 Shemayne of Lemon Drop cosplay is an Alabama based cosplayer. She began cosplaying after being introduced to it by her cosplay partner, Carolina, nearly five years ago. Since starting with very little experience in sewing and most fabrication, she has since garnered an array of skills that grows with every new costume she makes. Now many of her costumes focus on fabric construction, including creating her own patterns, with many accessory elements made by sculpting and casting. Cosplay has become a creative outlet for Shemayne and she strives to continually improve in her capabilities and inspire others to do the same.

  Suzanne is a professional cosplayer from Alabama who began making costumes and attending conventions in 2006, when she won her first costuming award at Anime South.

An avid gamer since childhood, her first inspiration for cosplay came from playing the Final Fantasy franchise and has continued to grow ever since. After learning to sew with her aunt at age 16, she continued to expand her skills into prop and armor making over the next decade. She is a regular guest and panelist and conventions throughout the Southeast, and loves sharing her skills and knowledge with the cosplay community.

Although creating complex and accurate costumes is what drew her to the hobby, the friendships she has cultivated along the way are what kept her coming back for more.
