Hall of Femme

A full-time artist and lifelong nerd, Petra has been involved with cosplay for over 20 years. From costume design and garment alterations to 3-D printing and questionable repurposing of household items, nothing is safe from the challenge of a new project. Petra’s cosplay deck ranges from comic books and video games to historical costuming, and she will tackle any character or concept that catches her interest. Using creativity as an outlet for self discovery as well as a means to connect with other artists, Petra enjoys the interaction with the thriving local and online cosplay community. A collection of her work was featured as the Skirvin Artist in Residence 2021/22.
