Please welcome Ryann KayKay!
Ryann Kay is an Arizona costume designer, circus performer and cosplayer. She started sewing at age 11 and started working as a theatre costume designer and seamstress at the age of 17. At 21 she discovered the cosplay community, which has now changed costuming from a job to a true passion. Since then she has created over 100 unique cosplays based on anime, comics, video games, and everything in between. She is always looking for new adventures and ways to bring her cosplays to life by combining it with her other passions such as aerials and acrobatics. Her core belief is that there is no right or wrong way to cosplay, it’s up to each individual to interpret a character and make it their own.
