Nuggins has been a cosplayer since 2010. During this journey, she has gained close friends and valuable social insight. While styling to the highest quality possible, she hopes to reinforce the ultimate message shared by many of her peers: That cosplay is for everyone – no matter your age, weight, skin color, health condition, or gender identity. There are no limits to our shared love in fandom as long as we remember to treat each other with respect and speak out against abusive behavior
