Cosplay of the Week

 

Word of the Nerd is pleased to present to you one of our newest regular features, Cosplay of the Week.  Each week we feature a new talented cosplayer from the cosplay community.  Be sure to check back every week to catch some up and coming new cosplay talent or get a look at some well established and already famous members from the world of cosplay.

 

Your neighborhood SHE-HULK who is also a professional makeup stylist, costume and prop designer, singer, rapper, dancer, performer, cosplayer, jewelry metal smith and all around strange cat.

 

How did you first get into cosplay?  My parents didn’t believe in buying store bought costumes, so my mom would always help my brother and I be whatever we wanted for Halloween, so I really have been costuming all my life! Later, I went to a performing arts high school and eventually became a makeup artist. So its really part of my life everyday.

How much time do you spend making your costumes?  Costumes are always evolving. I’ll usually spend at least two months before a new one is ready, but I’m always adding on to costumes, improving, #UPGRADES!

What’s your favorite cosplay you’ve done so far?  Nightcrawler, by far! Most of the characters I cosplay are either “badass” or “sexy” or usually a combo of both… but with Nightcrawler I can be a little of a goofball and its a whole lot of fun!

Do you usually get positive reactions from fans?  Indeed! I have to say I have some of the most supportive and vocal fans. I feel really connected to everybody and it feels so good to be able to share my “weird” with people who actually appreciate it. Its fulfilling in an extraordinary and unexplained way!

What’s the next costume or event you’re preparing for?  NYCC is the next big con I’ll be attending in October. I’ll be revamping my Dark Dazzler to prep her to join the eXiles group I cosplay in (Baltimore cosplay contest winners this year!!!)

What characters inspire you the most?  Dazzler, She Hulk, Nightcrawler…mostly the ones I cosplay
