Dan Cattell is a multimedia artist and costume designer best known for inventing 2D pixelated cosplay. He went to Rutgers University to study animation, but always enjoyed testing the waters of other arts, especially by mixing his personal interests together. At Otakon 2010, he debuted his first pixelated cosplay and there was no turning back from the overwhelmingly positive response!

"I love costumes, and I really like making props. A life long hobby has grown into a YouTube channel where I show people how I like to make props."
Odin Abbott has been making costumes and props for over 35 years. Odin started in the pre-internet era, and he learned from books by Tom Savini and Dick Smith, as well as magazines like Cinefex and CineMagic, and honed some skills by building model kits and painting miniatures for tabletop games.
I've been at this a while, not as long as other folks but costuming has been part of me for a good chunk of my life. All I want to do is make others smile using my work, to inspire them to build costumes of their own! Fostering creativity is vital nowadays and that's something I dedicate myself to.
I've been cosplaying for about 8 years and am a PNW native, and creating art since I could walk and and talk. Cosplay is my favorite form of art because it forces me learn new skills and techniques, and bring fantasy to life. The cosplay community is filled with talented creators who love teaching and giving back and I couldn't ask for a better family.
