I started cosplaying in 2007, I feel in love with Padme's lake dress from Star Wars attack of the clones. I had only a little sewing experience so had mum to help me as she taught me some things growing up. I had to learn to dye fabric which i'd never done before and loved dyeing the dress. After I that I went crazy as i'd always loved big ball gowns with those big crinoline hoops growing up.
I have taken time to learn better and have entered many cosplay comp's including:-
Collecotrmainia cosplay Ocotber 2007 Padme Picnic Dress, First prize
Collectormainia cosplay 2008 Padme Lake Dress, First Prize
Collectormainia cosplay 2009 Padme Packing Gown, First Prize

I am better at making the costumes than going on the stage I feel, though this year I was even more confident. I now have 13 costumes made over the last 5 years. I have NO professional training in sewing, all has been taught to me over the years by mum. I had 6 sewing lessons by a teacher last year, but cost me to much so had to leave.
