Mangoe Cos is a longtime Chicagoland cosplayer who has been attending conventions since 2008. Her love for anime started with her first manga in 1999 and she hasn't looked back since! From closet cosplay to crafting from scratch, Mangoe loves it all! She advocates for an inclusive, kind community, and encourages everyone to just have fun cosplaying, no matter how 'serious' they take it. Mangoe attends conventions across the country to perform panels, meet fellow enthusiasts, and share the passion of bringing anime to life. With multiple shoots and characters cosplayed every month, this is by far her most cherished hobby. She'll never get too old for anime, and is happy to see the community grow!
