Kristen Hughey

Kristen Hughey

By combining her intense love of gaming, skills in crafting and sewing, and zest for learning, Kristen Hughey was able to bring her own fantasy to life and become an international costumer. What started as an outlet to meet local, like­minded friends quickly became a portal to realms she never thought possible. She has since expanded her craft by becoming a published model, representing major companies and traveling to appear at events as a guest, judge, panelist and exhibitor. Her ability to share her love for all things geek and to now meet like­ minded friends around the world is her favorite aspect of this adventure. Even when she is not traveling, Kristen is known for her highly interactive online presence through social media and her Twitch TV gaming streams (www.twitch.tv/kr1st3n). Outside of cosplay, gaming and her love of all things pin­up, Kristen has started a charity called Heroic. With the tagline "be heroic," the idea is that people will be reminded of their own power to make a difference in the world. All proceeds are donated to non­profit organizations.

Visit Kristen and become a part of her #HugheyCrew at www.facebook.com/kristenhugheycosplay, www.kristenhughey.com, Twitter: @kristenhughey, Instagram: @kristenhugheycosplay, and SnapChat: OKristenHughey.
