I've been cosplaying since summer of 2003. Before then, my favorite holiday was always Halloween, so when I discovered I could dress up for events happening year-round I was completely sold. And, of course, I am a complete and utter nerd.
Recently, most of my cosplay is video-game and scifi based, mostly because I just don't have the time I used to. I'm currently set to receive my MFA in Costume Design from UCLA in June 2014. My current cosplay strengths lie in tailoring, pattern creation and manipulation, and wig design.
