Holly Conrad is an American costume designer and cosplay artist. She is known for her playthroughs of Dungeons & Dragons.

Early life[edit]

Conrad created costumes for shops such as Disney and Dreamworks early on. She became known for cosplaying as Commander Shepard from the Mass Effect series, later getting her nickname Commander Holly, from this character.


Conrad was featured in the 2011 documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope by Morgan Spurlock, where she entered the San Diego Comic-Con International's cosplay competition.[1]

Dice, Camera, Action![edit]

As part of this D&D playthrough, Conrad played Strix, a sorceror.[2][3] She was featured in the Twitch livestreaming series alongside Dungeon Master Chris Perkins, Jared Knabenbauer, Anna Prosser Robinson, and NateWantsToBattle.[4][5]

In September 2018, Beamdog announced that the cast of Dice, Camera, Action would voice characters in the Baldur's Gate series remasters.[6][7]

Personal life[edit]

Conrad married Ross O'Donovan in September 2012 and resided in Glendale, California. The couple announced an amicable divorce in September 2018 due to Conrad moving to Seattle.[8] Afterwards, Conrad opened a clothing store called Trash Witch Coven.[9]


In May 2019, Conrad was involved in a controversy surrounding fellow D&D player Jared Knabenbauer. Conrad was accused by Knabenbauer's wife Heidi O'Ferrall of having an affair with Knabenbauer while Knabenbauer and O'Ferrall were still married.[10] Conrad later responded by denying the allegations and announcing a temporary departure from social media.[11]

As a result of the allegations, the D&D Live 2019 event replaced Conrad and Knabenbauer with Alex Lee and Kelly D'Angelo.[12]

On May 20, 2019, Conrad posted a Twitter thread appearing to confirm Knabenbauer's version of events after he stated three days earlier that he and O'Ferrall were in an open polyamorous relationship (which O'Ferrall confirmed did happen, but was terminated when O'Ferrall thought Knabenbauer wasn't being transparent with his relationship with Conrad). She alleged O'Ferrall encouraged Knabenauer to explore his feelings for Conrad, but expected nothing to happen due to Conrad having expressed asexuality. Conrad further alleged that when the feelings were returned, O'Ferrall became abusive and threatened to ruin their D&D career, allegations O'Ferrall denied.[13]
