Court's Cosplay

Court's Cosplay is a queer, gender-fluid, award-winning entertainer and cosplayer. They call themself a gender-defying dragon whose favorite part of cosplay is being able to inhabit the character and put on a show. Being a full-time performer and currently pursuing their degree in dance, Court's performing strengths lie in ballroom, burlesque/nerdlesque, drag, pole performance, their comedy panel Conmedian, and singing. Cosplaying since late 2015, Court got their start in the cosplay world with Yu-gi-oh by cosplaying and dueling congoers as Seto Kaiba. Since then, they have been seen at several conventions – cosplay guesting, singing, doing comedy, and/or hosting one of their 30+ different panels. They also make up one half of the award-winning duo The Burnt Courthouse with their husband Dat Ashe Cosplay. Court loves being able to tell stories and making people laugh or smile and hopes to do so again at Soonercon this year!
