Alexa is a cosplayer, artist, and 8-bit gamer from St. Louis, Missouri. After spending years piecing costumes together and creating her own costumes for movie openings, comic nights, and Halloween, she discovered the world of cosplay in 2012 and attended her first convention in 2013. Alexa’s armored version of Cheetara from the Thundercats is easily her most recognizable costume, but 2016 has some big projects on the books with Armored Rainbow Dash, Charizard, and Couture de Force Ariel as part of the year’s plans.
In early 2014, with the support and encouragement of her friends in the geek community, Alexa came out publicly as a transgender female. Since coming out, she has been a guest at conventions across the country and hosted panels about diversity and acceptance at our beloved events and in everyday life.
