Vancouver, BC, Canada
Sarah Adams, known within the geek community by her nickname "Smare", is a professional cosplayer, musician, voice actress and lifestyle blogger born and raised in Vancouver, BC. The niece of Canadian rock singer-songwriter Bryan Adams, this rising young starlet is both humble and altruistic, determined to spread a message of self-love and self-confidence throughout the anime and gaming community. She remains a talented inspiration to teens and young adults worldwide.
Self-taught in all aspects of her creative life, Sarah began costuming and singing at the tender age of seven, landing lead roles in musicals and theatrical shows (including Ariel in a production of Disney: The Musical when she was twelve). She has been a professional cosplayer since 2007, with characters she has costumed ranging from Legend of Zelda and Sailor Moon to My Little Pony and her original high fantasy designs.
Sarah's electric-bubblegum pop music career began in 2013 when she was talent-spotted by British nerd rocker Kieran Strange, who immediately signed her to her independent record label. The two girls have since formed a costuming and modelling duo under the brand Hitbox, and will be appearing together as cosplayers and musical guests at conventions all across North America in 2014/15.
