Closet Champion's creator, Kate Nyx was introduced to independent wrestling in 2008, at the Squared Circle Revue in Detroit, MI, and was hypnotized by the dazzling and daring feats of lucha libre.
"Is this what wrestling is?", she recalls thinking, "because I would watch the **** out of that."
Kate has been making costumes since she was in elementary school, and has been sewing professionally since she was 13. Besides her several independent clients, she has worked for the American Music Theatre and the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, as well as providing costumes for underground vaudeville and cabaret productions.
It didn't take long after seeing her first Chikara Pro show in 2012 that she started contemplating making wrestling gear. In 2013, she made her first full set of lucha gear and hasn't looked back since. She is now one of the primary gear makers for Chikara Pro.
