I've been making my own clothing since 2001, but I first started customising my own clothing and making my own jewellery when I was about 10. The first anime cosplay costume I made was Witch Hunter Robin, as I was really excited to see a character with similar hair and glasses to me and felt I just had to do it!
I really enjoy making accurate costumes with a lot of technical work in them. I'm growing more interested in original costumes and historical based designs of late, as I can more easily encorporate corsetry which I so enjoy making. I think my proudest moment for cosplaying was my Rita Skeeter costume, as it was the first costume I'd made where I really got into character for, something I'd like to work more on in the future.
