She has always loved gaming, comics and anime. It was this love that lead her to discovering cosplay at her first con. Right there and then that she fell in love with cosplaying and the cosplay community. After a few years of closet cosplays, she started plucking up the courage to begin making her own costumes. She discovered that it was an incredible creative outlet. Ashley has since been pushing the boundaries to what she can make. She loves to sew, build armour with craft foam or Worbla, make silicone suits or prosthetics, learn make up techniques and play with body paints.
