Hey there! I'm Koralene, a cosplayer based out of PA. I grew up in the town of Lock Haven, where cosplay isn't the norm, so I only discovered it 2 years ago. My best friend introduced me to anime, so I made him go to a convention with me and I have loved it ever since.
I enjoy cosplay because I believe it brings a whole community of people together, and gives us the chance to make life long friends that have the same interest as ourselves. Many of us learn a lot of new skills and we get the chance to show off our hard work. It also lets us be our favorite characters for a weekend and bring our fantasy world we love so much into reality if only for a weekend at a convention.
I used to buy my costumes because I didn't know a thing about sewing or crafting, however I became skilled in armor and props. I also began sewing my own outfits, teaching myself along the way with internet research and a lot of YouTube tutorials. Cosplay also got me into photography and editing.
My hard work seems to be paying off as I won 2nd place in the Novice category of the Setsucon walk on, and I was the winner of Philly's Next Top Cosplayer. I am really excited to continue competing and creating, and loving every minute along the way.
