Cosplay can encompass so many techniques. I personally have interest in many, but some of my favorites include embroidery, leather working, electronics, sewing and larger than life projects!
Clara Cow Cosplay Cup was my International debut. Competing locally, nationally and now internationally gives me a unique cosplay experience. I have now represented Canada 3 times since 2021.
One of my passions is helping cosplayers learn new things! Teaching cosplayers through panels, workshops and events is one of my favorite parts about cosplay.
I have judged many cosplay competitions, from small town conventions to international qualifying events.
I have chosen a pathway through cosplay that can be described a Jack of all Trades. I strive to have skills in many different techniques involving cosplay.
This panel focuses how to compete in cosplay contests from registering to awarding. I answer questions about every step of the way to help and inspire cosplayers to enter competitions in the future.
Leather working can be tough to learn as it can be super intimidating! In this panel we break down leather working fundamentals through popular costumes.
Many cosplayers get nervous in cosplay pre-judging. Here we talk about tips and tricks on how to survive and make the most of the event in competitions! I typically host this panel the day of or the day before a cosplay contest to help relieve the stress of that events competitors
In all my time judging, my main goal is to keep it positive. When I have cosplayers come into prejudging it should be a safe space for them to show off their amazing skills. Their stage time is for them to shine and show how proud they are!
I have had the opportunity to judge the Masters of Cosplay - Calgary Expo Qualifier. This was an incredibly difficult competition to judge, but was such an amazing opportunity. I look forward to more in the future.
It is so important to remember that everyone starts somewhere. Along with this I try to make everyone's first judging experience an amazing one by remembering what it was like at my first competition.
