Greetings from the Mitten!
Hello~ I've been lurking around this site for a month or so, and thought I'd finally post an introduction, haha.
Location: Michigan, about 2 hours north of Detroit
I've been making costumes for a few years, because I gave up on finding store-bought women's Halloween costumes. But technically, have only been cosplaying for about a year. I'm still learning to sew, so it's been a challenge for me!
I've been to Youmacon the last two years, and I'll be attending Ohayocon next month.
I just recently started watching anime again after a loooong hiatus, so I haven't seen a lot of the more popular and classic series. Anyway, my favorites are Outlaw Star, Uta no Prince-Sama, Ouran High School Host Club, Free! Iwatobi Swim Club, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Black Butler.
I also play video games. Always have, always will probably. My favorites are The Legend of Zelda series, Portal series, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem, Super Smash Brothers Melee/Brawl, .hack series, and Just Dance.
Outside of cosplay and cons, my hobbies include reading, musical theater, my pets (I'm a licensed veterinary technician, so animals are important to me), camping, Tumblr, and I'm trying to get back into swimming.
So yeah, that was long. Anyway, I'm looking for friends that maybe eventually could cosplay with me. I've been lurking the forum, and everyone here seems really nice and helpful.
