We are Darling and Sylar Santa Maria! We met in 2009 and have been cosplaying since. Over the last 15 years, we have made hundreds of cosplays, won competitions in masters, and judged internationally with accolades that include Crypton Media, Bioware Games, and Rockstar Games.

We have attended hundreds of conventions as guests, masters of ceremonies, and judges. It is an honor also to be official judges for World Cosplay Summit USA. 

Aicosu works as open-book cosplayers to help promote accessibility, ease, and fun in the community. We speak on cosplay for all with workshops on craft, budgeting, photography, posing, and marketing.
