By combining her intense love of gaming, skills in crafting and sewing, and zest for learning, Kristen Hughey was able to bring her own fantasy to life and become an international costumer. What started as something she would “try out, just for fun” and to meet local, like-minded friends quickly became a portal to realms she never thought possible. She has since expanded her craft by representing major companies and traveling to appear at events as a featured cosplayer. Her ability to share her love for all things geek and to now meet like-minded friends around the world is her favorite aspect of this career.
Outside of cosplay and gaming, Kristen has started a charity called Heroic. With the tagline “be heroic,” the idea is that people will be reminded of their own power to make a difference in the world. All proceeds are donated to organizations such as The Make-A-Wish Foundation.
