Sew In Love submitted by DesignNeige
DesignNeige shared her beautiful love story with us:
"My, now fiancé, and I met 5 years ago at a small Chicago anime convention. It was really rather awkward and we never even spoke. But I remember seeing him across the room and thinking that he was the most incredible guy I've seen in my life. I figured there's no way he was single and we went our separate ways. One year later, my cousin was finally going off to college, and sitting at a fire we were all talking and laughing about hobbies and memories; things you usually talk about with extended family. And one of my cousins friend came up to me and said, "you remind me of this guy I know. Let me give you his info!" He pulled up his friends Facebook on his phone and my jaw dropped. It was him! The guy from he convention!!! I couldn't believe it, and taking this rare second chance, I jumped immediately. After days straight of talking we finally met in person and we have been together ever since. 4 years later we are engaged and have moved into our first apartment together! Our mutual love of costuming and crafts has only grown stronger since then, and we have sewn many outfits since then. Now we are looking forward to making our own wedding attire!"
