Brittani Ginoza is a cosplayer and prop maker from Columbus, Ohio. She is well known for her eye-catching painting style and detailed costume construction. Brittani loves to compete and has even represented the United States twice in International cosplay competitions. When Brittani is not constructing big armor builds she is always up for talking shop with other cosplayers. For her, the best thing about cosplay is having fun, being with friends, and learning new skills with every project.
