Raksmey Prak is a college graduate and has been a cosplayer since 2010; over 7 years now. Her first anime convention was Otakon 2010, and her first cosplay was Farah from the Prince of Persia: Two Thrones. Since then, she has loved designing, crafting, and making cosplays, and her love for attending conventions grew. She has, since then, set her alias name to AutumnVirus Cosplay. She has seen herself become more of an armor based cosplayer because she enjoys crafting, building props and armor.
Dynamic Duchess Cosplay has been an avid cosplayer since 2016. While she's renowned for her RWBY cosplays, Dynamic Duchess is also notorious for her love of villains, psychopaths, and yanderes. You'll catch her as Neapolitan and Cinder Fall of RWBY, Jinx of League of Legends, and Gasai Yuno of Future Diary (Mirai Nikki).
