Golden Auriel Cosplay

Lacey Barker, aka Golden Auriel, is a cosplayer and costume maker hailing from Pittsburgh, PA. She has over 10 years of sewing and costuming experience, most notably working in the workshops of Carnegie Mellon and CAPA Pittsburgh, working on costumes for various shows and operas. As a cosplayer, Lacey primarily focuses on the art of “crossplay,” and embraces androgyny and gender nonconformity in her costumes and hopes to encourage a new age of gender expression in the cosplay community. She finds a lot of enjoyment creating original designs of inhuman characters, as well as cosplaying flashy pretty boys, and villains/characters that are typically hated by their respective fandoms.
