Jewelcat Cosplay

Jewelcat Cosplay is a cosplay duo from Chicago consisting of Julie and Christy. They met in the cosplay club at their college and immediately bonded over the manga Shugo Chara. Through their love of cosplay they formed a friendship that has lasted for over a decade. 

With Julie's passion for performance and Christy's love of craftsmanship, the two finally teamed up in 2017 as Jewelcat Cosplay, winning their  first Best in Show title that same year.  The duo would go on to compete throughout the Midwest, winning multiple top titles. In 2018, they became WCS Team USA at Anime Expo and represented the USA at the World Cosplay Summit finals in Nagoya, Japan. They are the current USA representatives for the 2020 edition of the Clara Cow’s Cosplay Cup finals in the Netherlands.

When they aren't cosplaying, Julie spends her time playing winter sports and writing novels while Christy enjoys drawing and video games. They are so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Naka-Kon 2020 and hope to share their love of sewing and performance with everyone they can!
