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!
Cosplayer in Southern California and a full-time engineering student. Likes cosplaying characters from mobile RPG games and Japanese idols. Loves using hot glue gun and collaborating with different people.
I started officially cosplaying in 2015. I created a youtube channel (Cosplay Life) a few years later. I figured if I was looking up how to do something and couldn't find a video showing me how to do it, I should probably make the video.
I love weathering props—using a brush, I add black or brown paint to creases and edges and smudge it with a paper towel. It adds so much depth and shading to really make props pop. I use this technique on everything from weapons to princess crowns!
A wigmaker, costume artist, and bourbon lover from Louisville Ky! Jedimanda creates costumes from scratch and often designed by her as well. She has a large love for many fandoms, include Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Marvel and many more.
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.
Cosplayer, Explorer & Nordic Mystic. Vlogger and designer. "Taking my love of fantasy and creating it in real life while empowering others to do the same."
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.
Long Island native. Spent 25 years in the United States Army. Medically retired after 3 years of hospitalizations. Turned to music and other forms of art as a form of physical therapy.
After being introduced to Cosplay became thrilled at the thought of creating things from favorite movies, tv shows and video games. Now attends con all over the U.S. as an invited guest.
