Professional Cosplayer & Artist. Twitch Streamer. Magic Maker!
Phoenix local AmberSkies is no stranger to the world of creation and overall nerd-dom! She has been involved in the creative arts and enthralled in the world of anime, pop culture, and gaming since she was just 8 years old. Pokemon and Sailor Moon came blasting into her life and paved the way for a lifetime of artistry. In the years since, she has harnessed the power of the fandoms she loves-- and has built up her nerdy empire and transcended to the professional cosplay stage!
Amber has taken on increasingly elaborate and complex costuming builds, proudly working hand in hand with amazing companies via material sponsorships with Plaid Crafts, and costuming work with Marvel Studios, Fox Entertainment, and the Walt Disney Company.
She uses her self taught arsenal of creative skills to transform herself oftentimes from scraps and recycled goods into fantastic heroes and beasts across all fandoms-- specializing in detailed prosthetic/makeup work, elaborate paint jobs, and Armor/Prop Building.
In her last 10 years on the circuit, she has professionally competed with her cosplays and won First Place or Best in Show at Disney's D23 Expo, San Diego Comicon International, Phoenix Fan Fusion, Amazing Arizona Comicon, Long Beach Comic Expo, and more. She now spends her convention days as an experienced cosplay judge, cosplay guest, craft panelist, and MC for various creative endeavors at shows throughout Arizona and along the West Coast. She also loves working her Artist Alley and vendor Booth as a professional artist (AmberSkies Creations) showcasing her many fan art inspired prints and unique merch.
Amber Continues to grow her online presence through taking to the streaming platform Twitch, and pursuing the route of gaming and live entertainment via bodypainting, FX makeup, and loads of fun with her online community at AmberSkiesTV. She loves crushing hugs, lives for building others up, and spreading cosplay positivity for all-- leaving a sprinkle of sunshine wherever she wanders!
