Jedimanda wanted to live in a world filled with Star Wars, passionate fans, and the power to make ANYTHING SHE SEES! Of course, leading her to dive headfirst into the cosplay world.
As a professional seamstress and avid costume maker with more than 6 years of experience, she has competed, and ultimately won, several costume competitions, as well as judged almost an equal amount. She has been featured in Star Wars Insider and Cosplay Culture Magazine. As well as on several sites such as StarWars.com, D23 (Disney fan club), Kotaku, Nerdist, Marvel.com and SyFy. Jedimanda is an epic seamstress with the cuts, scars, and glue gun burns to prove it. She puts a lot of time into her cosplay competing. Traveling all across the US for competitions and hoping to go internationally for competitions soon.
She tries to divide her time between her love of costume making, oil painting, and building her SFX makeup portfolio! She has a BFA from the University of Louisville in Fine Art Painting. She split most of her college and early post-college time between working in theatre makeup and costume shop duties. Focusing on makeup and costuming, Amanda takes the full role as an artist to the heart.
When she’s not sewing or drawing her eyeballs out, she is a professional graphic designer and a professional wig maker and works for Custom Wig Company.
Make sure to follow her on all her social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Twitch, and Youtube.
