Karmaluna Cosplay is made up of Karmada Cosplay and Luna Lady of Light Cosplay. They have been cosplaying for 16 and 11 years respectfully. They have both won numerous individual and group awards for craftsmanship and performance and were sponsored to represent cosplay in the USA in the Netherlands in 2016. Both ladies love judging costumes and skits, and giving panels on topics like skits, craftsmanship, closet-cosplay, and drawing. Karmada has even published a book on cosplay: Epic Cosplay Costumes, available on Amazon, which is chock-full of advice for creating basic costume pieces. It is a great resource for beginners, and parents unsure about their child getting into cosplay.

Karmaluna is excited to be joining everyone at Anime Crossroads in March and they cannot wait to share their knowledge and love for the hobby with all of the attendees.
