I have been cosplaying since 2018 and I have gone to various conventions in Virginia as well as North Carolina. Along with being a cosplayer, I have also been a cast member of two different Rocky Horror Picture Show shadow casts. I have cosplayed various characters including Emma Frost from the X-Men, Mavis from Hotel Transylvania, and many others.
