Vraskaa Cosplay

About Vraskaa…

Vraskaa Cosplay is the alias of the costumer Hunter Rich-Smith from Austin, TX. She began building her repertoire of cosplay in 2015 with her first cosplay being A.B.A. from Guilty Gear. Ever since she has grown attached to the creation of her costumes, learning new techniques and skills to keep improving, the feeling of being in character, and the positive effect her work has on others. She focuses mostly on large armor builds from video games that are accompanied by big props to match. While she is self taught in the ways of working with foams, silicones, and thermoplastics it hasn’t held her back from bringing projects into reality that many other crafters shy away from. She has been featured in Cosplayzine on multiple occasions, been featured on a Kotaku article, had her Bioshock cosplay shared by the makers of the game, and has hosted panels over building cosplay armor in the past to help others create. Stop by her booth to see some of her past work and the new creations she will be debuting at this event!

About AshesNewMoon …

AshesNewMoon is a cosplayer, artist, dancer, and prop maker based out of Joplin, Missouri. She discovered her love for conventions and the wonderful hobby of cosplay after attending her first con when she was fifteen years old.

Ashe has appeared as a guest judge, an artist, a panelist, and a performer.

She was featured alongside her performance crew Kikadansu in Cosplay Realm Magazine.
