I'm a 2010 graduate of Penn State Mont Alto with a B.A. in English. Anime, manga, and cosplay didn't come into my life until my freshman year of college when I picked up Last Exile
, but as soon as it did, I was hooked. As a "scavenger" cosplayer, I tend to buy the parts for my costumes and piece them together from items on hand, but I do plan on learning how to construct my own costumes from scratch.
In my free time (hah, what free time?) I like to read fantasy novels and manga, draw using traditional media, take walks, spar, sing, and swim. I also write poems, fanfiction, and novels. My dream is to become a fantasy novelist, book editor, and possibly a manga-ka.Poetry/Writing/OC dA - Starsister12
