As the cosplay community becomes larger and more widely accepted in society, we are seeing dozens of cosplayers rise to the top and become somewhat of a celebrity in the community. Gaining thousands and in some scenarios millions of Facebook fans for their unique twists on popular characters, sometimes we aren’t seeing the up and coming artists who put blood, sweat and tears into each and every costume they create.
While we have no problem featuring Yaya Han, Jessica Nigri, Lindsay Elyse, Ani-Mia and Ivy DoomKitty, we want to take this time to shed some light on those who have recently caught our eyes as they are bubbling under.
5. Dreamkitty Cosplay
Hailing from Canada, Dreamkitty is one of a kind in the cosplay community. Her overall passion for cosplay and excitement for each costume she creates is truly inspirational. She also loves helping cosplay newbie’s get into the community and often converts her non-cosplaying friends into the scene, even if it’s just for a shoot or two.
4. Marie-Claude Bourbonnais
This Blonde French-Canadian bombshell has a very cosplay oriented past as a costume and fashion designer. So the transition from seamstress the world of Professional Modeling and Cosplaying was rather seamless. Bourbonnais has been cosplaying since 2009 and since then has already broken over 20k Twitter followers and over 36k Instagram followers. She has also appeared in numerous magazines such as FHM andPlayStation Official Magazine and Elle.
3. Callie Cosplay
The name CALLIE COSPLAY is spreading like a wildfire in the fabulous world of cosplay. There are so many amazing things we could say about her, but we figured we’d let her say it for herself:
“On a day-to-day basis, I strive to improve what I do, how I do it, and with increasing experience. My goal is to make people smile – to entertain people and make a difference. By doing this, I aspire to bring each and every character to life. Know the character, love them…BECOME THEM! Not some fake, drastic rendition of what they stand for…but who they are, really. My dream is to make these amazing creations of great minds come to life.”
2. Anna Faith
Anna Faith and her sister shot to fame in the cosplaying world when they first adopted the identities of Elsa and her sister Anna from the insanely popular Disney film ‘Frozen’. Anna Faith has quite possibly the world’s most believable and accurate cosplay of Queen Elsa, and has skyrocketed to social media fame with over half a million Instagram followers and almost 70k Twitter followers.
YuffieBunny is not new to the world of modeling and cosplaying, but we have definitely been seeing more and more of her in the spotlight as of late. Starting her career in 2002, she has taken her passion for cosplaying and modeling to create unique combinations in each and every character. She also sews a majority of her cosplays that have not been gifted or commissioned by friends or fans which definitely amazes us! YuffieBunny has also been making more con appearances as of late, and has recently started selling prints of her more famed cosplays. It definitely won’t be long until we have our fangirl shrine up for her!
