Hello, my name is Ashley O’Neill and I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Art has always been an important part of my life, and one of my most popular pastimes. Over the years, I’ve honed my skills from drawing dinosaur princesses with jewelry and capes in Kindergarten, to anime to detailed portraiture and my favourite World of Warcraft characters in high school and university.
In July 2013, cosplay took hold of my creativity when my friend and I were gushing about the prettiness we loved in WoW and the beauty of armour and character designs. This conversation jump-started my new-found passion and led me into a roller coaster of excitement, frustration, thoughtfulness and late-night Oshley crafting time to perfect my costumes.
