Brandon clarke was born in boston, ma november 4th 1986. After high school he pursued a singing career recording an album but soon realized music wasn't something he wanted to do. At age 25 he discovered cosplay when a friend convinced him to go to a anime convention. He fell in love and since then found a new passion in life. He became Brandon the shapeshifter on account of him being known for cosplaying multiple costumes. He travels to a number of conventions in the new England area spreading the joy of cosplay along with his peers.

Greg Snider - Wonderllama
OUR FCBD COSPLAY JUDGE
I’ve been cosplaying for almost 5 years. My first convention was Boston Comic Con, where I cosplayed Barf from Spaceballs for the first time. It was a blast, and I was hooked. Since then, I’ve done a wide range of fun cosplays – Ray Gillette (Archer), Doof Warrior (Mad Max: Fury Road), Mr Incredible (The Incredibles), Gru (Despicable Me), and many more. I’ve won Best Couple and several Best Group contests. I’ve also hosted many events and costume contests, culminating in both the kids’ and the adults’ costume contests at Boston Comic Con.
Khepera Von Stitches
Although Khepera is very new to the Cosplay world, with not even a year under her belt, she has been designing clothes and making costumes and props for over 25 years. Her grandmother showed her how to hand sew when she was only 4 years old, but learned how to sew on a machine when she was 7 after receiving her very first sewing machine.
Best known for her Evil Lyn from the 1983 cartoon "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe", Khepera's favorite Cosplays are villains from her childhood. Khepera also enjoys Genderbending male villains and relishes in the challenge of re-imagining an already existing character.
"Villains are just more fun! And lets face it, they have better background stories!"
