About

bioheadshot

Hello there! I am an award winning professional costume maker and cosplayer based in the Southeastern US. With over 15 years of sewing experience, I have built a career creating high-end commissioned pieces full time.

Specializing in detailed, craftsmanship heavy costumes, I have a versatile portfolio of work, from meticulously hand sewn historically-inspired costumes to sleek and finely detailed armor builds. My costumes have won several major awards, including placing in the central region two years running at the Crown Championships of Cosplay, one of the most prestigious international cosplay championships in the world. My work has also been featured in print and online publications, including Bernina’s We All Sew blog as well as Cosplay Culture magazine.

I present in-depth and informative sewing and costuming panels at conventions around the southeast, with a mission to share knowledge and inspire new cosplayers in their journey.

Please contact me directly for convention bookings. I am a craftsmanship oriented maker with background in sewing, armor making, and costume wig styling. I offer several costume, sewing, and craftsmanship related panels. If you would like to see me at your local convention, please suggest me as a guest!

*Please note that at this time I am unfortunately not accepting commissions from new clients outside of my local network.
