About You:

You want a career in a fast-paced growing company that is part of costuming and cosplay’s core. You want a job that combines your love of geek and cosplay culture with your passion for customer service.  Whether you’re connecting with people through email, or face to face at an event, helping people find the right wig or product for their project makes you giddy. Your passion can be felt in your written communications.

You are an amazing communicator, both in written and spoken form, and you are easy to follow. You can describe situations, problems, and solutions quickly and accurately. You are a quick learner and creative problem solver.  Your passion and creativity is matched only by your relentless attention to detail. You are a completionist for follow-through on tasks and projects. You can’t leave things unfinished - it drives you crazy. Organization is your middle name. You make sure that all the t’s are crossed and all i’s are dotted. Work is more than just a job to you.  You like working in dynamic jobs and the words “It’s not in my job description” are not in your vocabulary.
