Cosplay Spotlight

We’re spotlighting talent in the cosplay community!
Every month, The Variant showcases cosplayers who display talent, creativity, and a positive voice within the cosplay community.

Greetings from your local Danger Lady cosplayer, SulkySiren!
Living with the smell of superglue and taking over every work surface in the house for cosplay is a special skill of mine that I’m constantly honing. I adore finding new characters to fall in love with and am terribly drawn to any that are just particularly kick-ass. Spikes, leaves, imaginary fireballs I’m here for it!

When not dressed in a variety of costumes I go by Grace. Day to day I’m helping manage the amazing Ultimate Comics shop over in Cary North Carolina and I’m the Cosplay Director for NC Comicon: Bull City, Oak City Comicon and Greensboro Comicon!
More swords and spikes likely coming soon!

This month we welcome SulkySiren back to our Cosplay Spotlight!!
Not even gonna lie, both of Grace’s shoots are FIRE, literally and figuratively!!

With Greenfield Photography’s ethereal set of Triss Merigold from The Witcher and Tomisina’s set of Marvel’s Magik (one of our bucket list shoots) watch your thermostats because it ain’t the weather that’s making you sweat!!!

WAIT!!…why are you still reading this??
