As if Nadya Sonika wasn’t already a standout amongst cosplayers, she’s absolutely solidified herself as one of the most fun cosplayers to follow with her Ryu VS Vega cosplay with Jennifer Van Damsel. Their “playful battle” also serves as my introduction to Jennifer Van Damsel, who’s a fantastic cosplayer in her own right. I’m always on the lookout for eye catching cosplay so I’m most certainly looking forward to seeing what Jennifer Van Damsel & Nadya Sonika do next!
We team up with Kitchen Overlord’s Chris-Rachael Oseland for a new, weekly video series where we discuss race and gender in geek culture. This week, we tackle popular yet polarizing TV shows like Big Bang Theory, Heroes of Cosplay and King of Nerds and we ask the question, Are They Laughing With Us? Or At Us?
If you’re not an avid viewer of Kelli Nova’s Closet Cosplay then you’re doing yourself a disservice. Cosplay can sometimes carry the reputation of being a hobby that’s exclusive to those who have lots of money to pour into making costumes. On the contrary, Kelli Nova of Weird-Girls.com, not only disproves that notion but shows that with a little creativity you can transform your everyday garments into an awesome cosplay! In this episode of Closet Cosplay Kelli Nova creates an amazing cosplay of the Baroness from G.I. Joe! Not only is her Baroness Cobra-Tastic but it’s easily my favorite Closet Cosplay thus far!
In this episode of Straight Outta Austin! we’re excited to be joined by Sara Moni! Sara Moni is not only a fantastic cosplayer and a great guest but she’s an all around cool person! We get to know Sara Moni a bit better and run the gauntlet with many of our favorite Marvel comics. We also talk about the recent news regarding the Gotham TV series, a potential Black Widow solo film, Ellen Page coming out, rumors that Danny McBride is in talks to star in a Knight Rider remake, and of course we continue our coverage of War World Shia!
I had the pleasure of running into Sara Moni last year at Alamo City Comic Con and became an instant fan of hers! Humming the opening theme to X-Men: The Animated Series has that kind of effect of me. Sara Moni kicks ass at bringing Marvel characters to life: her Wasp, Polaris and Psylocke cosplays are some of my favorites and they’re just the tip of the iceberg!
It’s a huge understatement to say that male cosplayers don’t get the same level of exposure as their female counterparts, and I myself am not exempt from this. That said, I’m not putting together this post simply to help balance the scale but because Spencer Doe has fantastic cosplays of some of my favorite characters namely Batman and Gambit!
Don’t fret the wintery weather, instead embrace the warm feels of the Straight Outta Austin! podcast. We’re incredibly excited to be joined by the one and only Kelli Nova of Weird-Girls.com!
