Katie George is an award-winning cosplayer living in Atlanta, GA. She has been cosplaying and competing since 2004 and has a BFA in Costume and Makeup Design for theatre/film from Auburn University. In that time, she has made over 100 costumes for herself and others.

In 2012, Katie won the chance to represent the United States in the international World Cosplay Summit in Nagoya, Japan.

In 2013, she was featured in the Emmy-winning PBS documentary Cosplay: Crafting a Secret Identity. In 2014, Katie joined the Heroes of Cosplay cast for season 1.5 on the SyFy channel. She has been a cosplay guest or cosplay events coordinator at several conventions in the US and Mexico, speaking on a variety of subjects related to cosplay in panels and/or judging cosplay contests for craftsmanship and performance.

When Katie isn’t crafting, she works full-time on the marketing team for the corporate office of a popular national restaurant brand (follow her on Twitter long enough and you’re bound to find out which one). Her favorite hobby outside of cosplay is karaoke, with a predilection for Disney, musicals, K-pop, J-pop, anisongs, and every once in a while, a good power ballad.
