I am a sucker for badges... and i never pass up an opportunity to talk about my favorite subject of ME!!!
I started my dA account at first when I heard another cosplayer have someone impersonate them on it. So I figured to be safe, sign up and snag my user name before someone else does. Eventually, when another costume site just started FAILING (cosplay.com) I began to give this site a try.
I really wish I did it sooner. Its a well designed and cared for site. There many talented people on here that go well beyond costuming, and well Its a very social medium that entirely unique from Facebook.
Outside of that, I have been costuming for 8 years now. I have moved more towards making things for others the past 2 years to help support my family, but I still love it. I have some bigger projects I just finished, and one I am just beginning... Hope to have pics up of them soon.
See everyone at AWA!!!
