Costuming Guest of Honor:
Kitty Krell is a cosplayer from Denver, Colorado. Upon entering her first convention in 2000, the heavens opened up and a choir of angels rejoiced, for she had found a place she actually fit in.
Since then, she’s concentrated her energy on improving her craft, focusing on high-end construction, extravagant details, and corsetry. She owns a masquerade boutique in Denver.
