Regan enjoys competing herself, and in 2019 was crowned the Global Champion of Cosplay at the Crown Championships of Cosplay world finals. You can also occasionally find them on prime time television and online featurettes, including ABC's "To Tell the Truth" and Adam Savage's "Tested." They have also worked alongside a number of companies to bring their characters to life through the art of cosplay, including Riot Games (League of Legends) and miHoYo (Genshin Impact).
