Riki ‘Riddle’ Lecotey – Cosplayer
Riki Lecotey (known as Riddle), who transplanted from her igloo in Canada and moved to the United States, has been involved in costuming for over 15 years. She is internationally recognized in the cosplay community for her ability to translate costumes and focus on craftsmanship. She’s been invited to conventions around the world, to judge costume contests, host workshops, and promote confidence in cosplay through craftsmanship. She has been interviewed by Playboy, NPR, The Washington Post, and has been featured on the cover of two of the most well-known cosplay magazines in the word, Cosplay Culture and Cohaku. All the skills she has learned through cosplay have also earned her the opportunity to work on a few Superhero films during that time.
She was a main cast member on both seasons of Heroes of Cosplay, winning the most awards during her time there, and Riki also has appeared in two award winning documentaries, 4 days at Dragoncon & Cosplay: Crafting a Secret Identity.
Also an avid cook, Riki is the creator of Cosplay for a Cause, whose first project was a cosplay calendar that raised more than $30,000 with 100% of the proceeds donated to the Japanese Red Cross tsunami disaster relief. Her favorite act of charity, however, is rescuing and rehabilitating baby squirrels.
