Broken Canon Cosplay is Christopher Chamberlin, a costume/prop-maker & charity cosplayer living in Manhattan, Kansas. He patterns & sews costumes, modifies and 3D models, 3D prints, and paints armor & accessories, does makeup & latex work and is getting into casting silicone. He does buy components for his costume builds or an entire costume at times, but what he loves most is to use cosplay to create moments of real and spontaneous joy for others.


Chris also loves cosplaying for charitable causes and has been a member of the Just-Us League for a couple of years. He is also seeking official membership in the Mandalorian Mercs, a Star Wars costume club specifically for Mandalorians, once he repaints his armor.  Both groups are 501c3 charity organizations that use cosplay to entertain and fundraise for charities that support sick & terminally ill children, families struggling with mental health issues and disability, those who have lost loved ones to suicide, special needs populations, and those who can’t make ends meet.

If you’re moved by his charity cosplaying mission, you can also join his Patreon support team.
