Philip Odango is a Filipino American theatre producer, author and costume crafter. Born in the Philippines and raised in the United States, he has spent the last decade directing and producing over two dozen theatrical productions, and is known for his award-winning costume design work as Canvas Cosplay.

His cosplay of Maui from Disney’s Moana is recognized by Disney’s head of animation as “The real Maui.” His costumes have officially been featured by Marvel, Disney, Cosplay Culture Magazine, SyFy Channel, The New York Times, Good Morning America and more.

Philip is known for his meticulous scrutiny as a masters-level costume craftsmanship judge who will inspect garments and armor outside and inside for clean execution, and he recently judged the Crown Championships of Cosplay in Chicago alongside colleagues Riddle, Yaya Han and Marvel Head of Visual Development Ryan Meinerding.

He is thrilled to be invited back to judge The CAGE and as a guest at AsiaPOP Comicon Manila with Singer® Philippines.
