On Saturday, I just done an interview with Laura and James. Laura is doing her Master thesis on Anime and Cosplaying and was looking for relevant people to interview.
They came to my house and interviewed me in my room. I really enjoyed the interview and taking part! The documentary should be up on youtube in August and I will be sure to share it! I done the interview in my Rei Miyamoto cosplay. After the interview Laura and James took photos of my fingurines and cosplays. Then when they left I took photos of my otaku or just room to share in my blog, to expres that these all mean alot to me. :)
My room and cosplays
My cosplays feauring in papers over the years. That is me in my Ero-Lolita Rei cosplay with my old dark Rei wig. I was in my first magazine "Totally Dublin" the article titled "Costumes and Exercise" That was back in 2007.
In the Sunday Times.
You will also see some of the Anime academic books I read such as "The Beautiful Fighting Girl" and "Fandom Unbound: Otaku Culture in a Connected World"
I deeply feel if you are passionate about something you should express it and share it as you don't know where it will lead you. Not only that, there is nothing better in this world to be your true self and express it. I really have come along way since staffing at Eirtakon in 2006, working for a large cultural festival Experience Japan, being on television, setting up Cosplay Ireland recieving media exposure and completed my Events Internship. Anime and cosplay has really changed my life and made into the woman I am today.
