Chris “Papa Bear” English began his journey into the wild world of cosplay with a small local con in 2012 and has been hooked ever since. Fueled by the positive vibes of the community and a love for the craft Chris has definitely expanded his knowledge of costume creation/ prop making as well as attending more conventions.
Part of his continued costume efforts is being involved in the community and attending various costumed events as a member of Cosawesome Studios a Indiana based cosplay group, and attending various charitable events as a member of Costumers With A Cause.
Papa Bear has gone on to be a guest at various conventions, compete in multiple cosplay events, won multiple awards and has no plans on slowing down. You can follow his adventures on his facebook page papabear and instagram @papabearcosplay
