Featured Cosplayer and Cosplay Judge

Strangelittlecat is a cosplayer from Germany who relocated to Texas in 2017. She started cosplaying in 2012 after attending gaming conventions year after year and finally just diving in with what little sewing knowledge she had. Growing up with a passion for video games, comics, anime, movies, cartoons and theater it only felt natural to express her love for her favorite characters by bringing them to life through costumes and performances. Being a crafty person since childhood the creation of costumes and props from scratch soon became an everyday journey of finding and trying new materials and techniques. She was a cosplay finalist at TwitchCon in 2018 where she competed as Nightmare Cenarius, a centaur demigod from the Warcraft franchise. When she is not cosplaying you'll most likely find her with a controller in her hands, reading a book or playing piano or ocarina.
