I joined Live Journal because there is a wealth of knowledge from fellow Costumers. From, how to, dress diaries, to pictures and the trials and tribulations that others went through. I get my costuming fix and TONS of inspiration just from reading my friends page. I live in sunny southern California and even with the travel I have done, I must say I find it one of the best places to live. I am happily married with two furry children. My baby is the purring one, and I also have a dog... I'm not a dog person so I have a love-hate relationship with him. I love him because he is MY dog, but hate him cause he's A dog. I work in a correctional facility with dreams of still going to medical school. One class at a time sort of thing.
