PopCult Anime Con is pleased to welcome two new Cosplayers to our Guest Lineup!
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.
Check out her social media pages:
