Anna Faith, look alike and rising cosplay star.

The cosplay of Anna Faith

While Anna Faith has been performing (and modelling) since she was in the second grade, it was her portrayal of the Disney character Elsa that really drew the attention of the public eye as she looked identical to the animated character.
Since then Anna Faith has gone on to continue drawing attention, (with her cosplay work) with various cosplays, but most notably her portrayal of the DC Comics character Harley Quinn, using the costume (as worn by Margot Robbie) from the movie ‘Suicide Squad”.

Faith’s resemblance to Robbie’s character was so close that the picture of Faith (in her Harley Quinn costume) below really is Anna Faith and not Margot Robbie, as some would believe.

Her likenesses to characters has drawn a massive social media following in a relatively short time and has also helped Anna Faith be named ‘One of The Top Sexiest Cosplayers’, and even has entire Sub-Reddits dedicated to her.

Currently Anna Faith continues to make cosplay appearances and acting appearances and has stated that she hopes to record a music album in the future.

Pencil art, work in progress.

A pencil image I drew (for fun) with a light marker highlight.
Not sure if I'm going to ink or colour it yet.

Cosplay from Russian student Standesu

The cosplay of Standesu

Hailing from Russia is cosplayer Standesu, while new in comparison to other more established artists she has already begun to gain widespread notice; particularly her Prison School: Meiko Shiraki cosplay which lit up Reddit and 9GaG when the images were uploaded by the photographer (Michael W Photo) and fans.

Although the Russian student is no stranger to giving her cosplays a sexy look Standesu has yet to fully establish herself on social media, which (given her studies) is not too surprising.

While her existing social media is light on details, Standesu has so far produced many quality cosplays and shows a sense of humour in what she has produced on social media so far.

Her Instagram account is under the name ‘A is for Average’ and her responses to comments of pictures show a light-hearted approach.
Whether or not Standesu chooses to develop her cosplay as other established cosplayers have done or just keeps it as a fun pastime her work so far is being enjoyed by fans all over the world.

A gritty take on Nancy Drew in new comic series.

Nancy Drew goes noir in latest comic series

Through numerous articles I have featured the work of comic book writing team Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery, the team who first established themselves with their brilliant Kill Shakespeare series.

Since the end of the original Kill Shakespeare series they have stayed busy with several different projects, most notably the recent Assassins Creed mini-series.

Now the team is back tackling different titles at the same time.
While Conor McCreery returns to the Kill Shakespeare universe with the new Juliet feature, Anthony Del Col moves on to put a new spin on the classic character Nancy Drew in a current series which includes the Hardy Boys.

Traditionally these characters were clean cut, good two-shoe types who helped the local police solve mysteries in a wholesome family manner. That image is gone in the current Del Col handling of the characters.

Not only has Del Col brought the characters into the modern age he’s made them believable with realistic personalities and their own various flaws. The characters aren’t afraid to do some hacking, break into police stations and cruisers; they argue, disagree, get into fights and deal with the seedier side of life.
Something that, traditionally, the characters didn’t do.

Del Col’s reboot of the characters doesn’t end there, gone is the clean, polished ‘All-American Golden Age’ look that was previously associated with the characters.
The new series has a moodier, gritty look brought to life by artist Werther Dell ‘Edera.
Dell’ Edera’s new look works with how Del Col has written the characters and the heavy use of the character’s thoughts, through narration, ties the look and new character approach together making it feel believable.

The comics themselves flow evenly in the pacing moving from panel to panel with an uncluttered, although sometimes overly inked, look that makes the story easy to follow and credible.
