I'm Olly, I'm 26. I've been building costumes and costume parts for 3 years and attending conventions for at least 7 years. Though I don't have a variety of costumes, my taste in pop culture is the opposite.

Courtney started out as an artist frequenting conventions in the 2010s and quickly became involved in the cosplay communities surrounding these events. She has now been cosplaying for around 8 years and continues to create artwork in her spare time. Courtney found that cosplaying was a great way to get out from behind the table at conventions and really become involved with others who share the same love and passion for pop culture as her.
