I'm a brand-spanking-new cosplayer and con-goer hoping to make my debut at AMKE in February. My sewing machine and I enjoy a mostly cordial relationship, and I'm looking forward to finally putting my theater degree to good use. (Sadly, my husband was an econ major and doesn't share my love of costumes. But my son seems to have inherited my dramatic gene, so I'm holding out hope for him!)
I'm presently at work on a Prince Zuko crossplay (his "Zuko Alone"/early Book 2 outfit) for competition, and I hope to complete a second costume (possibly Fionna the Human or Misty from Pokemon) to wear around the con on Friday and Sunday.
Hope to see some of you around!
