WindoftheStars, aka Mel Hoppe, has been a geek all her life. Since she was young, she has been into comic books and video games. In 2004 she started to put her artistic energy into creating costumes from her favorite games, movies, comics, animes, mangas, and even creates original costumes of her own design. Since then she has created over 80 costumes for herself and others; many of which have won awards including Best of Show. Her colorful and elaborate costume works have been seen in online and print publications across the world including Cosmode, Kotaku, TokyoPOP and OtakuUSA. WindoftheStars has also had the honor of modeling her costumes at shows for Kotobukiya, DC Comics and Bandai. In April of this year she was apart of Anna Fischer's The Wild Places cosplay photo project, which has received much online acclaim. When she is not working on costumes for herself, she makes high quality cosplay accessories for her Etsy store or works at a top tier alterations shop in Northern Nevada as a professional tailor.
