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.

The Comic Book Critic Featured Cosplayer Interview this week is:

Liana Richardson from Philadelphia, PA

Liana Richardson as Arkham City Harley Quinn

Originally from Portland, Maine and now living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Liana Richardson has quickly blossomed as both a costumer and as a cosplayer. She began honing her talents in the hobby only a couple of years ago, but she’s coming along quickly, as can be seen in her female Nightwing costume.

Not only do her talents lie in the creation of the outfits she wears, but she seems very comfortable in front of the lens as well; displaying a lot of fun and enjoyment in her photos.
