Shannon Noelle is a Southern New Jersey cosplayer and artist who has always had a passion to create since childhood. Starting her cosplay career in 2011, cosplay has been a way to portray some of her favorite characters and has helped build confidence both socially and in her crafting abilities. With an eye for every detail, each cosplay created has acted as a stepping stone towards learning and mastering new skills including but not limited to: sewing, LEDs, motors, foam armor, wig styling and much more. Shannon prides herself on being 100% self-taught through her journey with her very first cosplay being handmade. The things she looks forward to the most with each costume is the research that goes into planning the build and figuring out which technique or materials will be utilized to reach the end goal.
