Quaintrelle has been cosplaying for nearly a decade, and does it simply for the fun of it. A veteran con-goer, emcee and performer, and with numerous builds under her many belts, Quaintrelle is proud of her record as a mod-cosplayer. Instead of building the majority from scratch, she'll have hours of fun finding pieces that can be modified and put together to create the various cosplays she's created. Featured in the SDCC award-winning documentary "Cosplay Universe", she's so happy to be part of the organizing team that is bringing AnchorCon to Clayton!
