes and whatnot. In my spare time I also play the flute and follow fluffy dogs around.
I started far too many years ago, but it was only in the last three or so years that I started learning how to sew and make my own costumes. In that times I've set myself increasingly difficult challenges, but I've yet to put myself off cosplaying. I mainly cosplay from video games, and tend to pick based on the outfit as much as the character I'd get to portray.
