Hayley Elise

Hayley_crop1080px
Hayley Elise is a Sydney cosplayer and writer who grew up making fantastical costumes for herself and never really stopped. She’s been cosplaying since she first discovered the hobby in 2007, and since then has travelled to conventions across Australia and internationally to shoot and show off her costumes. This eventually led to a career writing about cosplay and pop culture for various magazines and online publications. Hayley now works full time at Kotaku, Gizmodo and Lifehacker Australia, where she spends her time writing cosplay features, game previews and really bad Star Wars takes. Though working full time leaves much less time for actually making cosplay, Hayley has stayed active in the community, sharing her years of experience by hosting cosplay panels at conventions across Australia.
