The internet knows me more widely as Sumikins. I live in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States, have been cosplaying since 2002 (that's 18 years!), and I'm an active cosplay competitor, judge, and event coordinator, as well as a fledgling photographer.
I have represented the USA at three international competitions (WCS 2010, CICAF 2017, and C4 2019) and, along with my cosplay partner Rynn, have placed second overall at two of them. I also currently hold the position of Cosplay Coordinator for SakuraCon in Seattle, WA.
On this site you'll find a portfolio of costumes I've made, as well as a selection of my favorite performances. With time, I hope the site will evolve into something sleek and streamlined, but also grow to include my cosplay photography, and other works.
The best way to keep up with me and my work is to check out my Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook accounts. If you want to know about my accomplishments and credentials you can download my Cosplay Resume.

COSTUMES + PROPS
I've been making costumes since 2002, and in that time I have built more than 50 costumes (not all of them documented) of varying complexity for both casual wear and competition. You can check out full write-ups and more photos of each costume from the PORTFOLIO page.
