A Little About Me

Growing up I've always been inspired by art and always enjoyed anime/manga. I started drawing in that style when I was 12 and would always seen magazines (Mainly NewType or Animerica) showing pictures of these people dressed in costumes and didn't fully understand it at the time.

But for my 18th birthday I decided to buy myself a present: Shana's (Shakugan no Shana) school uniform with the coat, who was at the time my favourite character from my favourite series (I still really love this series today however). I wanted to have something special to the series – not DVD, not a poster, but something that made me feel apart of the series – little did I know that was my first step into the world of cosplay. It wasn't until 2 years later that I attended my first con, and ever since then I've been hooked on the amazing creative process and the amazing wonderful people I meet at each and every one of them.

It's been a struggle to learn to sew, it's been a struggle with each and every project but in the end being able to look at what you've done and feel proud of it is the most rewarding experience ever. And I just want to thank all of the people who've been supporting me throughout all of this and encouraging me along every project, along every blood sweat and tears update and every frustrated update and I appreciate them more than I think they realize.

Description: Umineko was and is my favourite series for a vast multitude of reasons and by the time I got to the forth twilight I developed a deep connection with Beatrice and wanted nothing more than to pay homage to my favourite witch of all time. To me, Beatrice is a very special cosplay to me, I wear it to every con I can and it's one of my goals to portray her as well as possible.

Description: When I originally saw this series, I thought that Kuro Usagi's outfit was really adorable and that it'd be a lot of fun to make and run around hitting people with a fan – I never got to the “hitting people with fans” part though, probably wasn't a good idea.

Description: The first time I played Catherine I wasn't sure if I liked her or not, but as the game progressed I really found her character interesting and wanted to cosplay her – the only problem was how was I doing to make those curls? After many hours of struggling the dream became a reality.
