Laura and Keely have been cosplaying together and separately for more than a decade. After taking a break to start their families, they have both enjoyed getting to share their hobby with their kids (and their kids' friends!) in recent years.
Keely Graesser is a graphic designer at Flying Dreams Designs and a homeschooling mom to three munchkins who loves incorporating sci-fi and fantasy into her lessons and using conventions as field trips. She is an active member of The Order of Gallifrey (Whovian costuming group), Heroic Inner Kids (costuming for charity), The Rebel Legion (Kessel Base), The Avengers Initiative (Central Avengers) and North Texas Cosplay. Her munchkins are also members of Order of Gallifrey and the Galactic Academy (Lothal school).
Laura Maisano is an editor for Anaiah Press, technical writer and young adult author at Rayha Studios who loves to share her creativity with her daughter. She will have a booth for her book, Schism, in the Artist Alley.
Keely and Laura are joined by Anna Hubbard of Yuna Elizabeth Cosplay for their Cosplaying with Kids panel.
