I am an eccentric person who enjoys a great number of things.
I'm currently a full time student studying my 3rd year in Prop Design & Special Effects and thoroughly enjoy it!
I am an avid fan of music and have a very diverse and eclectic taste in music ranging from Heavy Metal, Pop, Opera, Rap, Choral Music, to Movie and Video Game Soundtracks.

My biggest hobby is Cosplay, though I am still a bit of a n00b since I only got into it back in the summer of 2010, but I really enjoy being able to create something from nothing and being able to share it with like minded people at Conventions and discuss/swap tips and techniques.

I also take on Prop Commissions.

SO a lot happened in 2012 for me, started taking on prop commissions, worked on a large scale movie, moved house, started my 2nd year of Uni, and made my most successful cosplay to date.

My Kuma cosplay took around 4 months to create and cost me about £300, but in the end it was all worth it as this cosplay pushed me  to expand on my skills such as  Armor making, Fibreglass, Carving/Sculpting and Electronics but on a much larger scale.
I debuted Kuma at the October MCM Expo in London and he was really well received by everyone and pleasantly surprised quite a few people with our Afro Samurai Group, with Joseph as Afro and Liana as Lady Sio - who both rocked!

I entered into the Sunday Masquerade and ended up winning 'Best in Show' much to my disbelief, and then was told that I should enter into the ECG Qualifier at Hyper Japan at the end of November - and WON - so I'm now the UK 'SOLO' Representative for the European Cosplay Gathering (ECG) Finals at Japan Expo in Paris!
I also ended up winning the NEO Magazine 'Cosplay Idol' competition and was featured in the Magazine.

SO for 2013 my plans are to focus mainly on Uni and my cosplay for the ECG Finals, so I shan't be taking on any commissions till July.
I am planning on attending May MCM Expo, If I have the time I plan to cosplay as Seifer Almasy as part of a large Final Fantasy VIII Group, if not I shall most probably either re-wear my Cloud Strife or Squall Leonhart Cosplay.

For the ECG Finals, I really wanna do something different from everyone else and really wan't to push myself, so I have decided to cosplay as the main character from one of my All Time Fav Video Games - Raziel from 'Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver'!

I plan getting started with him near the end of January/beginning of February and make it during my spare time at Uni.
I've also made a Facebook Cosplay page… that you can Follow as it'll have more regular updates on Raziel's progress than my dA will have.

Also here is a Link to the ECG Team UK Facebook page, where you can follow Claudia and Lettie's cosplay progress as well as my own :)
