Mica Burton Bio, Age
Michaela Jean Estelle aka Mica Burton was born on July 8, 1994, in Los Angeles California. She graduated in 2016 from the University of Michigan School of Theatre and Dance in Ann Arbor, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) in Theatre.
Being born into a Star Trek family, it wasn’t surprising when she chose a rather similar path. The interest in and inspiration for her current career – cosplaying – were not far-fetched. Cosplay (costume play) is a hobby where people (cosplayers) dress up as their favourite or a specific anime, video game or comic book characters. She started cosplaying and going to conventions as a kid.
Mica was her daddy’s girl and still is. While she bonded with him, video games became the perfect pastime for their attachment which also prepared her for the future. She received her first costume as a child and wore it every day while she watched her then-favourite TV show, Sailor Moon. She was just being a typical child doing what she loves and finds happiness in, however, the lines began to fall into place when she attended her first cosplay convention while in junior high.
Mica found a platform to express herself creatively and felt like she belonged for the first time. Being interested in the arts, she garnered some skills (sewing and makeup) that have proved helpful in the long run. She had often felt like an outsider while growing up and has even had some of the black kids call her Oreo because she was attracted to the nerd culture.
How it All Started?
This special nerd was a fan of a YouTube gaming channel, Rooster Teeth since childhood and would have a chance meeting with one of her favourite members of the company. She was with her family in a restaurant in Los Angeles when she saw him. Then daddy helped his girl to work up some courage and walk into her future. Mica met the said member and greeted hello after which they kept in touch. And that was it.
The company had a convention and Mica was there. Not long after, she became a cast member and appeared in their feature film. Following her high school graduation, she was offered a full-time position and is currently one of the content creators and on-air talent. Today, talk about cosplay models and Mica Burton would surely make the list.
She lives in Austin, Texas.
