Kitteninstrings Cosplay

screen-shot-2017-08-05-at-10-22-34-pm-copy

Kitteninstrings Cosplay has been costuming for 10+ years. She went to school for Opera and Vocal performance and fell in love with and refused to leave the costume department. A resident of Northern New England, she travels a lot and does many classes, workshops and lessons at conventions and her local workshop in Saco, Maine. Her biggest lament is that she takes on so many commissions that she hasn’t had time to make a new costume for herself in ages! Sewing, Beading, Embroidery, Armor, Props, lights, and all points in between… she’s done it all!
When she’s not crafting or at a con she can generally be found at home with her nose in a book or getting into trouble with her 9 y/o.

Not registered yet? New payment option!

PopCult has just added a second way to buy your badge.

We have been experimenting with using TicketSpice for our sales this year, but we realize that it may not be the best payment option for attendees that rely on PayPal.

We’ve added the option to buy your badge via EventBrite, which accepts PayPal.

We hope this makes things easier for all our attendees, and can’t wait to see you all at PopCult Anime Con!
