Panelist Announcement: Spectra!


Spectra is not only a foam armor expert who has run panels on the topic at New York Comic Con, but is Nerd Caliber‘s own AAA games writer. His cosplays draw most from comic books and movies, and his Frozone is so spot on that you almost think that Pixar based the character design on Spectra in the first place.


Panelist Announcement: Khepera Cosplay!

Khepera Cosplay

Khepera leapt onto the cosplay scene in 2014, and immediately started racking up cosplay contests awards, both for her amazing crafting skills and her ability to inhabit a character so completely. Right out of the gate she exhibited mastery of sewing, armor and prop making with foam and worbla, and makeup and wigs.


Panelist Announcement: Dave Yang Photography!

Dave Yang Photography

Dave is a professional photographer who shoots just about every kind of content, including beautiful cosplay images. Based in New England, Dave travels all over the country and is almost as well known for his black tees and Grumpy Cat-like frown as much as he is for his ability to get the best out of Golden Hour lighting.


Panelist Announcement: Cowbutt Crunchies

Cowbutt Crunchies

Cowbutt Crunchies, a duo of Bostonian cosplayers with a weird name and way too much love for dressing up, return for a second year to CAPE.  With ten years of cosplay experience under their belts, they’re big fans of sharing that knowledge with others in the form of tutorials, advice, and more recently wigworking tips as Gothichamlet participates in Arda’s Iron Wig contest.



Lucky Grim Creative

I met Rachael when I first rediscovered cons, at Anime Boston 2008, and realized I was missing out on one of the most creative aspects of the nerdiness I love, cosplay. I berated the poor woman with questions about her Amaterasu outfit for at least a half hour, and she graciously answered every one. An amazing talent and a natural teacher.
