I've been cosplaying and propmaking since 2003, after falling head over heels in love with anime, manga, western comics, and gaming since high school.
I'm a published cosplayer, having been featured in COSMODE magazine in Japan, and I have worked with many photographers. I've also crafted a good amount of cosplay armor, props, and weapons (mostly swords) for myself and my fiancee, Miyu Miyu-chan.
Honestly, I'm a little surprised that I haven't made myself at home here at deviantART until now.
In addition to cosplay, I am a published author currently working on the second volume of a series of steampunk novels (www.gaslightvolumes.com) and also enjoy J-Rock fashion, karaoke, acting, amateur drawing, creating AMVs, writing fan fiction, and tinkering with small, independently-crafted RPGS.
I'm quite looking forward to geeking out with other cosplayers/otakus/creative-types here. Feel free to drop me a line anytime.
See ya 'round!
