University student, Cambridge. I like cosplaying, reading, writing and playing games. I also have a tendency to derp a lot with friends, in and out of cosplay xD
I started cosplaying in 2008, but didn't really start taking it seriously until a year or so later. I like to make my costumes as much as I can (unless a piece is a lot simpler to buy than make), even though I get really frustrated with sewing sometimes! I'm the awkward mix of perfectionist and procrastinator, so I often end up settling for less than I'd ideally like.
My biggest problem with cosplaying is that I have too many things I'd like to do, too many outfits I'd like to wear again, and not enough time or money to do them all. The woes of a cosplayer, I suppose 3
