I am a seamstress and cosplayer who enjoys creating costumes of my favorite characters from video games, comics, TV shows, and anime. I enjoy sharing my creative process on social media as well and broadcasting it on Twitch to entertain, teach, and chat with my audience. I focus on building a positive, inclusive community for fellow cosplayers and crafters of all skill levels and backgrounds. I sometimes participate in highly competitive costume contests and also vlog my travel to various conventions to cosplay with friends.

Cosplay History: I have been cosplaying since 2010 and have created 50+ costumes since I began. I enjoy learning and developing skills related to all aspects of the costuming process; whether it’s sewing, prop/armor-making, wig-styling, make-up techniques, or modeling. I have judged costume contests and hosted panels relating to cosplay. I pride myself as a chameleon of cosplay and being able to tackle a variety of character types and appearances. Cosplay is a huge creative and social outlet for me and I plan to cosplay for many years to come!

Gaming History: As a young child, I remember my dad getting me hooked on NES games and arcade simulators. I was addicted to Pokemon Red on my Gameboy Color and loved N64 games like Super Smash Bros. and Ocarina of Time. In high school, I spent a lot of time on my Xbox with friends. I’ve played World of Warcraft since Classic and spent most of my free time in college and grad school raiding as a healer (paladin/druid, for the Horde!). After I graduated college, my gaming was reduced considerably and I spent most of my free time cosplaying. However, I am once again spending more time on this hobby and may sometimes stream games on Twitch!
