My name is Sachi, my online handle is Chibith0t and I’ve been cosplaying since 2015. I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology with a background in Fashion merchandising and business and have been freelance fashion styling since 2011. Mixing my background in fashion and styling with my love for character design especially within the anime and video game genres, I started cosplaying. Cosplay is a way to celebrate your favorite fandoms through expressing yourself through your clothing. I found a passion for it and here I am now.
