I'm Chantal and from Ontario, Canada. I've been cosplaying since 2008, and to me costuming is the reflection of inner creativity and imagination; the worlds that exist in our minds that manifest what could be possible and express our intrinsic thoughts that make us who we are. It's the embodiment of the love of mediums and the characters and plots that have reached emotions and changed the way we think for the better. Not to mention the awesome people and community that allow this hobby to go beyond just personal expression!
I tend to work very slowly on each cosplay- I'm very picky with my work and strive for my best craftsmanship. Outside of cosplay and every day work, I occupy the rest of my time with friends, admiring others' art, comics/manga, anime, games, reading novels, collecting, occasionally poetry (I like words), and cuddling with my three cats.
