Livicole Cosplay

Livicole is a costume maker, cosplayer and model from Queens, NY. She first got into cosplay in 2017 when she attended a convention in a hand-made Psylocke costume and immediately fell in love with the hobby. Livicole makes costumes both "big" and "small" - ranging from World of Warcraft armor builds to casual Pokemon redesigns and is constantly trying to push herself to learn more in order to create bigger and better costumes. On average, Livicole spends 6+ hours a day on cosplay and makes over 25 costumes a year. She also runs an Etsy shop where she sells cosplay props and digital templates. Cosplay has become somewhat of an addiction for her, but when she's not working on her latest costume, you can find her watching anime, playing video games, or relaxing with her cats.
