Mogchelle started in cosplay by just being an average geek attending an anime convention in 1999. Her love for the artwork in anime, video games, and comic books made her want to bring the 2D images from the pages and screen to real life. She’s also been featured in several national and international magazines, and several online entertainment news sources for her costuming. Over the years she has won countless awards internationally for both craftsmanship and performance on the masters level. Conventions across the country often ask Michelle to present panels/workshops on various cosplay build techniques. They vary from lightweight armor creation, thermoplastics, molding and casting, wig design, special FX makeup, wings, etc. More are added every year, in the effort to spread her love for the art of Cosplay. She has done work for The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, Manga Entertainment and video game, comic book, and anime publishers across the country. She can also be seen doing workshops for public libraries during the summer throughout the Midwest.
Every year, she chooses a charity organization to help raise funds for by donating a portion of the profits of her craft and print sales!
