Missoula's Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention

MisCon 38: the Dark Forest, May 24 - 27, 2024 Missoula, Montana

Desirée Greystone

MisCon 38 Panel Volunteer

Desiree's first con was MisCon25 (Silver). She won best of theme for her Silver Steam Punk Outfit, and 3rd place overall...And she was hooked. For MisCon 30 (From the Ashes), she ditched the costume she was making at the last minute to come up with a transformation dress, where she again placed third with her themed costume. At MisCon 36, Carnival of Wonders, Desiree took the Master's Award with her carnival tent dress, including stilts and tiny performers under the big top.
During WorldCon Sasquan, Desiree received an Judge's Award for her Octopus dress, including a wig design featuring Captain Nemo's Nautilus being taken down by a giant octopus.
She is thrilled to be judging the costume contest for the second year at MisCon.
When she is not working on costumes for Cons, she creates costumes for her local theatre. And, oh yeah…she makes her living as an art teacher at two elementary schools in Pullman, WA.
You can follow her on Instagram as she works toward opening an art gallery and art supply store in Pullman. Instagram.com/Greystonegrandgallery
