Sarah Rae Cosplay
Jetpack is proud to announce that Sarah Rae Cosplay, winner of last year's FCBD Cosplay Contest, will be joining us as one of our judges!
Sarah has been cosplaying since 2012, when she was asked to bring her cousin to a convention. Having a theater degree, she decided to leap in feet first with a full costume and hasn't stopped since. Now she tries to make every part of her costume, and enjoys trying to take on projects that will challenge her skills and creativity. She enjoys trying out new techniques, researching ways to make pieces, and using new tools. The thrill of the craft is what drives her to try harder each time, seeing how closely she can replicate the pieces. Her favorite part of cosplaying is how everyone becomes a family, helping each other out. From the most basic cosplays to the most elaborate, everyone has a compliment to give one another. Cosplay is for everyone, no matter who they are.
Jetpack Comics is very excited to have Chris Sherman join our FCBD Cosplay Contest panel of judges!
Chris is a master prop builder with over 15 years of experience! Chris has always been drawn to the villainous side of things as well as the obscure interesting characters. His first cosplay was Black Manta back in 2013 and since then he has constructed major characters such as Alien/Jules from Pulp Science Fiction, Super Skrull, The Muppet's' Uncle Deadly and recently Zoltar from Battle of the Planets. He enjoys all facets of cosplay art but finds himself working more with EVA and other foams. Seeing everyone's creativity no matter what the skill level is always a thrill for him and he also loves learning from others as well as showing off his own masterpieces. This past winter Chris wrote and produced a comedy spoof about office life among super villains, using local cosplayers as his actors! Keep an eye out for this gem, slated for release in June.
Jetpack Comics is very pleased to bring Carley Winn Cosplay to our amazing line up of judges!
Carley is a well established seamstress with many cosplay talents! Carley loves cosplaying Harley Quinn and has been doing so since 1998. She is a long time comic book fan of everything from Batman to X-men. She also is very knowledgeable of retro and table top games. She was taught sewing by her mother, who is a re-enactor, through middle school but is mostly self taught with help from Gosu Loli magazine. She has made super hero suits, Lolita dresses, Rococo ball gowns and star wars flight suits. She most recently made a troop of 15 robot costumes for a LARP group utilizing a mix of sewing spandex and plastic molding with light elements and eva foam. What she loves most about cosplaying is cosplaying with others. She loves being in groups and is a member of Hero Army and Cosplayers for a Cause.
Gregg has hosted many events and costume
contests, culminating in both the kids’
and the adults’ costume contests at
Boston Comic Con.
