Katie George is an award-winning cosplayer living in Atlanta, GA. She has been cosplaying and competing since 2004 and has a BFA in Costume and Makeup Design for theatre/film from Auburn University. In 2012, Katie won the chance to represent the United States in the international World Cosplay Summit in Nagoya, Japan. In 2013, she was featured in the Emmy-winning PBS documentary Cosplay: Crafting a Secret Identity. In 2014, Katie joined the Heroes of Cosplay cast for season 1.5 on the SyFy channel. She has been a cosplay guest at several conventions around the world, leading panels on a variety of subjects related to cosplay and judging cosplay contests for craftsmanship and performance.
When Katie isn't crafting, she works full-time on the marketing team for the corporate office of a popular national restaurant brand. Her favorite hobby outside of cosplay is karaoke, with a predilection for Disney, musicals, K-pop, J-pop, anisongs, and every once in a while, a good power ballad.
