I can still remember my sister going to her first Expo dressed as Haruhi, and thinking: "Is she really going out in that?!". Yes, I'm ashamed to admit that at first I was one of those judgemental types who had that that typical preconception of conventions and dressing up. Oh how foolish I was! Somehow she convinced me to tag along the next year, and ever since then I have never looked back! I fell in love with the whole thing, and vow to keep on cosplaying until I run out of costumes! (or money, depending on which comes first)


In general my role in the cosplay-making process is crafting accessories and props (as I am pants at sewing, I leave most of that to my sister). So far my most ambitious projects have been Kotake and Koumes' (LoZ OoT) head-dresses and Juliet Starling's (Lollipop Chainsaw) chainsaw, all of which took days of work, but I am dead chuffed with them! I'd say my speciality is working on a small scale with clay or fimo; I'm especially proud of the digivices I made for me and my sister for our Digimon group!


My all-time dream cosplays would be Samus Aran's Varia Suit (Metroid) and True form Midna (LoZ TP). I probably wouldn't be able to pull them off, for a start I'm not blue, but there's only one way to find out! I'm nowhere near that kind of cosplay standard yet, but give it a few years and I shall have a crack at it!
