16 years ago Briana Lawrence (Brichibi Cosplays) and Jessica Walsh (SnowCosplays) were two fanfiction writing ladies who geeked out over Gundam Wing boys and Resident Evil. Now? They’re still geeks and still have their fandoms, but they’re also a cosplaying couple who write books, discuss the importance of representation, and do their best to keep their three butt-head cats in line. Snow is the seamstress of the couple, her work being featured in local fashion shows that combine the world of fashion with the geek scene, meanwhile, Brichibi talks about issues in the cosplay community and how the most important thing about cosplay is to love yourself, respect others, and have fun.

When it comes to writing, both ladies write freelance for WatchMojo.com, so chances are, that anime or video game top ten vid you listened to was penned by one of them. Brichibi has also written for “The Root” “SyFy Wire” “Black Girl Nerds” and “Uncanny Magazine” while Snow has had pieces in “Cosplay Culture” and “Apex Magazine.” Brichibi also recently released a black, queer, magical girl series called “magnifiqueNOIR” while Snow is determined to scare the living daylights out of readers with her new horror anthology “Little Creepers.” Along with their solo projects, the two are working on the third book in their “Hunters” urban fantasy series.

When going to conventions they always bring their best so that they can promote their work. You can get lost in their books, or heck, you can come by for a hug and fun conversations about cosplay, anime, or video games. Always promoting positivity and always supporting one another, Brichibi and Snow are smiling their way through the geek scene.
