Karielle says, she's not too experienced with cosplaying, but she has been doing it for a year now. She has mainly done Hermione, Belle, and (recently) Black Canary. She will be branching out into new stuff this year, but Hermione and Belle are her prime ones. She's a loving mother. She's been a circus clown back in high school. She has also worked for haunted houses and dabbled a little in zombie makeup. She was also a part of the Wizard of Oz musical in high school (poppy, tornado, Lion's manicurist, citizen of Oz, and stage crew).
You may most commonly recognize her from a BuzzFeed article where they deemed her "Emma Watson's doppelganger" and the rest of the internet agreed!
Take a look for yourself!
