Special Cosplay Guest: Jerikandra

Appearing Saturday & Sunday
Table E6

Jerikandra started out cosplaying when she met Abi Sue and has only been doing so for about 3 years now. She began by buying and commissioning costumes (or parts of costumes) she cosplayed in. This included sewed as well as latex costumes. Soon though, Abi Sue taught her to sew and because she started with learning how to sew spandex, she prefers it over non-stretchy fabrics.


In an effort to learn more, she taught herself the basics of Latex garment creation (which is actually glued instead of sewn). Among some of her other experiences, she learned how to cast both polyester and polyurethane resin and has also begun learning the basics of mold-making as well. She posts ‘work in progress’ pictures often and keeps track of several tutorial links for future use as well.


When it comes to cosplaying characters, she finds herself picking them based on either their empowering abilities or simply ones with shiny and bright colored costumes. She loves superheroes, Disney princesses, Science fiction, Fantasy, and comics as well. Running out of characters to cosplay will never be a problem for her. Cosplaying has been an incredible experience for her and she believes strongly in being openly supportive to anyone who is interested in cosplaying, no matter their race, gender, or body type.


Special Cosplay Guest: Abi Sue

Appearing Saturday & Sunday
Table E6

Abi Sue got into cosplay about 7 years ago when her brothers invited her to an anime convention. The experience was so enjoyable that she continued making upwards of 30+ costumes for herself and more for friends and family over the years. She enjoys posting ‘work in progress’ photos often and loves to help people find solutions to costume problems.


Materials that she has worked with range from worbla or craft foam armor, jewelry, wig styling and wefting, sewing a variety of fabrics, specializing in bodysuit creation with spandex, creating patterns from scratch or editing existing patterns, learned the basics of casting resin from Jerikandra, leatherwork, hand embroidery, and even learned how to make chainmail.


Having won first place in the Rose City Comic Con costume contest in the comics category a few years ago, as well as placing in a few other contests, she now enjoys judging costume contests more. She has a love for a variety of characters and has a huge list that she keeps adding to. She cosplays from comics, Disney movies, Sci Fi, games, anime, movies, tv shows, the list goes on! She loves choosing characters that she can relate to, or that have really challenging or beautiful costumes to create. She feels cosplay has such a positive influence in her life, everyone who is interested, should give it a try!
