Johnny, aka Junkers Cosplay, is a Navy veteran, currently working full-time as an engineer, and is a cosplayer who creates costumes as a hobby for both fun and profit. Starting his cosplay career in 2011 with few tools and resources, he was given the chance to work with a team to create a promotional piece for Bioware’s Mass Effect 2. From there, he worked professionally as a prop maker and model while attending college.Johnny has made pieces in collaboration with Riot Games, Rooster Teeth, and KOG Studios, as well as working closely with Crunchyroll.com as a Cosplay Ambassador, creating promotional pieces, and promoting their simulcast anime.
Johnny has been featured prominently as the winner of MYX TV’s first season of “Call to Cosplay”, as well as returning in the second and third seasons as a judge. He does not expect fame or fortune from cosplay, but derives enjoyment in sharing his trade and demonstrating how to make props and armor, so that other cosplayers can share the same joy.
