Welcome to my Atelier!
Focused on all things anime!
It has been a while since I have made contact with the internet world and all of my followers. I have decided to create my own website dedicated to my love for anime and cosplaying. Up until this point I have been sharing my stuff with the world via Deviantart, Cosplay.com, and Facebook. However, my interests have become so widespread that keeping up with various different websites became a hassle therefore I have smashed all of my interests into one website. I will continue to upload my other pages when I have time (which really doesn’t exist for me).
Thanks for stopping by and checking out all of my latest works focused around anime, cosplay and video games. I became hooked on Anime when I was about eight year old. My first Anime was Hayao Miyazaki’s “Kiki’s Delivery Service” followed very closely by Sailor Moon.
I started drawing Anime characters at a young age (although I was not very good at it personally). It wasn’t until I entered college that I started to improve upon my art skills. Unlike most artists that you see at conventions, I did not major or take any classes in art or digital media. I had to learn on my own through online tutorials, friends, and countless art books. Anime and manga are considered to be my number one hobby in life. I believe that if I were born in Japan I probably would have taken my love for Anime to the next level and became a manga artist. I may not have the art design or fashion design background that many other artists have but I am a firm believer in teaching yourself.
I began cosplaying in 2007 and have traveled all over North America to show my costume designs. The majority of the conventions that I attend are in Florida and Ontario. I will be posting my cosplay creations and even post some tutorials that can possibly be helpful to other cosplayers. I am a huge fan at making weapons and work with all types of materials from foam to wood to WonderFlex (amazing invention fyi).
A new hobby I have taken up lately are resin garage kit models. I am just starting to get a grasp on this hobby so I will be posting pictures of my progress over the next few months. I am crossing my fingers that my figures will turn out well.
On occasion I will post under the “Blog” section any updates in my anime life. Anything from my next cosplay ideas to what anime/manga I am watching/reading. Feel free to comment on any blog topics if you feel like it If you have any questions you would like to ask please email me and I will try my best to get back to you in a reasonable time. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the Atelier!
