Halloween has been my favorite holiday since high school when my friends and I dressed up as the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus. I did closet and DI costumes until 2015 when Beck leather and Crafts started selling Worbla and providing classes. I got hooked and I decided to begin my first major costume in 2016. Leather became my favorite medium when I finished my first piece for my Leaf Man armor, with which I won 3rd place intermediate at the 2016 Halloween Expo. Working at Beck Leather and Crafts gave me access to many resources for learning leather work and I have loved learning about it.
Note: Shana is modest about her craft. She has a wide variety of cosplay skills, leather being among her best. She’s an excellent instructor and has spent untold hours coaching & helping folks with their projects. And she loves to geek out!
