Piratecat Cosplay is a cosplayer from Huntsville, Alabama who has been cosplaying for almost OVER ten years–sheesh!. Starting with Star Wars cosplay groups, she quickly realized that her true love wasn’t really Star Wars, but creating a tribute to her most-loved characters no matter where they were from. Pirate has a closet full of all of her creations, mostly focused on World of Warcraft and Love Live, but with countless other anime, Disney, movies…whatever she loves!
She enjoys sewing, crafting armor, and especially loves to add in LEDs and practical effects to her costumes! She has won awards at Dragoncon, MTAC, and here at Rocket City Anime, and has competed as far away as Blizzcon in California. She loves cosplay competitions, whether competing or judging, because she gets to surround herself with others who enjoy crafting and have a love for the character they portray. If you see Pirate around the con, just ask “how did you make (that costume part)?”–she’ll light up and tell you all about it, and happily chat to you about your costume as well!
