Birthdate:Jun 9

I'm an Anime fan who enjoys Cosplaying, attending Anime Conventions and hanging out with my friends. My current favourite Anime series are Naruto, Hellsing, Heat Guy J, Gakuen Alice, Ouran High School Host Club, After War Gundam X, Black Cat & Last Exile. I'm also a big fan of the wonderful Manga series by Mukai Natsumi, +Anima.

Cosplay has been a big part of my life since I worked on my first costume in late 2001. I enjoy the challenges, fellowship and creativity involved in making costumes. I started off mostly Cosplaying from more obscure Anime/Manga or as lesser known characters and I've been leaning towards Cosplaying characters from horror video games since 2007. I also enjoy Cosplaying the odd popular character (like Sasuke from Naruto or Orihime from Bleach) from time to time. :3 I especially love Cosplaying with my friends. Together with [info]sakurak and [info]lelola I'm part of a informal Cosplay group called Hurricane PBS. We sometimes do group costumes together like Team 7 from Naruto and Sora, Tai and Matt from Digimon.

Beyond Anime and Cosplay, I completed an honours undergraduate degree of bachelor of the arts from the University of Toronto in June 2008. I majored in Anthropology and had minors in Sociology and East Asian Studies. When I was in university I enjoyed studying social trends and deconstructing the assumptions we all have about the world around us. I also loved studying the Japanese language and culture. <3 After graduation I stumbled upon an awesome job working full-time as an administrative assistant and writer for a small PC game company. It's sort of a dream job that I never expected to get with my university degree. XD I also work as a part-time web assistant for a major charity.

I'm also a fan of Tim Burton, Johnny Depp and Danny Elfman. I adore Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Corpse Bride, The Nightmare Before Christmas and other movies two of (or all of them) have worked on together. Tim Burton has such an original and creative outlook, Danny Elfman is a wonderful composer and singer and Johnny Depp is one expressive and amazing actor.

For my birthday in 2006 I finally got my own video game system (a Playstation 2) which I love to pieces. In early 2009 I added a PS3 to my collection. :3 I'm a pretty big video game fan and I love playing such games as Resident Evil 4 & 5, Rule of Rose, Kingdom Hearts, the Nightmare Before Christmas Oogie's Revenge, and any Silent Hill game (I own Origins, Homecoming and 2 - 4). Playing video games is such a blast especially when I can play games with my friends. <3 My family has been a Nintendo family (starting with the original system) so I also love all the Mario and the Legend of Zelda games. (^^)

Finally, I'm not sure what I'll be doing and what I'm striving for in the future, but I'll make the most of today in the hopes of creating a bright tomorrow.
