MeltingMirror is a Canadian cosplayer and an International Costuming Guild master-level cosplayer who has been creating costumes since 2004. She is a fan of variety, choosing characters from different media (anime, gaming, comics, movies, & original designs) and picking up many different skills including armor making, leatherwork, wig styling, woodworking, beading, and more. When she isn’t competing in masquerades, she is judging them and running panels at conventions. Online, she spreads her knowledge and advice about cosplay while also nurturing the positive influence of the hobby. Her work has been published in magazines such as COSMODE and CosplayGen, and featured on websites such as Kotaku, Dorkly, MTV, and Deviantart.
