I must say I was extremely thrilled to find a cosplaying group here that wasn't filled with teens! Not that I mind and I totally encourage craftyness to all no matter what age, it's just nice to be able to find people more around my own age. ;0)
Ok so ummm intro. My name is Amy. *waves* I'm 33 and I'm an artist here in the Boston, MA area. I love to dress up at the conventions I attend and LOVE cosplayers! The talent in creating all those costumes amazes me! When I first started to attend conventions, seeing all the great costumes made me miss sewing and creating so I recently started creating costumes, which you can see some being worked on over in my livejournal. Feel free to add me! I love meeting new people and would totally love any advice as well. I'm not all that great at sewing but I try. I did sew a bit when I was younger but artwork took over mostly. ;0)
Let's see what else, asides from doing my own artwork, I also model for other artists. And as for costuming, I don't really do costuming for other people (other than my hubby) as I'm rather rusty at my sewing since it has been quite some years since I did any sewing, EEP! but I am working on several right now and trying to get back into the swing of things. I'm slowly remembering it.
Also, I'm totally LOVING the Jem cosplay that I'm seeing on here! I'M A HUGE JEM FAN! ;0) I did create a Jem costume back in, I think it was, 2006. I made the Halloween Jem costume from the episode Trick or Techrat (is that sad that I know that?! LOL) and all by hand too, cause I didn't have a sewing machine at the time. I do hope to make more Jem ones in the future but juggling artwork and sewing is a bit tough. Right now I only do sewing on weekends, which I totally look forward to!
Ok so yeah now I'm rambling, lol sorry about that. But yeah HI!!!
