LACE is excited to welcome back the gorgeous April Gloria to the mhk!
April Gloria is a cosplayer and Twitch streamer native to New Jersey, but currently living in Kansas. She grew up expressing herself creatively whether it be drawing, painting, hair and makeup styling, sewing, or other forms of crafting. In 2013 she decided to give cosplay a try and hasn’t looked back since. She is mostly drawn to video game characters and has over 30 costumes under her belt. April also streams the creation of her costumes on Twitch to give an inside look at the process and to build relationships with fans of her work. April’s specialties include painting and weathering fabrics and armor, and has taught herself to create patterns for sewing garments. She loves to chat with anyone who’s interested in learning more about techniques, materials, or cosplay in general.

LACE is excited to welcome back the SAVAGE one himself, KC comic book writer B. Clay Moore.
B. Clay Moore has written for DC, Marvel, Image, Oni, Top Cow, Wildstorm, and many others, but is probably best known for the many characters and concepts he had co-created for various comic book publishers, several of which are in various stages of development in Hollywood. These include HAWAIIAN DICK, THE EXPATRIATE and BATTLE HYMN for Image Comics, CASEY BLUE and THE WHISTLING SKULL for DC Comics, THE LEADING MAN for Oni Press, and SAVAGE for Valiant Comics.

Giving back to the community she loves and running panels that discuss unique issues in cosplay, Sophii strives to encourage and lift her fellow creators.
