Derek Nieman

Derek Nieman has been part of the south east convention scene for over 15 years. An original member of the Carolina Garrison of the 501st Legion, it goes almost without saying that Derek is a huge Star Wars fan and avid costumer. Not limited to just being a one trick fan boy, Derek also has a huge interest in costuming in other genres, which inspired him to join the cast of the Carolina Renaissance Festival in 2003. After competing in and winning costume contests across the Carolinas, Derek went on to manage costume contests at Charlotte area conventions. Derek's other interests include gaming, Harry Potter, Anime, Marvel, Game of Thrones, Batman, historic costuming, and Doctor Who.
