I first started cosplaying back in 2006, but my passion for 'dressing up' has existed ever since I was young! I got into 'real' cosplaying after going to my first con, and realised just how fun it must be to be dressed up like your favourite character for a day. I tried it at my next con, and I was hooked. From that day forward, I was never the same =P

The thing I love most about cosplay is the challenge it poses, the ups and downs of creating a costume. Also the sense of community the you can get only from a hobby like this one, both on the day, and on sites like this one! I mostly choose to cosplay characters I adore, but I'm game to cosplay anyone really, as long as their outfit poses a challenge to construct and I have a great time wearing it on the day!

My proudest moment and greatest achievement have been without a doubt winning the Collectormania 13 after-party competition. I entered as Mrs Lovett from Sweeney Todd, and came first place! I had the privilege of dueting 'A Little Priest' on stage with Torchwood's Kai Owen. I was a very, very happy bunny =3

wings-of-crimson - Kuro - 12th April 2009


So it's five days 'til Kitacon. Is this costume complete? No way! I wouldn't want to ruin the traditional last minute con rush, would I now? XD

Alex is working hard on the coffin, and it's looking great so far. Hopefully I can get some progress shots up soon. In terms of the costume itself, the coat's still in fabric-form and there is no hat to speak of. I managed to find myself some good shoes though (that cost me £10 rather than the £80 I initially had my eye on!), and my wig's cut and ready for action. The most I've actually done so far is spent time cutting out the template for a Sen plushie =3
Seeing as I seem to have misplaced my sewing needles, he's currently still in the template form.

So, I have four days remaining. 3 of which I'm at work. Wow, can anybody say 'stress'?
