Judging Cosplay Contests:

As a professional in my field, I can bring all my knowledge to your costume contest! I specialize in judging craftsmanship competitions, having won a few myself. I also strive to bring the best and most accessible experience to participants as well as put on a successful show.

 

Past events I've judged: Anime Boston (8+ years), FanExpo Cleveland,  Drawncon, ConnectiCon

Having worked full time as an educator for the past 5 years, I can offer a wide range of panels for
