I'm a married woman in my early thirties. I live in Northeastern Ohio.
I cosplay, often competitively, and have been doing so for fourteen years now. I also write fanfiction (mostly about Fullmetal Alchemist) and have been doing that for sixteen years. I attend several conventions a year, and work as cosplay or general staff at Youmacon and Colossalcon. I also play lots of video games, and collect toys. I love yokai and reading myths and folklore from around the world.
I love animals and visit the zoo and a local wildlife sanctuary several times a year. A year ago I also became a volunteer for a local zoo and I help make costumes for their Boo at the Zoo celebration.
My favorite anime is Fullmetal Alchemist and I know lots of useless little details about it. My favorite character from there is Riza Hawkeye and I love pairing her up with Roy Mustang, or occasionally Havoc or Ed. I also love Soul Eater, particularly the titular character, and I love reading good Soul / Maka fanfiction.
