My Favourite anime is Naruto and my favourite manga is Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic.
It means a lot to me! The culture, people (especially artists) and landscapes make it an inspiring and amazing place. Even though I have never visited Japan, it feels like home and a place I belong!
Around 11 or 12, I've gotten rid of a load of old stuff from when I first started and altered clothes to make way for new costumes!
I'm a passionate person who loves to experiment! Cosplay is something which has slowly grown into a passion for me, and I love to learn new techniques and improve on myself. I enjoy illustrating animals and i really admire traditional woodblock prints and ink work. I love cats and chocolate too!
Too many to name! I'm a huge fan of Studio Ghibli and Studio Chizu films, but also like romance or magical anime.
Beauty, colour and a thriving culture with amazing food, traditions and costume. The etiquette and organisation of the Japanese people is also inspiring to my own life choices.
Currently about ten but I have made many more!
