Cowbutt Crunchies is a married cosplay couple who specializes in complex couture cosplay and original pop culture-based designs. Long time members of the community who are always pushing the envelope of cosplay, they are passionate craftspeople who utilize a wide range of techniques to create costumes that are both intricately detailed and impossibly over the top. Their ever-growing skillset includes advanced needlework, extreme wigwork, detailed armor, makeup effects, moldmaking, lighting, and animatronics.

Their passion for cosplay has taken them around the world, judging and hosting guest workshops in several countries. Regan enjoys competing herself, and in 2019 was crowned the Global Champion of Cosplay at the Crown Championships of Cosplay world finals. You can also occasionally find them on prime time television and online featurettes, including ABC's "To Tell the Truth" and Adam Savage's "Tested." They have also worked alongside a number of companies to bring their characters to life through the art of cosplay, including Riot Games (League of Legends) and miHoYo (Genshin Impact).

They are the authors of two cosplay books - The Art of Extreme Wig Styling (2020) and Fabulous Cosplay Footwear (2021) - with a third (The Cosplayer's Book of Ball Gowns) on the way in 2022.

With two decades of experience, their focus is on is learning and creativity, encouraging other cosplayers through cosplay education. They strongly believe in giving back to the community through workshops and tutorials, as well as through their cosplay charity Patreon.
