Rachel Petersen (nee Grey) of RayGreyCosplay is a Canadian Cosplayer/Artist and local cosplayer based out of Windsor.
Rachel began cosplaying in 2013 when she went to Fan Expo for the first time. She has been cosplaying for 5 years now and has become proficient in sewing and armor construction, modeling, body painting and sharing her knowledge with the community.
Over the years Rachel has run/judged several local cosplay competitions, has completed about 20 cosplay costumes, has hosted craft classes.
Before cosplay she was just a comic book nerd and worked for the local theater companies helping make costumes and run the wardrobe backstage at the shows. She now works at Pop Hair gallery and cosplays in her off time.
Fun fact: The name RayGreyCosplay comes from a comic book character with her name: Rachel Grey/Summers, Jean Grey’s daughter. That was her first ever cosplay and what ultimately, what inspired her to become a super hero. She plans to further her craft by sharing her love of cosplay and art with the world!
