Constantine is a writer and cosplayer based in Los Angeles, CA. A graduate of Boston University and former participant in the JET Program. In just a few short months she has garnered thousands of Facebook fans, online recognition and started a World War II poster series. With over 10 years of cosplay experience it is freaky to know she is just now only scratching the surface of her potential. In addition, she run her own Con Coverage and is involved with her own Cosplay website Takopop!
The trick to great cosplay is to have great shoots and if anyone knows about creating a good photoshoot, it’s Meagan. Now Meagan resides in Silicon Valley just south of San Francisco, where she is the acting Community & Communication Manager for Crystal Dynamics and is working on the next Tomb Raider installment. When she isn’t at the office chances are you’ll find Meagan playing games, reading comics, or working feverishly on new costume for an upcoming convention. She has been killing the scene for some time now and her love of cosplay shines through over the past half decade.
Tachibana is one of my favorite cosplayers for the sole reason is fame is never a goal. After sitting down and chatting I learned ‘And if you don’t have the physical attributes for it, then it’s probably going to be much harder to make yourself resemble the character, even if you’ve got the costume and wig down. But that said, it all boils down to perspective. When it comes to cosplay everything is subjective; people will either agree or disagree with your methods and reasoning, and that’s fine. There’s no right way, and we should all just accept that people do things differently.’ Gorgeous costuming on display, putting Tachibana on the list is a no brainer.
“How can I be a famous cosplayer?” and I just shake my head and sigh. I often say, “This is a hobby. I just do it for fun! We should all love each other and not try to monetize it.” Even through the talent and humbleness, Ana Aesthetic has somehow broke the mold and crossed to the otherside of being prolific. She is heavily involved in helping others by documenting con visits, nutrition, make-up, tutorials and more. Known as “Ana Aesthetic” among the convention crowd, she is a recognized voice in the community – known as much for her costumes as she is for her articles and interviews on cosplay.
With over 15 years of experience, Giorgia is a famous Italian Cosplayer, eurobeat singer and model (duh! How gorgeous is she?)! She lives in Italy near Verona (the city of Romeo and Juliet), but, thanks to cosplay, she travels very often around the world as a guest in many conventions. She often gets called to introduce Cosplay events and Music contests…after all…this is her life!
Riddle has been costuming for over a decade, has organized cosplay charities, won awards, done it all, etc. She is the very definition of prolific and always produces excellent results. This list wouldn’t be complete without her.
Crystal Graziano is a cosplayer from South California and started cosplaying in 2005 at the San Diego Comic Con. She creates the costumes by herself and puts a lot energy and time into them. She and her cosplays gained interest during the years, she was mentioned multiple times on blog like Kotaku and her pictures became quite popular.
After securing a spot as the zombie annihilating “Juliet Starling” in “Lollipop Chainsaw”, Cosplayer and gamer Jessica Nigri has quickly become one of the most recognizable faces in gaming and in cosplay. GAOW!
Linda Le (Vampy Bit Me) is the most amazing cosplay model in this universe (and in alternate universes as well). She lives, breathes, and eats art, love, metal, cosplay and worships donuts. I really don’t know how she keeps her figure but I do know that she can rock the X-Men’s Psylocke look, vampire hunter, and any anime and comic book characters you can think of.
Yaya is an international costume designer/cosplayer with 13 years experience, artistic model and widely recognized ambassador for Cosplay. Yaya is one of only few cosplayers in the world to build a business in this hobby-ist community, but even after a decade of success, she strives to stay true to what got her into this field originally – fun and creativity. To this day, Yaya has made a myriad of costumes in the genres of anime/manga, video games, sci-fi and of course from her own original designs. She is the Queen of cosplay.
