I have been a cosplayer since May 2011 and have continued to do so ever since. Little did I know that I would continue doing so even to the point where I would dress up as a character of the opposite gender. I found cosplay to be an activity where I can disregard the constraints of reality. I still consider myself a novice as I do not typically make my own outfits, but I do plan to take on DIY projects for future cosplays.
I have also taken up photography since April 2012. I typically do spontaneous, figure, macro, and portrait photography as well as some photojournalism for events and such. To be honest, I tend to shy away from getting my picture taken when I'm not in cosplay.
I am an avid player of trading card games as well, particularly Yu-Gi-Oh! and Cardfight!! Vanguard and a contributor to the website, Trigger Capital, which specializes in the latter.
I am a contributor for Mission Start Podcast, a webzine for anything related to anime, video games, conventions, and the like, so I'll put links to anything I write for that website onto my journal.
You can find me at a good number of conventions throughout Northern and Southern California. If you have any suggestions, requests, or anything of the sort, don't be hesitant about them. I would really appreciate tips and critique as well for I am still relatively new to both cosplay and photography.
