Mikal Mosley has a Bachelor’s Degree in Dramatic Arts from Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina, and after learning sewing, design, and construction in college, his passion for theater and self-expression combined into an unstoppable passion for costuming and cosplay.
Mosley is currently a designer and creator of both professional stagewear and cosplay costumes for private clients and celebrities, including various WWE Superstars, rappers, and NFL football players including WWE’s Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston, Big E, and Ember Moon, Ring of Honor’s Cody Rhodes, and NFL’s Mike Daniels (Green Bay Packers) and Adam Gettis (Tampa Bay Buccaneers).
In addition to creating more than 350 unique costumes from a variety of genres, he also designs and fabricates props for stage plays and television shows. He considers himself an expert at transforming everyday items into original accessories and has inspired many long-time cosplayers into getting started designing their own creations on a budget. Footage of his craft can even be seen in two televised specials – one which aired on WWE Network this spring (The New Day’s Fantastic Ride) and the second will premiere on ESPN this fall.
Aside from his talent in costume design, Mosley brings extensive experience as a professional presenter, host, and emcee. Mosley’s background in improvisational acting has provided him the gift for reading his audience, which allows him to consistently deliver a targeted and exciting message.
