Pockythief is a cosplayer, self-taught seamstress, and makeup artist from Chicago, Illinois. After going to her first convention in 2010 she fell in love with the hobby and began learning how to create her own costumes. She enjoys everything from sewing the simplest garment to making full armor or crazy large props. She strives to improve her craft by always trying to learn new and different techniques as well as utilizing many resources to help bring the outfits and the character to life. Cosplaying for her has been an outlet for her creativity to shine through. Her goal is to share her knowledge, skill, and passion for the hobby with everyone who enjoys cosplay too.
