Missoula's Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention

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

Kelsey Rocheleau (Small Maus)

MisCon 38 Panel Volunteer

Kelsey, aka Small Maus, has been casually cosplaying since 2014. Maus was taught how to sew at the age of 5 by making cat toys with her grandmother. She loves to learn new crafts and hobbies, which has brought her to learn leather work, upholstery, and now her job at Kerr's Drapery shop. If she is not sewing she can be found hiking with her pup, Woola, or trying her best to playing computer games with her husband. Maus looks forward to meeting many new people at Miscon this year!
