Elle has been creating costumes for over 25 years. Her areas of interest include sewing, embroidery, textile arts, makeup, and creative technology. 

When she is not designing costumes and attending conventions, she runs an environmental nonprofit organization in North Florida that studies sea-level rise, water quality, and estuarine habitats. 

Fred has been a painter for decades, first starting his career in figuring painting and transitioning to full-time prop-making and fabrication in 2010. 

His areas of interest include foamwork, painting, airbrushing, casting, and sculpting.
