Chiki Cosplay developed her sewing expertise under the tutelage of head costume designers for operas and professional theatres. Chiki Cosplay excels in craftsmanship, never shying away from any costume which requires minute detailing or difficult techniques. She has won a multitude of awards, including several Best in Show for construction and masquerade skits.

Chiki Cosplay has now found a calling as a judge and contest coordinator, judging craftsmanship at conventions all over the east coast. She has been a featured judge at Animazement, Katsucon, Otakon, TsubasaCon, and Nashicon and is the current cosplay director for NekoCon and contest coordinator for Queen City Anime Con. In addition to judging and contest coordinating, she makes appearances as a cosplay guest and panelist, sharing her wealth of costuming knowledge and her other passions like Disney and Fallout. When not working at conventions, she focuses on her photography career and is a member of the board for the community service organization: CausePlay Carolinas. In 2023 Chiki is looking forward to guesting at her first RavenCon and the Taylor Swift Eras tour. She’d like you to know those tickets were very hard to get and it is worthy of bragging about.
