I've always loved dressing up and recently a good friend of mine informed me of the WONDERS of cosplay (which SOMEHOW I had never heard of?!) and I believe I'm a little bit in love <3
My Grandma taught me to how make a cushion when I was 7 and since then I've developed my sewing skills myself through guesswork and trial and error. I make up my own patterns because I can never find the patterns I need and I just find it easier :)
When I was a kid I used to make props and miniature sets for my Barbies and Beanie Babies (hehehe!) and when I was 10 my mum's friend saw my creations and told me about her niece who was a prop maker for the Harry Potter series and since then I've always wanted to be a prop maker :)
Now I'm studying on a prop making degree course to develop my skills further and BOY- it's swell. I love it.
