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 am a junior high teacher by day, prop maker/YouTuber by night. I make a wide range of things using a wide range of products and techniques. I love being creative and sharing my process with others to get them interested in making.
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.
Whiskey Weasel Cosplay is a foam-smithing and sewing husband and wife team who have accumulated over 24 years of costuming experience both on and off the stage. They have worked on several film/tv projects as well as over a dozen stage productions.
"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.
Cosplayer. SFX Artist. Streamer. Magic Maker! AmberSkies is no stranger to the world of creation and nerd-dom! In the last 7 years Amber has transcended to the professional cosplay stage and taken on elaborate and complex costuming builds, working hand in hand with amazing companies such as Marvel Studios, Fox Entertainment, and the Walt Disney Company. Using her art and teaching background, she aspires to teach and inspire others to get out and create, and to fall in love with the world cosplay community as much as she has.
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.
