Meredith Placko


Genres: Cosplay, Entertainment

Meredith Placko is a 15+ year cosplay veteran, having started back in the Dark Ages of Cosplay in 1999. She's made over 200 costumes to date, and holds a degree in Fashion Design and Marketing. While she never chose to pursue a career in costume making, she enjoys putting her skills to use for herself and her friends.

When she's not playing dress up, you can catch Meredith on the digital airwaves hosting the Marvel Movie News show on Popcorn Talk Network, and appearing as co-host on a slew of other programs. Her passion for journalism, which she has been doing just as long as cosplay, has given her an immense background in giving talks about Pop Culture in the Media and what it means to be a modern day geek. Her work throughout the years as a producer in local and national television has been recognized by the Associated Press and The National Academy of Television Arts - but being able to apply those hard earned traditional journalism skills in the world of new media has earned Meredith recognition from both the old guard and the new. 
You can catch Meredith at Big Wow at her booth or visit one of the many panels she'll be hosting on costuming and the media!
