She has been cosplaying and attending conventions since 2007 and has been featured in Cosmode magazine several times, Neo’s special “Your Tales of” mini-mag, as well as blogs and other social media. She formally learned to sew in home economics classes in 1996 and started out creating formal gowns and clothing.
In 2006, she started a small commission business for costumes, wigs, and props. To date, she has made 42 costumes, 16 of which are Tales characters, for herself and on commission, some of them multiple times. She competes and judges cosplay competitions mainly along the East Coast while participating in the occasional Artist Alley and giving panels about various topics. Her goal is to always improve and take the craft to the next level.
She enjoys helping other cosplayers out by making tutorials, giving advice, and providing costume consultation services.Ion studied in the animation field with an emphasis on concept work but ultimately found a comfortable place in the field of library and information science. When not involved in cosplay-related shenanigans she can be found at work, teaching, doing freelance art, jewelry-making, snowboarding/skiing, procrastinating, and just generally having a good time.

Special Guest: Travis Cook

Travis CookTravis Cook has been playing and experimenting with cooking since an early age. Having had his dad as a mentor and role model, Cook has always tried different combinations of ingredients; such an interest came in handy during his collegiate years and those following. While he has worked as a software developer since graduation, cooking is still a passion he indulges in on a regular basis.

In January 2012, Cook started the Tales of Symphonia Cookbook blog; in doing so, he brought together his love of cooking with his love of gaming.  The original goal was to take around 80 of Tales of Symphonia’s most unique recipe variations and bring them to life. After more than a year, the blog was renamed as Tales of Cooking, with the addition of recipes from Tales of the Abyss and Tales of Vesperia.Cook continues to run talesofcooking.tumblr.com, with hopes of adding recipes from other Tales games in the future.
