Erica Muse is best known for her acting and costuming. She began making costumes in 2005 and acting on stage in 2007. She feels these passions grew, in part, due to being bullied in school. “No one bullied me when I was out of school making costumes, modeling, acting, or performing, because we all had similar dreams!” Her first time on a production set was in 2008 as a tornado victim for the Red Cross Foundation movie 'F-5', followed by providing wardrobe for 'Wraith' in 2012. She began making guest appearances as a cosplayer in 2017, but after a realization in 2018, she turned her passions towards voice acting. She can now be heard in anime, video games, podcasts, web series, and other projects, and be spotted in several films, shows, music videos, and commercials. Companies she works with now include FUNimation, HBO, Hi-Rez, Well Go USA, and Sentai Filmworks, among others.
What started as a love for theater, stage crafting, and haunted house production soon turned full blown passion for costuming, SFX makeup and prop building. Since 2016 BFG Cosplay using those very skills has designed more than 70 costumes at a professional level. Being of a larger scale, BFG devoted himself to builds that not only included body diversity but could be made within reasonable budgets presenting an expert aesthetic.
Honing over a decade of skills in haunted houses and theater production allowed BFG to sharply develop larger, award-winning, more detailed builds and props with each new project.
Since 2018, BFG has appeared at multiple conventions or worked in production to influence, market, and ensure patrons have the best possible time at conventions/events. BFG also strives to promote body diversity and positivity to an ever-forming cosplay community.
