Hi there! I'm akuriko, and I've been into cosplay since 2005, and started going to cons in 2006. I'm currently in college, majoring in Music and minoring in Japanese language. I hope to become a video game music composer. I have about a million and a half hobbies, which mostly consist of playing music, video games, sewing and designing clothing, cosplay (of course), watching anime, knitting, crocheting, drawing and painting, and studying Japanese language and culture. As far as creating costumes, I pretty much do everything myself, from pattern drafting and sewing to wig styling to making all the jewelery and accessories. Other things I like to do are jogging, and aerobics. ^ ^ It's nice to meet all of you! ^ ^/"
