I got started cosplaying 2 days before my first London MCM expo back in 2006. Crazedteensie called me asking if i wanted to go. Of course i had no time to make anything so FreyaCresent and Luminescence made me a pair of Chobits ears (thanks!) and I wore a black dress to be Freya from Chobits. Blame them for everything.
Since then I've strived to improve in all areas of cosplay, and I'll keep doing so until my hands fall off (an actual possibility)
And yes, generally speaking I do indeed handsew everything. Yes, I'm crazy. Yes, I do so out of choice and enjoy it.
