Cosplaying since 2009, Nikki has found a passion and love for sewing, designing, and cosplaying. Completely self-taught she has learned to create her own patterns and sew her own cosplays. In 2010, just one year from starting, friends and family started to request commissions.

Since then she has been able to find a way to further her sewing abilities as well as share the cosplay world to others. Now Nikki has set up shops online and at select cons to sell cosplay accessories. She is now branching into the world of fashion, combining cosplay and fashion into one.

An original design created with the help of Hermsi (artist) this cosplay was the first design to really showcase the love of designing. This cosplay really showed the importance of fabric choice for every outfit and design.

Her first collection: Victorian Fantasy is currently waiting to be unveiled in 2014 featuring seven fresh designs in hopes of merging the fantasy world of cosplay with fashion. While this is only the first collection being released, Nikki has in store a few more collections eagerly waiting to be completed. One of which collection features ballgowns.\

Years of creating different types of cosplays and outfits lead her to find a sense of style. Through the time she has found herself going back to ballgowns constantly. In efforts to create more ballgowns for other cosplayers to also take inspiration from, her next collection features a twist with disney and ballgowns. (More to be unveiled later)
