I'm Katie. By day I'm a mild mannered software engineer. By night I'm.....well, I'm mostly hanging out with my dog, Ichi. Clearly, in my spare time I like to sew. I see characters I love and I set out to make their attire. Sometimes it can be stressful, but it's all fun and games until someone gets stabbed in the eye.

 

Actually because of the whole engineer thing, I tend to look at it as more of an engineering task. Since they don't exist in real life a lot of the process involves figuring out the best approach to make it. That's the part I love. I try to do my best at making them comfy, but sometimes there is just nothing you can do. If you are trying not to spend a lot of money because you expect to not get a ton of wear out of it, it's often not going to feel like a tshirt and jeans (unless it is a tshirt and jeans).

 

 

Because of that, you won't see me wear a costume all day ever. About 3 hours in costume and I will change clothes, go eat, and then maybe toss on a new one. I try to make at least one new costume per convention while I also try to make sure that every costume gets worn to everything it can at least once. I do want to get all the wear I can.

 

 

Beyond cosplay, my favorite color is lime green. I like French motifs such as fleur de lis's and crowns.  My house is aspiring to be an Anthropologie store stemming from my closet. And I like going to the movies (popcorn is yummy).
