About the Artists:
“Hey everyone! I’m Team-Up Spidey and I'm a cosplayer based in Portland, Oregon. For the last five years, I've been dressing up as my favorite characters alongside my sister under the mantle of: Don't Call it a Team-Up Cosplay. You can usually find me at many local events in the Portland area cosplaying as Spider-Man, Noctis, and many more. I'm also on Instagram at: @dont.call.it.a.team.up_cosplay.” Photo Credit for Noctis Cosplay: Jason Delaney (@jasondelaney13)
The Honest Cosplayer
A cosplayer of the Pacific Northwest, Kristy, also known as The Honest Cosplayer, began cosplaying in 2013. A fan of just about everything, she loves working in all different mediums: fabric, foam, resin, 3D printing and animatronics. A teacher by trade, avid reader for fun and eclectic cat collector, Kristy is best known for her detailed interpretations of villains. You can view her complete portfolio and read detailed descriptions about her builds at TheHonestCosplayer.com. Photo Credit for Suki Cosplay: Susan Onysko Photography
Charlie Rocket is a cosplayer based on the East Coast. Juggling working full time in healthcare and being a mom of two, she started cosplaying as an outlet. Seven years later, Charlie cosplays professionally at cons across the US. In addition to hosting countless panels on diversity, body image and inclusion, she is also the CEO of an upcoming convention in NC that celebrates diversity and the geek/nerd community. Charlie's goal is to help others embrace their differences and find comfort in their own skin!
