Christina McDaniel in a red dress with short blonde hair

Christina McDaniel

I am Christina McDaniel, an avid cosplayer and social media influencer in Houston. My love for anime and comics lead me to start cosplaying in 2011. Shortly afterwards, I established a group named Cosplay Vogue Houston to help network local cosplayers and photographers. One of the goals of CVH was to create a positive safe space for newbie cosplayers to grow. You can be a part of it too! I’ll be at my booth selling prints, shirts, and gaming mats for anyone who wants to take something home. Otherwise, just stop by for selfies, advice, or just a good nerdy discussion! I’ll also be filming short clips for my vlog covering my experience as well as fun TikTok videos and I’d love for you to be part of it! Come see me at my booth at Fandemic Tour Houston, and don’t forget to ask me about CVH!
