I started cosplay about 2 years ago out of a desire to expand my personal friends and family and also put my crafting knowledge to use. What I discovered was a fun, constructive environment and my passion has become interactions with children and doing their events. One costume has grown to become over 10 in just two years, with even more in the works. My Darth Raiva and Harley Quinn in the gold dress are my two most known costumes. I also have a connective-tissue disease, and have dealt with obstacles from that and helped others as well.
