I have been around in the cosplay scene for a long time. My first year cosplaying at an anime convention was 2001 Otakon. Before this I cosplayed at characters I liked but I didn’t know it was an actual thing. I was that kid who liked being video games characters or cartoon characters I watched on the television.
I have traveled to a bunch of cons on the east coast. Otakon, Katsucon, AUSA, Setsucon, Tekko, Dragoncon, Nekocon, Colossalcon, Wizard World and a few comic conventions in Baltimore and Pennsylvania. I have been a costume judge for AUSA and Tekko as well as the Pittsburgh Retro Gaming con and 3 Rivers Comic Con.
I have a variety of awards under my belt and I compete in the Master Category.
My dream cosplay is Wing Zero from Gundam Wing and I REEEEAAALY want to do it this year. The funds for it is my only limiter right now.
Cosplay Kitchen has been a dream of mine for a long time. I started it back in 2010 with the idea of just being a group of cosplayers who attend conventions together. This idea grew into a company to make costumes and props. We added photography shortly after and now the dream is to expand into a studio space to teach people how to costume. To help build a community and give people a place to go.
