the Lo-Fi Ky

An award-winning cosplayer, Ky got into the hobby in 2017 after moving to Oklahoma from Alaska. She has hosted panels and judged cosplay contests at events across the state of Oklahoma. Believing craftsmanship to be key, Ky has experience in sewing (both hand and machine), hand embroidery, resin casting, 3-D printing (plastic and resin), foam work, make up, painting, weathering, and detailing. When she’s not working on cosplay, she can be found glued to her computer writing, creating digital art, or working in CSS and HTML/DOHTML coding. An avid gamer, Ky enjoys playing on the PC, the PS5, or the Nintendo Switch, predominantly playing games with a solid storyline—most recently Dying Light 2 and Unpacking. She reads on occasion and really likes snuggling her cat, Onix.

Wear Five Layers in 100 Degree Weather Without Dying

It's important to ensure your costume and prop(s) will be functional in the weather and for long-term wear during your costumed function. Making sure different fabrics are breathable or include a cooling vest, have moisture barriers, etc. can mean the difference between weathering or ruining a costume.
