Professor Cornelius Thriftium / (aka Thirl Hupp)

When it comes to costuming and cosplay, there are very few people who can hold a candle to the astounding Professor Thriftium.

Most of his creations come from repurposed items, many of which are found in local Thrift Stores. That’s right. Thrift stores. When you see his cosplay work, you would imagine he has a team of Seamsters working ’round the clock, but in fact he does the work himself, with materials he gathers on his days off from making people’s lives wonderful at The Magic Kingdom.

Have a look at some of this man’s incredible work, and prepare to be amazed, and enlightened, as he becomes our first officially announced Competition Judge for Aethertopia!
