About the speaker
I'm a space journalist by trade (though that sounds far more exciting than it is), working for BBC Sky at Night Magazine. A confirmed geek I enjoy getting passionate about things, sometimes to the point of obsession. I don't just like a book or a film. I LOVE IT! And one of the ways I express this love is through creation, specifically cosplaying (short for costume play). I want to talk about this passion of mine, which is becoming an increasingly popular hobby, where we don't just wear our passion on our sleeves but over our entire body.
