She has hints on it of Dagger from Cloak and Dagger, as well as Samus and Queenie (from Fantastic Beasts).

She indicated that the soon to be Toronto based artists plans  " to definitely come back for WVPop and TSU,  and possibly a couple others this fall if it's feasible. To kick things off  my official con appearances of 2017  I'll be judging the cosplay contest at Causeacon in Beckley WV this weekend! I'll also be debuting a new cosplay as well, so double yay! "

Causeacon is a nonprofit convention in which all of their proceeds will be donated
to the Women’s Resource Center. The con will be providing
entertainment panels as well as educational classes with topics including bullying,
body image, sexual violence and dating violence. It is our goal to create awareness
for this community and provide knowledge to help people avoid dangerous
situations, even before they happen as well as giving them the tools and assistance to get out of those situations. Teaching them to recognize different types of abuse and abusive behaviors.
