Janet S. Planets is a local burlesquer with Nerdvana and cosplayer. Originally hailing from Memphis, she cut her teeth as a creature of the night with Freakengine Improv before moving on to help revive the local Rocky Horror Picture Show shadow cast, Absent Friends, in 2010. Janet started taking her clothes off for laughter and money (aka doing burlesque) in 2011 and has not stopped doing it since then. Sometime in the middle of all that, she also started applying her theatrical and performance expertise to cosplay. While on the con circuit, Janet often leads panels on budget-friendly cosplay and body confidence but will not hesitate to talk at length about pretty much anything if you ask her to.
