In anticipation of @Abradorable’s appearance at Anime St. Pete, Florida Comic Cons, a news media website that covers conventions and cosplayers in The Sunshine State, featured @Abradorable in its March issue of the Florida Cosplay Digital Magazine.
@Abradorable’s cosplay origins
Inspired by Sailor Moon cosplayers when she was 11-years-old, @Abradorable began her cosplay journey as a teenager. Her first costume was Flonne from Digaea in 2009. Since then, her costume-making skills have come a long way. From armor-builds to sewing to wig-styling, @Abradorable is truly a jack-of-all trades and has proven her skills in multiple Florida competitions.

Yuudachi from Azur Lane
“Yuudachi is my all time favorite character. So much love and time went into building this cosplay to get every single detail right. I entered this cosplay on a whim to Metrocon’s 2019 costume contest and took home Best in Show! I couldn’t believe it!! To win a contest I dreamt of winning for years with my best girl in the whole world was magic and a moment I’ll never forget. She means a lot to me.”

Sister of Battle from Warhammer 40k
This cosplay was made over the course of two months crafting up to 14 hours per day. All the hard work is evident when looking at the fine details. @Abradorable entered into the Holiday Matsuri 2021 competition with fellow cosplayer, @amandamastrapa and they took home Best Craftsmanship. They look forward to sharing their designs in the Netherlands this June.
