Creating has always been a passion for her. She started sewing at 5-years-old, which led to creating costumes for her favorite holiday, Halloween. From there it was only natural that she study fashion design in college and become a designer.
In 2012, she became addicted to cosplaying and just two years later found herself entering and placing in her first costume contest at C2E2. Envy the Green Fairy was born.
These days she spends her time as Wonder Woman doing charity work in the Grand Rapids area. Envy has also served as a cosplay guest and costume contest judge at events all over the Midwest including Astronomicon, NWI Comic-Con, and Hall Of Heroes. Her favorite character is Wonder Woman (she has nine versions with more to come). Envy is a big fan of the MCU, reading comics (Wonder Woman, of course), hanging out with friends, eating pizza and doing nerdy things!
If you see her at con stop and say hi, share a smile, give her a hug! You can follow her Twitter and Instagram @envythegrnfairy or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Envythegreenfairycosplay.
