I am first and foremost a creative girl who loves video games. I've always enjoyed crafting and when I worked up the courage to explore cosplay is when I officially opened Pandora's Box. I love transforming for each costume and each photoshoot.

In the beginning, I was but a shy nerd with no outlet except World of Warcraft and rock music my dad hated. Now I'm a cosplayer, model, armor and prop builder, makeup artist, entertainer, streamer, video maker, painter, writer, and graphic designer. I wear way too many hats, have no free time, and struggle to stay awake some nights, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

 

My name is Breanna, and I've been a cosplayer since 2014. I began cosplaying due to my love for costuming, mostly for Halloween, and after my first con experience I was hooked. Since then I've been growing in the cosplay world and continuously working on improving my current cosplays and setting plans for new ones. I do not make any of my costumes myself because unfortunately I'm not that talented, but I do spend a lot of hard earned money on very well made costumes that I will not claim to be my own work. I'm mostly known for my Lady Deadpool cosplay that has been growing for three years now. I have many mashups for Deadpool as well, my favorite probably being my Sithpool. 

I tend to cosplay characters I personally love and enjoy. You won't see me in a costume just because someone else wanted me in it. If you would like to keep up with my cosplay you can follow me on Instagram or Facebook at FedoraPool.
