About Me

 Hayley Elise is a Sydney-based cosplayer and writer who grew up making fantastical costumes for herself and never really stopped. She's been cosplaying since she first discovered the hobby in 2007, and since then has travelled to conventions across Australia and internationally to shoot and show off her costumes, often as a featured guest. This eventually led to a career writing about cosplay and pop culture for various magazines and online publications.

Hayley is an experienced host, with experience in panels, cosplay events and all things geeky. She's trained with numerous appearances on TV, radio, podcasts and the stage.

With three years training, and her costuming skills, Hayley creates visually stunning cosplay-themed pole dances, combining athleticism, grace and just a little comedy.
