Ibuki_Kitty

We are expanding our range of attractions this year and we’re excited to team up with Kitty Kaboom to help lead this initiative as our Creative Partnerships Manager at SCR! If you’re looking to be part of SoCal Regionals and have awesome ideas, please feel free to contact Kitty Kaboom at kittycontreras@gmail.com for more details.

“Kitty Kaboom has been a video game enthusiast since she first held a controller, and is a huge fan of old-school Capcom and SNK properties. Captivated and inspired by the characters she encountered, she made her cosplay debut at Comic-Con 2001 as Mai Shiranui. This led her not only to success as a fan favorite cosplayer but also towards a passionate career in modeling, acting, prop making, wire and stunt work; appearing at import racing events and in numerous martial art films. She also enjoys a love of drift racing, and could often be found dumping quarters into the Initial D arcade machines.

Over the years, Kitty has frequently been seen many times on G4TV, she has been featured in PlayStation magazine, Animerica, Over Rev, and Option 2 Import magazine, has appeared in leading roles in such projects as “Action Angels”, “Everyone’s Kung Fu Fighting: Reloaded”and “Everyone’s Kung Fu Fighting Again” as well as pioneered her own events as the co-founder and creator of Jurassic Con in 2012. Throughout her continuing adventures, she has made and met many fans and friends, won several Cosplay contest and Masquerade awards (such as Best presentation, Best performance, and multiple 1st Place awards), and even met some of her role models – including a very special encounter with Yuji Shiozaki, author / creator of one of her all-time favorite mangas, Ikkitousen, who was so impressed with her cosplay that he even immortalized their meeting in the pages of his work.

Continuing to pursue her dreams, she has now begun embracing the fighting game community in between advancing her cosplay, training, and film projects.”
