Zavage, also known as Zach (he/him), has been cosplaying for over a decade and is known in the community as a craftsmanship focused cosplayer. Zavage has fostered many lifelong friendships within the cosplay community, learning from others along his journey and teaching others where he can. Zavage has attended conventions from coast to coast, expanded his repertoire of crafting skills, and has competed and won in numerous cosplay contests. Zavage currently serves as the host of The Cosplay Crunch Podcast, an interview style cosplay talk show which shares cosplay and convention experiences from individuals around the country. Zavage continues to push himself to develop creatively and engage within the community which has truly shaped his life. He firmly supports that cosplay is for everyone, and does my best to represent the LGBTQIA+ community within cosplay and competitive costuming. @zavage_cosplay
