I (Anna Stasia) began my cosplay adventure in 2013. In that time I have made nearly 100 cosplays. I focuse on sewing intensive cosplays and utilizes my 15+ years of experience as a self-taught seamstress. Every year, I tackle one intricate sewing project, aiming to improve my skills. I am constantly seeking new techniques and trying new things to improve my creations.

Recently, I began adding more armor and prop building to my repertoire. Since starting my cosplay journey, I have crafted various items with worbla, sculpting clay, resin casting, LED lights, and  EVA foam. I love to challenge myself and learn new talents so I tackle at least one project per year to hone my armor and prop making skills.

Because I am entirely self-taught, I try to give back to the community by creating tutorials for my cosplays. Hoping others will learn from my mistakes and my builds, I document as many of my cosplays as possible. These tutorials are posted on my website, as well as shared on social media accounts and in groups on Facebook. I have a beginners sewing panel and am also putting together a series of panels on different sewing topics.

Additionally, I am a body, age, and race positive cosplayer. I firmly believe anyone can cosplay their favorite character. Being a curvy cosplayer, I aim to use my own self-confidence in cosplay to inspire others.

When not cosplaying, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son. I’m an avid reader, and even dabble in gaming occasionally. I am teaching myself photography, as well as photo editing. And I recently got into dice making.

  1. Hello there! I work for one of the Brevard County Library branches (Franklin DeGroodt Library in Palm Bay). I am the one who organizes the kids section at Library Con. I have a pretty awesome teen group that meets every week for activities like life skills, cooking, crafting, etc. I was wondering if you might be available to come teach a mini workshop on how to Cosplay? It would be sometime in the Spring. Please let me know if you are available and interested. I know our teens would be super excited for this to happen!
