“Cosplay was a natural progression for me since there was simply not enough Halloween in my life. I love to learn new skills, trades, make challenges for myself, getting inspiration and ideas from friends (new and old) and making connections through this great community. Known for being a “creature cosplayer” I tend to draw inspiration mainly from film but I’m trying to branch out into other genres.”
