There are many talented models and performers who bring their love & enthusiasm to dressing up as their favorite characters. Comic Book Critic will occasionally showcase a performer who embodies this spirit of cosplaying.

Whether it’s creating the costume from scratch, altering the appearance of an existing one, or just getting into character, these performers spend a lot of time and effort on their craft. As much as we all enjoy seeing our favorite fictional characters represented in real life, let’s not forget the behind-the-scenes work that goes into that portrayal.

One thing is for certain though, their love of cosplaying shines through in their work.

Manda Cowled as Harley Quinn

One of the founding member of The Geekettes, Manda Cosplay has only been dressing up as her favorite characters for a short time, but she has amassed a more complete repertoire of costumes than many of her peers.

Win A Job At DC Entertainment by Assisting Suicide

Help Harley Quinn Kill Herself & Win A Job!
