Interests: Sewing, crafting, reading, cosplaying, Harry Potter, Disney.

Tell us about yourself: Besides Harry Potter, my favourite hobby is cosplaying. My first cosplay was Gaz from Invader ZIM in 2007, and since then I haven’t stopped! I make most of my cosplays and I can be proud of everything I’ve done from 2011 up until now. Cosplaying has also led me to pursue a career path as a costumer and I’m currently in a 2-year university program to work as a professional!

Have you always been a geek?: Yes!!! It all began when I was 7 and started reading Harry Potter. My interests tend to be very limited though, because I have a habit of re-visiting old books and movies more often than finding new ones.

Geekiest thing about you: When I’m reading a book or watching a movie, I love nothing more than finding hidden Easter eggs. For example… in “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”, when Crookshanks brought a dead spider into the Gryffindor common-room, the spider was described as being unusually large. This large spider was actually an acromantula – foreshadowing to him being found in the Forbidden Forest, helping Sirius into the castle. And in the movie “Sucker Punch” – the bunny charm on her gun is the same as the bunny her sister had at the beginning of the movie; and all the girls who die in the movie have their nails painted black. And in “The Miserable Mill” (“A Series of Unfortunate Events”), Doctor Georgina Orwell and her eye-shaped building alluded to the book “Nineteen Eighty-Four” by George Orwell, and the terrifying plot of Big Brother watching us. Sorry to ramble – this is why I keep revisiting old books and movies! They have so much return value for me and I love finding extra hidden details.
