Started cosplaying way back in 2005, now its my 10th year! I’m constantly challenging myself with new techniques in order to improve on my costumes. I’ve competed in multiple masquerades and achieved master level status.
Now, Yume just wants to travel around the world attending cons and making new friends ♥

From Toronto, Canada. Kitsurie started Cosplaying and making cosplays in 2008 with the first ever costume Kairi from Kingdom hearts 2. She has had many years of prop and sewing experience under her belt since then. As of late she has been finding challenges in perfecting the character through makeup, wig styling and story telling through photos.
Yume and Kitsurie have been cosplaying together since 2011 and enjoy creating content and costumes together. Overall all they love traveling and meeting people around the world who enjoy the same hobby.
The most recent projects include expanding into YouTube to provide fun and entertaining videos for thier followers to enjoy. Along with an cosplay style webtoon starring their own Original characters Kyu and Jihun.
More than anything Kitsurie hopes to inspire and bring happiness to the people who support her. She will continue to challenge herself and she hope you guys are down to join her as well!
