Hello! I'm Shiva, and I've been cosplaying since 2003.

I've always been interested in costuming, but when I discovered cosplay in college I never would have dreamed I'd still be doing it over ten years later! I certainly never thought that's how I would meet my husband (http://www.acparadise.com/loves/sketch), or some very incredible friends. I love performing and making costumes, and I've met a ton of amazing people through this crazy hobby and learned more than I could have imagined. It's been a blast!

Next Convention Appearance: PortConMaine 2015
