Puzzled Orca Cosplay has been cosplaying since 2010. After a few simple sewing lessons from her grandma, she became self taught with sewing and crafting when she learned that cosplaying helped her gain self confidence and eliminate some of her social anxiety, and the rest is history! She creates costumes from a variety of characters, including ones from anime, video games, movies and TV. Some of the characters she has done are Kim Possible, Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Suicune from Pokemon, Danny Sexbang from Ninja Sex Party, and over 15 other costumes. She has also done costume panels at local conventions and loves to talk about anything cosplay.
Jessie "Plajus" Holewinski and Mac "Link" Olson have been running a cosplaying skit YouTube channel together called Plinkoceans since 2012. Mac is a linguistics major and Jessie is a creative writing major at UWEC. Jessie is very into making prop weapons for characters and Mac is talented in make up, and both are pretty average sewers! They enjoy analyzing and applying feminism in the cosplaying community, and to their channel.

Natalya Bartelt is a 21 year old cosplayer from Eau Claire, WI. She's been cosplaying for as long as she can remember, from being a lion from The Lion King with a tutu on her head at 5, to a hand-made Merida from Brave at 21, you're more likely to find her in-costume than in 'normal' clothes! She became more serious about cosplay in 2010 when she started sewing her own costumes, from adding details to existing clothes, to tudor gowns! Her current cosplay obsession is anything with armor, effects, and LED lights! She's cosplayed Marvel's Agent Peggy Carter, Teen Titan's Ravyn, MCU's Black Widow, MCU's Scarlet Witch, Disney's Merida, Hetalia's Prussia, Italy, and Belarus, Hellsing's Alucard, and more! Her upcoming cosplay plans include Overwatch's Zarya, Hetalia's Russia, Ellie from 'The Last of Us', MCU's Hella,
and the next cool character she sees.
Trey Vidmn is screen actor, vocal impressionist/actor, musician, composer, cosplayer and Youtuber with nearly 1,000 subscribers on my channel. I have been into Marvel, DC, Anime and especially Star Wars since I was very little, and my brother and I have always wanted to be the characters we've seen on the screens and in the books. After we made cardboard creations we started finding tutorials on how to better our costuming on Youtube and that's when we discovered cosplay. Ever since I have been perfecting my craft in armor, costume and prop construction, so much so I created a Youtube channel to show case the creations and show how to make them, with one of the videos hitting over 150 thousand views. It's one of my passions and I love it so much.
