About Me

My name is Tessa Schwass and I am a big fan of animals and cosplay. I am 22 years old and I just started cosplaying at the beginning of 2014. My first cosplay was Daenerys in her Qarth gown for Wizard World Portland 2014. Once I started, I got hooked. There's nothing like the atmosphere you get at comic and gaming conventions, they are like a summer camp for us. I adore connecting with people right off the bat from a cosplay and admiring others work.

Aside from cosplay I am a Senior at Portland State University studying Animal Biology. I work summers wrestling and playing with Lions, Tigers, and Bears (and much more) at a zoo in southern Oregon, hence where I get "Tiger Tessa".

I am very open to questions about myself, my cosplay, my work, or animals so please feel free to contact me through facebook.
