About Taylor Blais

Taylor Blais is a 21-year-old seamstress and propmaker from Brampton, Ontario with formal training from the Technical Production for the Performing Arts Industry Program at Sheridan College. She is also a Cosplayer and has been making costumes and props to wear at conventions such as Toronto Comicon and Fan Expo since 2016. She runs her own social media pages on TikTok and Instagram where she shares these creations and cosplays online with the community through short videos, photo shoots and work-in-progress photos.

With the costumes that she makes, Taylor also competes in craftsmanship cosplay competitions where she has been awarded Best in Show and for Advanced Craftsmanship. Cosplay and theatre inspire Taylor to keep trying new art forms and motivate her to continue to practice all kinds of skills related to the industries including, but not limited to: sewing, 3-D Printing and modelling, patterning, soldering, foam-smithing, wig styling, special effects makeup, vinyl cutting, woodworking, photography, embroidery, beading and painting as well as participating in photoshoots, YouTube videos and events for cosplay.

She also makes custom costumes, props and art for individuals in the cosplay community since 2017, with customers in the United States and Canada. Recently in her cosplay and sewing career, she has become more active in advocating to eliminate the fast fashion portion of the cosplay and theatre industry and hopes to be able to teach others these skills and encourage others to build their own cosplays as well.

Taylor is a member of the Summer Ensemble 2024 program. 


Since 2016, Taylor has had a passion for theatre. She began her involvement with theatre by operating follow spots, painting murals and stage managing her high school’s arts festivals.
