I picked up my grandpa's NES controller at age 4 and instantly fell in love with it. LifeForce was my first love, followed by Super Mario Bros 3. I moved to playstation after that, then PC and now xbox. PC gaming is kind of my thing. I was pretty into World of Warcraft (Vanilla - Cataclysm) and was one of those people who would call out of work to raid.
I really hate when people ask me what my favorite game is. Do you have any idea how many video games there are? I can't choose one. Impossible. I play everything - but sports games. I don't get it. If you want to play football, go outside.
I went to my first convention in 2005. My mum saw an ad for AniZona at a comicbook store and thought I'd be interested. She ended up going with me to my first 3 conventions. My first cosplay ever was Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist. Laugh if you want. I still have it. Haha I remember getting out of the car on the first day of the convention complaining to my mum, "What if no one else is dressed up!? I'm going to look ridiculous."
I am involved with all sorts of things. I'm a member of the FANTASTIC media group The XX Girls (www.facebook.com/officialxxgirls), write game reviews for a magazine called Cosplay Shinkou (www.cosplayshinkou.com/), and model for some insane local clothing companies like Aqua Red (ari.storenvy.com). I absolutely love what I do
