InbeonCon 2018 Cosplay Contest Judges
Kristen CorradenoEdward Fotography
Shut Up Kristen is a Long Island based content creator and cosplayer who has been obsessed with cosplay since she first tried it in 2012 (if you don’t count all of those years she went to the Harry Potter book and movie premieres dressed as Hermione, of course.) She loves to cosplay everything from Lady Mipha from Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to a warrior version of Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. When she isn’t glued to her sewing machine, you can find her making sketch comedy videos for her YouTube channel, hosting the podcast XoXo: A Gossip Girl Podcast, or alongside Tom Catt Con Mom hosting the weekly cosplay live show Catt & Kristen. Kristen is also lucky enough to be the official Sailor Mars for the cosplay group Moon Menagerie! She believes the cosplay community is one that the rest of the world could use to learn from, an atmosphere of inclusion, love, and support and can’t wait to continue attending conventions and watch the community grow. She is also a Ravenclaw, which she finds very important for you to know.
