"Christophe" Chris Tang is a convention favorite, known for his multi-talented accomplishments as a cosplayer, video game designer, and competitive gaming champion.
With over 40 awards in costume competitions and appearances in magazines and on TV, his creations are often empowered with lights, moving wings, transformations, and other fun action features! Highlights include "Hero Suit" Barnaby Brooks Jr. from Tiger & Bunny, Battlized SPD Red Power Ranger, Transforming Autobot Smokescreen WRX, Gundam Epyon, Sportacus, Captain Commando, and Battle Armor Cobra Commander. Chris enjoys using unorthodox techniques and resourcefulness to build something impressive out of the unexpected.
Success growing up as a competitive gamer won him many high-profile competitions including Nintendo and Sega World Championships – which helped him fulfill his dream of becoming a creator in the game industry. Contributing to top franchises such as "Street Fighter", "Marvel Vs. Capcom", "Transformers", and "Tetris", he's done everything from game design, game play implementation and story writing, to voice directing and voice acting. After serving as lead designer on a PS4 project for Sony, he continues his work as an indie game developer to create games and experiences that fans will love!
When not creating for the future, Chris keeps the spirit of the classics alive as the yearly announcer for the Tetris World Championships. He is featured in several gaming movies and film productions including "The Gamer Age", and the award-winning "Ecstasy of Order: The Tetris Masters". He can also be seen as a cosplayer on season 2 of HBO's hit TV series "Entourage", and on various "Tiger & Bunny" video releases.
In his spare time he enjoys building gadgets, hi-res gaming rigs, and modifying and building experimental game controllers. At Saboten Con, he excitedly looks forward to adding to his cuddly collection of cute plush cats, and hanging out with his fellow fans!
