The cosplay of AZ Powergirl

Cara Nicole aka AZ Powergirl

 What if I introduced you to a girl who is a writer, editor, comic book colourist, cosplayer and one time political candidate.
If it sounds like something that I made up than meet Cara Nicole.

Originally suiting up for charity events Cara Nicole began appearing in costume at conventions and other events, although she does admit that at first she didn’t even know that what she was doing was known as cosplay.
 While originally becoming known for her portrayal of Powergirl, Cara Nicole branched out and portrayed other characters such as Pyslocke, Electra, Black Cat and a variety of other well-known Marvel characters.

Outside of her cosplay work Cara Nicole also writes, edits and does colour work for 183 Degree Studios, which she helped co-found.
Cara Nicole also ran for a seat in House of Representatives in the recent US election. But don’t go thinking that it was all some publicity stunt, as some known people treat running for positions of office, but a genuine attempt to seek an elected position. This was evidenced by her responses to questions about important issues.

When not occupied with these other things Cara Nicole maintains a busy convention appearance schedule, the details of where and what events is all listed through her social media and official website.

You can follow Cara Nicole (AZ Powergirl) on Facebook and Twitter, or follow her latest  appearances and announcements through her  Official Website.

You can also purchase prints from her Storenvy.

Meg Turney, cosplayer and internet personality.

The cosplay of Internet personality Meg Turney.

Once named one of the ’25 Hottest YouTubers’ by Playboy magazine, and listed as one of the 100 Sexiest Women Alive by FHM Magazine, is cosplayer Meg Turney.

The 29-year-old Texan is no stranger to fan and media attention that she draws from her cosplay, as Meg Turney is also known for her time hosting various web shows. Shows such as the award winning (CraveOnLine) show TechKnow, and RoosterTeeth’s The Know; as well as her own personal YouTube and Twitch channels; and appearances on a variety of shows have put Turney in the public eye.

Her personality (plus genuine love of gamer/geek culture) goes beyond her on-air appearances and carries over into her cosplay work, bringing an added dimension to the characters she portrays; from a wide range of genres.

While Turney does pay attention to detail and accuracy in her cosplays, she also has fun with it; playing with some of the characters to give them a personal spin, while keeping the look recognizable and having fun in her photoshoots; which are done by professional photographers.

While sharing the images (from photoshoots and appearances) Turney keeps fans up to date on her work through various social media, where she frequently interacts with fans through responses to comments and posts; as well as posting videos and pictures of herself having fun.
This adds a depth to her overall public personality and helps fans feel a connection to Turney and her work.

You can follow Meg Turney on Facebook, Twitter, as well as buy her calendrers or prints through her StoreEnvy; or watch her online via her YouTube and Twitch channels.

The work of Elisanth - Alternative model

 The dark and beautiful cosplay of Elisanth.

Lets start the New Year off by taking a look at the cosplay work of the lovely alternative model Elisanth.

While mainly recognized as a very talented model, Elisanth enjoys portraying characters from various movies and video games.
Particularly the ones with darker images, which Elisanth says (through her media) is an art style which she is very fond of.

Although her primary work is in modelling, (having graced the covers of numerous magazines) Elisanths work in cosplay is very impressive. Her details to costume, make up, posing, backgrounds, and use of professional photography, make for cosplay images that are as impressive to look at as she is.

Despite her impressive resume and wide (professional) portfolio, Elisanth does not distance herself from her fans. Throughout her array of social media she responds frequently to comments and is very gracious with compliments that fans pay her. In fact she recently advertised (through her DeviantArt page - LINK) that she would autograph her 2017 calendars for fans who sent them to her.
Those calendars sold out very quickly, so if you weren’t fortunate enough to have already ordered one you will have to hope for another printing or wait until next year when Elisanth’s 2018 calendars are released.

You can follow Elisnath through her Facebook Page, Official Website or order products through her Online Storenvy.
