I come from the small town of Biggleswade in Bedfordshire.
I graduated from Uni about a year ago and have a 2:1 BA HONS IN History and Philosophy.
I have been singing for over 18 years and I have the biggest love for musical theatre, my all time favourite musical is The Phantom of the Opera. Which I am cosplaying from this October =D so excited hehe.
I have always been a creative and a bit of a day dreamer. I have been making cosplays and attending Anime Expos for over eight years now. I attended my first expo over eight years ago unaware of what to expect. And the cosplay bug bit me.
Since then I have been exploring ways to improve my skills and make prettier and more impressive cosplays.
I simply love making things. I often attend expos on my own but I would love to make some cosplay friends who I could travel with and maybe even cosplay with. I am very shy but once in a costume, I think its when I truly come alive.
I have been modelling for 5 years and also been doing my own Photography for 2, Check out Event Horizon Photography on facebook for examples. I usually go around with my camera at expos, taking pics and also having pictures taken of me. I enjoy being both sides of the lens.
I have been a Radio Host and also part of a few Drama groups.
I would describe myself as dreamer but very huggable :)
I have been cosplaying for around 7 years. In that time I have won 6 awards including, best costume MCM London 2013, best performance MCM Brum 2014, Runner up Solo rep Ecg 2014 and Best Performance at Camcon 2014. Solo winner Hyper Japan xmas 2014 and ECG UK Solo rep 2016 :)
I am overjoyed to finally achieve my dream of representing the UK in an international event. I cannot wait to perform at Japan expo and also make the costume.
I want to keep learning and improving and I want to simply enjoy the animes/ musicals/ games I love. I do not consider myself good at cosplay or a pro.. because I am not.
I believe anyone can do what they love and there is no correct one way to do things <3
Be what you love and do what makes you smile.
I will keep cosplaying as long as I keep on smiling.
