A Little About Me
I'm just a hardworking cosplayer just doing what I love. My only regret is that I didn't start sooner! I have so many cosplays planned for the future and each one starts with a love for the character.
Check out my cosplay page to see future cosplays and progress! I hope to see you at a convention soon and thank you for reading my entry! ^_^
Series: Digimon Tamers
Description: Sakuyamon was another strong, beautiful female character I fell in love with from the Digital World. Unfortunately, it was over 100°F at Otakon the day I wore this cosplay and some of it kind of melted off, but I'm still happy with the results and I am currently improving her for future conventions. Sakuyamon was debuted at Otakon '12.

Series: Digimon Adventure 1 and 2
Description: Angewomon was my first seemingly impossible cosplay that I tackled. She's beautiful, powerful, fights for justice, and was one of my absolute favorite characters as a child, so I knew I was going to cosplay her, whether I liked the process or not. The wings were the hardest part of the ensemble. While they took 40 hours to make, they were worth it. I made everything except the boots, which I commissioned and later modified myself. I'm very proud of my Angewomon cosplay and I love wearing it but I retired this cosplay as of Otakon '12. I will miss Angewomon but I'm hoping to revamp, repair, and rewear it at a convention in the future.

Character: Crimson Viper
Series: Street Fighter IV
Description: I loved the Crimson Viper from the get-go because of her fighting style and the duality of her background story. She has seemed to become my "trademark cosplay", according to my friends, which is appropriate since she takes the most commitment out of all of my cosplays that I've made: I constantly keep my real hair dyed red to achieve her mohawk-esque braided hairstyle. (I also use two long, red, clip extensions) My Crimson Viper cosplay was debuted at New York Comic Con '11 and has not yet been retired. I'm working on two of her alternate costumes right now, one from Street Fighter IV and one from Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. I'm planning on cosplaying at least half of her alternate costumes!
