Galaxy Gh0st is a midwestern cosplayer who first started cosplaying in 2014. Her first cosplays were from cartoons and webcomics, and now she mostly finds inspiration in whatever design has the poofiest skirt or the shiniest embellishments. She especially loves making redesigns of popular characters, or adding her own twist to the original design for a more personal touch. Her hobbies outside of cosplay include playing video games and reading, which both tend to have the unfortunate side effect of adding more cosplays to the ever-growing list.
