I've been cosplaying since early 2009, and started making my own costumes in 2012. The more involved I get in this hobby, the more I love it. I can't imagine where I'd be if this wasn't a part of my life.
I love the creative process of turning a 2D idea into a reality. It's the challenge of getting all the little pieces together that keeps me here. I've recently gotten involved in hosting panels at conventions and will be spending some time in 2014 working on coming up with new ideas for them.
In early 2013, I got back into photography, a hobby that started back in high school. I often take cosplay photos at conventions, but prefer being on location. Convention spaces are just so limiting sometimes! My Facebook page for my photography work can be found here: http://facebook.com/alchemist.fotos
