I am relatively new to the cosplay scene. I have been Father Christmas for the past 5 years, the Pink Pirate for far longer, and most recently Jedi Master Claus. My wife and I tag-team the cosplay. We design the garb, she constructs it, and I craft the accessories. I love being Santa and I try to emulate him as much as I can. I have lots of experience working with special needs kids and adults and nothing brings me more joy than seeing them light up when Santa comes into the room. In my other life I am an actor, writer, director, occasional producer, and prop and cosplay accessory crafter. I may not get to as many cons as I would like, but I love the community.
