Yo! I'm KawaiixFukuro otherwise known as Leash, I'm an 21 year-old female currently residing in the wet and miserable realm we call the 'United Kingdom'
Oh yes tally ho' I'm sadly British, with some Irish and Italian mixed in there somewhere and no I don't go around in a top hat and monocle drinking tea and eating creamed scones; coffee's way better!
I started drawing around the age of 10 just picking random things to sketch until I started secondary school where I got bit by the anime/manga bug and since then my 'art-world' opened up before me. With my art I've been invited to 'Gifted and Talented' sessions at school having my work shown for induction days and apparently more. At the age of fourteen I had my first art exhibition at Yo! Sushi's restaurant whilst managing to win the 'Art' award at my secondary school.
In 2012 I passed my GCSEs and started a new chapter in my life by attending Confetti college, studying a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Games Development and Interactive Media for two years. On the course I learnt the fundamentals and core basics of making a game using some of the Autodesk collection, Ren'Py and UDK which also allowed me to begin creating 3D animations using my own models or bipip models. During my time there I was also selected to meet and present Prince Harry with a game when he visited back in 2013, plus meeting some amazing people from both the game and animation industry.
Back in 2008 I found out what cosplay was and bought my first which was Itachi Uchiha from Naruto but didn't actually start attending conventions till 2012 when I visited London October's MCM as Amaterasu from Okami which was my first handmade costume.
Since then my cosplay world opened up for me as it became such a change from hardly knowing anyone who enjoyed or shared similar interests to anime and cosplay, to suddenly having met and befriending people who pretty much like what you do and attend cosplay/gaming conventions regularly. So far most of my completed hand made cosplays have been based on game characters like Link from Legend of Zelda, Reno from Final Fantasy and Riku from Kingdom Hearts which I believe has been influenced by college where I studied a gaming course.
Even though I haven't attended a lot of conventions as yet, I participate in joining group meetings based around where I live, sometimes organising meetings myself and attending Manga Nights put on by Forbidden Planet stores. In future I plan to continue attending as many conventions as possible whilst still making my own costumes in order to go up in the masquerade.
