Yaya Han
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
Yaya Han is a costume designer, model and cosplay entertainer with over a decade of experience. After discovering cosplay at Anime Expo in 1999, she quickly absorbed the heart and soul of costume design and creation. To this day Yaya has made close to 300 costumes in the genres of anime/manga, comic books, video games, sci-fi and her own original designs.
Over the years, Yaya has build a successful business in the cosplay community, creating a popular cosplay accessories line that is available online and at conventions, as well as her line of Yaya Han Brand merchandising. Her intricate and lavish creations have won awards and acclaim nationwide, and she has been invited to appear as a Guest, Panelist, Judge, Performer and Host to over 100 conventions and other events all over the world. Yaya's impact on the world of cosplay has been so great that she has been a Guest Judge on 2 seasons of TBS TV Network's "King of the Nerds" competition show, featured in a documentary about cosplay called "Cosplay - Crafting a Secret Identity", as well as is starring in the Syfy (Space) TV Network Docu-Series "Heroes of Cosplay".
But, no matter where Cosplay has taken her professionally, Yaya strives to stay true to what got her into this field originally - fun and creativity.
Through hard work, unmatched passion and infectious enthusiasm, Yaya has helped Cosplay gain respect and integrity as an artform in the fandom world and art communities, and her decade long campaign for creativity has helped raise Cosplay to the standards we know today. Everyday, Yaya continues to pave the path for the beloved art and lifestyle we know as Costume Play.

Hi, Yaya. I don't know if you will ever see this, but I just wanted to say thank you. I bought tickets to AX as a gift for my little sister, but we only ended up going for a couple hours the whole event. During those couple hours, however, she found your booth and waited in line to get a picture with you. You called her "so sweet." Your kindness was much appreciated, and it made the entire event for her to see you. It made the entire event for me to see her so happy. She just graduated from high school and she doesn't know what she wants to do yet, but she really likes to design and make costumes. She really admires you, so thank you so much for your kindness!

I've commented on your beautiful and talented cosplay skills before, but I just have to say that I saw your purple hair on t.v. the other day and it looks beautiful!

A little bit random, but I had to mention how gorgeous the purple hair looked and how well it suited you. ^_^
