AvieDabber is a kid cosplayer from Halifax named Avalon. She is super excited to be the Geequinox Youth Ambassador because cosplay is for everyone, even the kids! She can't wait to meet all the children and teens who are interested in this great hobby and encourages anyone with questions to come talk to her (and maybe convince her mom to let her get instagram)! She started cosplaying in 2013 at age 9 when she took First place in the Hal-Con Costume Contest Junior Self Made Category with her very first cosplay, Legendary Stealth Elf from Skylanders. Since then she has competed in both Junior/Child and Adult Categories at Hal-Con, Spring Geequinox, Avalon Expo, and Sci Fi On the Rock, and her Batgirl of Burnside costume was featured in St. John's Superheroes. Avie says the BEST thing about cosplaying as a kid is how brave it has taught her to be when trying new things and meeting new people! After all, why be a cosplayer "when you grow up" when you can be one NOW?
