Here are short biographies of those who have indicated that they are standing for election at the time of this announcement.
Philip Gust -- President (CA). Philip enjoys sci-fi and fantasy costuming, and has particular interests in props, special effects, and prosthetic makeup. He also costumes in historical periods, and has a fatal attraction to difficult fabrics.
Aurora Celeste -- Vice President (PA). Aurora's costuming interests are all over, but her passion is reproducing costumes, mostly sci-fi and fantasy movies and tv shows, anime and manga, and Joseph Michael Linsner's Dawn character.
Jeanine Swick -- Treasurer (MA). Jeanine's work is "period inspired" rather than historically accurate, incorporating her own creativity. She costumed in high school for theater, and later for her own teens. She sells at regional renfaires, cons, SCA, and belly dance events
Tonya Adlofson -- Corresponding Secretary (ID). Tonya has done costumes for stage and screen as well as private collectors, charities, schools, and non-profit organizations. She is well-versed in everything from wigs to shoes to packable props.
Kathe Gust - Recording Secretary (CA). Kathe enjoys clothing for many historical periods, and various sci-fi and fantasy genre. She has been sewing since childhood, and began theatrical costuming for a university class.
