Hazel grew up in Roanoke, VA while always feeling awkward around others. Her mind would constantly dream of fantasy and science fiction worlds. She became the stereotypical band nerd playing the trombone in symphonic, jazz and marching band and excelling in school and college. She started modeling early on and found it to be fun but lacking. So she tried acting and loved it, however, responsibilities always seemed to get in the way. Her first cosplay was back in 2006, for Anime Mid-Atlantic in Richmond, VA; it was the first time she got to see the cosplay world and immediately fell in love. In 2012, she was asked to be the superhero, Baroness, for local comic store B & D Comics. Her heart melted with the fans and realized just how much she could encourage people through cosplay. Shortly afterwards she began making other superheroes like Zatanna, Seven of Nine, Iron Fist and Cammy. By traveling to many different conventions every month, she got to melt into the great con community of where she now calls home. She has had award-winning costumes and has many ideas going forward.
