Hi, my name is Nicole Oyama and I’m a Web Designer from San Diego, CA. I sometimes cosplay on the side too, and only have been to San Diego Comic Con since 2009. I didn’t technically start to cosplay until 2011, when plans were changed and I went with Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop. Needless to say, the rest was history.

I also enjoy crocheting things, making things, putting things in Shiro’s Crochet etsy shop. I have always been interested in painting and drawing, and it definitely has been a huge help in all of the venues I’m pursuing.
