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
