Laree Starke has enjoyed cosplay for many years in her life but one of her true passions is bringing people together. She always had a knack for bringing people together and forming true friendships that may have not otherwise developed in this hugely divided world.  

About Me:

When I was younger I was very shy but dressing up into characters for Halloween was my time to shine and later in life as an adult I learned about cosplay. It ended up being an eye opening experience that people can wear costume outside of Halloween!

When I learned more about cons and decided to attend Dragon Con it was the most memorable experience of cosplay I ever had so when the pandemic impacted the world everything was cancelled I decided to turn lemon into lemonade. I needed my cosplay fix...!

I reached out to a cosplayer that I befriended at Dragon Con a year prior and asked "Would you like to Cosplay on the beltline?" He was completely down to do it and said yes! So I posted about it and a random person that we never met reached out and asked if they can join! We said that would be dope so we had our amazing photographer friend join us and we got to the Beltline and took some amazing pictures! 

We said we should do this more often and each time we had more and more people catch us on the Beltline!

Laree's Hobbies:

Laree loves her electric longboard and you can sometimes catch her zipping down the beltline with her cat ear motorcycle helmet. She also is an artist as she paints and crafts jewelry as well!

When is comes to video games she is a PlayStation girl but eventually wants to get into PC gaming.
