Nichela Traber

Hello! My name is Nichela, also known as Artists Avenue Cosplay on various social media. I have been in the cosplay scene since I was only 8 years old and have been sewing my cosplays since I was 9! My grandmother taught me everything I know, having had a wide background in being a seamstress for many projects for people (Such as weddings or other special occasions). I make most, if not all, of my cosplays that I post; either by scratch or by upcycling! I’m currently a full-time student at Western Washington University, majoring in Theater and Costume Design, and minoring in entrepreneurship to own my own business in this industry. I do commissions on the side when I am available, and work hard to create my name as a designer, seamstress and cosplayer! I’m very excited to be apart of this year’s Kobe Kon as a guest and hope to see some faces at my panels and table, sharing my own experiences in making cosplays and being able to share my work!
