Kristy Podelnyk - That Honest Cosplayer:
Kristy was first exposed to the craft of Cosplay in 2011 when she reluctantly attended a Comic Con. She was awestruck by the craftsmanship and from then forward she was in love with it. While she has always been a casual crafter since her teen years, she jumped right in, starting small and has grown in her craft ever since. Through diligent research and tons of Google searches she has learned how to build EVA foam armor, sculpt polypropylene props, create silicone molds, resin cast props and wire LEDs. Kristy is last years Rencon Cosplay contest winner and is returning this year as one of our VIP judges!
