CutiePieSensei is a self admitted cosplay addict who technically did her first cosplay about 6 years ago. She has always loved anime and video games and discovered her love for cosplay and conventions with Anime Weekend Atlanta in 2013, where she cosplayed Korra from Legend of Korra.
Since then, she has become known for her incredible Marvel cosplays and unique mashups – like her recent Game of Thrones x Disney crossover for Dragoncon 2019!
She has pushed herself to learn more with every cosplay she makes and has been featured for her incredible skill on the #MarvelBecomming series and SyFyWire.

When she’s not cosplaying or streaming video games as a Mixer partner, she hosts and shoutcasts for various esports leagues. Don’t be shy – come say hi!
