Kat Milby is the soft materials side of the casual cosplay duo, Side Quest Cosplay. As a geek, pop culture addict, and fiber artist, mixing historical fashion with cosplay is her favorite cosplay trend. With over 25 years of experience in sewing costumes, pattern hacking and general making-do in costumery, Kat would love to geek out with you over historical silhouettes, the issues you encountered while crafting your perfect character vision, and your plans for your next cosplay.

She lives in Durham, NC with her husband, her corgi, and her beloved fabric stash. When not working the day job or stress-sewing, Kat can be found playing video games, knitting, cross-stitching, or planning her next great road trip.
