I’m Krisztina, known in the cosplay world as CatleenCosplay. Originally from Hungary, I now call Albstadt, Germany, my home. My journey as a cosplayer and crafter began in 2012, and since then, I’ve been crafting costumes and props inspired by games, anime, movies, and TV series. To date, I’ve brought to life over a hundred unique costumes!
Cosplay has opened up incredible opportunities for me. I’ve had the honor of being a guest and a judge at various conventions, as well as being featured in interviews on TV, radio, and in several international magazines. I’ve also had the privilege of collaborating with renowned companies like Givenchy, The Body Shop, and Lalalab.
My love for cosplay has continued to grow over the years, despite the challenges of moving to Germany, where I had the chance to participate in international events. Soon, with the establishment of my own workshop, I’ll have the capacity to create even more costumes, not only for myself but also for clients.
Encouraged by my husband, Lord Halgor, I’ve started creating blueprints to assist fellow cosplayers in bringing their designs to life and writing articles to inspire others.
Cosplay has been my passion for over a decade, and I’m eager to share my experiences with others. I believe that by coming together, we can not only enjoy our shared hobby but also learn from each other’s journeys.
Here are some interesting tidbits about me
I came into this world on April 12th, and my absolute favorite cuisine is sushi. Believe it or not, I’m still an avid Pokémon Go player, proudly representing Team Valor. One of my all-time cherished series is Firefly, and I’m a true Browncoat through and through.
As for my furry and scaly friends, I’ve had the pleasure of sharing my life with two cats, two turtles, and a multitude of fish. Life has its quirks, and I embrace them—like my ADHD, which can be both fascinating and challenging, occasionally giving me a hyperfocus boost, especially in the cosplay world.
Academically, I hold two degrees—one in national relationships and economics and another in Egyptian and History. I’m also a polyglot, fluent in three languages: Hungarian, English, and German.
Speaking of my cosplay journey, I have an unabashed love for acquiring materials, from textiles to patterns. The only downside? Finding proper storage solutions for all these treasures can be quite an adventure!
