I don’t know why, but I have a terrible time writing my bio. Right now I have two, depending on the situation- a “mommy blog” bio and one for my cosplay endeavors. I’ll post both here for a well-rounded introduction.
The Mommy Blog bio:
Candy Keane is a costumer, maker of geeky things, Army wife and mom to one energetic toddler named Keelan. She chronicles her first time mom adventures on her blog SewGeekMama.com.
She holds a journalism degree from University of Florida, where she met her husband Sean. Candy is internationally known for her cosplay and costume design, and more locally known for the Three Muses costume boutique she owned for many years before closing to concentrate on her personal projects and enjoy every moment of raising her son.
My “Look at all the stuff I’ve done” Cosplayer bio:
Candy Keane is a Florida cosplayer and costume designer that got her start making and wearing the infamous Slave Leia costume, which put her on the cover of Jedi Junkies, featured on the E! channel’s Top 25 Most Memorable Swimsuit Moments and in the Morgan Spurlock ComicCon documentary and book, where she also appears as Wonder Woman. She also made the costume worn by Kristen Bell in the movie Fanboys.
Candy won her first costume contest at the age of 5, and has been dressing up ever since. Her love of creating costumes led to a boutique and costume business that she ran for 11 years before closing in 2016 to concentrate on personal projects and raising her son. She plans on recapturing more of the fun aspects of costuming that got her started in the first place and is excited to embark on a new family focused cosplay venture while writing for her blog SewGeekMama.com and sharing her costume making expertise on her YouTube channel Sew Geek Mama.
