Enayla is a cosplayer, armorsmith, and propmaker based in Washington state. Inspired by the lavish costumes at a local comic con, she bought a garage-sale sewing machine and taught herself the basics. Nine years later, she actively works with fabric, foam, feathers, thermoplastics, resin, and a host of other materials (whatever will get the job done!). In that time, she has been featured by a wide variety of publications, hosted panels on various aspects of cosplay, and judged competitions both locally and internationally. Specializing in costumes with meticulous detail, massive scale, and complex engineering, she is always looking for ways to expand her skills and challenge reality. When not working on a project, she is active in sharing techniques and encouragement with the cosplay community. She is constantly inspired by the work of others, and is excited to see what attendees bring to Otafest Aurora!
