I am a cosplayer and costume designer currently living in the Seattle area. I have only been officially cosplaying since 2009 but I have been creating costumes and replicas since 2002.
I create costumes because I am passionate about bringing characters off the screen and into the real world.
The majority of the skills I have acquired through this hobby have been completely self taught through vigorous and diligent research.
