Hi, I'm Laura! I think I've been sewing for over 10 years now.. I started cosplaying around 1998 (and wore cosplay to my first convention in 2002) but I didn't start cosplaying more consistently until 2010. I learned pattern drafting and costume construction in school, so I make most of my costumes (and sometimes clothing) from scratch. My other hobby is lolita fashion. I make some of my dresses but I really love Angelic Pretty and Baby, so I wear those too!
