Femme Khan Films
As a huge fan of Star Trek, I created two fun viral videos to celebrate the 50th Anniversary as well as my favorite character - Khaaaaannnn!
Happy Borgday is a mashup of Katy Perry's Happy Birthday and the best scenes of Voyager's Seven of Nine. It was featured on Geek Exchange and also included an interview with me about winning "Best in Show" for the Official CBS Cosplay Contest at the Star Trek Convention in New York.
My second video is a sketch perfume add inspired by my Femme Khan cosplay and fellow cosplayer Shyaporn Theerakulstit. I had brought my Femme Khan Cosplay to NYCC in 2013 and was voted as "Absolute Best Cosplay of 2013" by i09, "#1 Best Genderswapped Cosplay from New York Comic Con" on Buzzfeed, was featured on the Mary Sue, GeekChicElite, and was "Best in Show" for the Official CBS Cosplay Contest.
I am super proud of my Femme Khan Costume as well as the many women who now cosplay as this traditionally male character. I love when fans take cosplay and bring it into their own individual world. I think that is when cosplay is at its most powerful. Regardless of your gender, culture, age, ethnic background, shape/size, you can be your favorite character! It is not only empowering for the cosplayer, but in turn, it opens the minds of producers, casting directors, illustrators, directors, and the audience to a whole new world of diverse possibilities for these beloved and iconic characters.
