Minzii

Minzii is an Atlanta-based cosplayer who has been in the cosplay community for almost a decade, and sewing since 2012. She first cosplayed in 2009, and decided to start making her own costumes 3 years later. She is almost entirely self-taught with multiple awards under her belt, loves challenges, and is constantly learning new techniques. She enjoys anything with rhinestones and ruffles, and is always up for conversation about all things nerdy and sewing!

ADOS Cosplay

Abby ADOS Cosplay is an award winning veteran Atlanta-area cosplayer who has been cosplaying and attending conventions since 2006. She draws most of her costuming inspiration from Video Games, and Anime, and has a passion for props and armor (but she’s not afraid of a good sewing challenge). She loves hosting panels and helping people in the community get started, and she’s always open for questions. (Photo by Patrick Sun)

Pinky Shear

Pinky Shear is the costumer’s costumer. With 30+ years of experience, her attention to detail elevates any project to a work of art. Her portfolio spans from historical to fantasy to rockstar to con-goer, and her body of work can be found in film, television, burlesque, and theater. Over the last 10 years, Pinky has shared her tips, tricks, and expertise in panels for Dragon Con, OutlantaCon, Jordan Con, Anime Weekend Atlanta, AnachroCon, FroliCon and more.
