About

13319895_10153559079978038_8926924227485481207_nHi, I’m Kris. I’m a 40-something gal from Minneapolis, MN. I like making costumes and cosplays, and find any opportunity I can to wear them.

I’ve always been artsy and crafty, but I didn’t really get into making my own costumes until my 20s. I learned how to sew as a teenager, but I’m still far from being a professional.

Halloween is my favorite holiday (of course) but I also like going to conventions and trooping at various events with various costuming groups. Basically, anywhere that I have an excuse to make a costume, wear it, and make someone’s day.

I’m a costumer and the website admin for Costumers for a Cause, and one of the co-leaders for the Minnesota Force. I’m also a member of the 501st Legion (ID-40138 – General Hux and DZ-40138 Jawa), member of the Rebel Legion (Exegol Ben Solo, Admiral Ackbar, Jedi, and Rebel Ground Crew), and member of Minnesota Superheroes United.

Awards:

  • Third Place (Gamora) at the 2019 MCBA Spring ComiCon Costume Contest
