You may have seen me at Otakon 2013 or Zenkaikon 2014, where I presented the panel "Nyan! Cats in Japanese Culture and Animation," which proved my B.A. degrees in Religion and Anthropology were useful for something! I have also helped with the workshops "Introduction to Magic: the Gathering," "Introduction to Pokemon: Trading Card Game," and last year's "Dice Masters Demo". I am a self-taught costume creator and cosplayer, having been Lust from Fullmetal Alchemist, Neko Maid Mayuri from Steins: Gate, Lady Steampunk Raichu from Pokemon, Sona: Maiven of the Strings from League of Legends, or Cersei from the Song of Fire and Ice/Game of Thrones series. Ask me about cosplay, costume design and styling, TCG's, Pokemon, Dice Master's, Japanese culture, film, theater, and of course CATS!

Zenkaikon 2016, I am presenting the 18+ panel, "Badass Anime Weapons" and assisting "Overpowered Anime Character" and "The idea of a Hero: East vs. West." See you there!
