I’m Mel Hoppe, or known as WindoftheStars Cosplay. I’m a costumer and gamer based in Nevada, USA who loves to create wearable works of art! I’ve been cosplaying since 2004 and I have accumulated a collection of 90+ costumes based on video games, movies, anime, manga, and of my own design. Myself and my work has been featured on TV, in printed and web publications, and as guests of honor at conventions in the USA and Internationally. Aside from myself I’ve also made costumes for fellow fans and had the honor of creating a Game of Thrones costume for George R. R. Martin.
