The Mystic Artisan
The Mystic Artisan is an award-winning cosplayer from the Pacific Northwest. While best known for her unusual dyeing techniques and textile work, her true expertise lies in combining techniques from multiple mediums to find creative solutions to cosplay problems. Aseliacon and the Tales series first inspired her to cosplay, and still have a special place in her heart! Her favorite parts of cosplay are solving cosplay engineering puzzles, and giving panels to share her knowledge with other cosplayers. She is assisted by her dogs Sophie and Prince, who attempt to keep her from overworking by reminding her to take regular snuggle breaks. (And by stealing her pattern pieces.)
