Every year, iMagicon tries to bring professionals in the cosplay community to our event to conduct panel discussions and workshops so attendees can learn new techniques and skills to advance their craft.
ERIC STEVENS, ByCats4Cats, (also known as Snap E Tiger) is a creator of animal mascot cosplay, commonly known as Fursuits. Eric became active in the fandom in 1999 and wore his first borrowed tiger fursuit in June 2000. After commissioning a fursuit for himself, he instantly dove into learning how to crafting his own cosplay for himself and later, friends. In 2009, ByCats4Cats.com was created to offer commissions of cat characters to others on a part-time basis. As commissions took off, Eric left his job at PayPal.com in 2012 to start a full-time career creating all species of fursuits.
Eric has been in numerous media over the years including “Animal Imitators” on TLC in 2003, “Weird, True and Freaky – Humanimals” on Animal Planet in 2008 as well as various news stories, magazine articles and video features.
