Hi! I'm Sailor Gaia and I live and work in Central Illinois with my husband & dog. I consider myself a grounded, fun person who has a high regard for laughter. I enjoy discussions about deep topics as well as the light-hearted matters, but prefer the latter.

A minority among fellow geeks, I am proud to call myself Christian and a conservative. I don't like to talk about politics but I am always willing to chat about my faith. I would describe myself as the American definition of an "otaku" (i.e. a fan of Japanese animation) and have been into anime and anime-fandom for well over a decade now. As I have always enjoyed the art of costuming and fashion history, cosplay has become one of my biggest passions. It has allowed me to explore the world of crafting and design but also has given me an outlet to connect with a variety of different people across the United States and beyond through a shared fandom. Outside of cosplay I hike, camp, read a ton of classic novels, and am a huge movie-nut.

I've maintained this journal for over a decade now and sometimes review its oldest contents for a laugh. I find it somewhat cathartic as I some proof that I've been able to change over time. While I don't update very often, I still encourage you to drop me a line sometime. I love making new friends!
