Interview with Cosplay Wrestler Sera Cimmino!

Interview with Cosplay Wrestler Sera Cimmino!

One of the best genre mashups ever is Cosplay + Wrestling. It’s also quite a logical convergence considering society’s obsession with the superhuman and how wrestlers are pretty much live-action versions of comic book characters. Just recently, WWE star Alexa Bliss appeared wearing a Harley Quinn-inspired outfit at her Backlash performance, which was nice. But there are wrestlers out there who take very seriously their wrestling – and their cosplaying.

One such wrestler/cosplayer is Sera Cimmino, and we’ve been lucky enough to get an exclusive interview with her!

NS – Hi Sera, thanks so much for speaking with NerdSociety today. So …

Cosplay Experience with Kayla!

NS – Kayla, thanks so much for taking the time to speak with NerdSociety! So let’s start at the beginning… What inspired you to first start cosplaying?

Kayla –  It was mostly following a lot of amazing cosplayers on Instagram that inspired me to first start. So when I went to my first con, I thought “Yeah I definitely can’t go without some kind of cosplay.” I did a quick, cheap getup of Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead and felt so cool and confident with everyone wanting pictures and telling me how awesome I looked, ever since then I’ve been …

Interview with Cartoonist Lonnie Millsap!

Interview with Cartoonist Lonnie Millsap!

 

Humor comes in many forms and today, with the advent of the internet, the expression of humor has been transformed into  snappy one-liners on Twitter and memes. Back in the day, the Far Side by Gary Larson was a groundbreaking single-panel cartoon that expressed a similar type of cynicism and tongue-in-cheek view of society, the animal kingdom and the world at large. I met an artist at a con once whose humor harkens back to the work of Gary Larsen but goes even farther pushing the envelope of the bizarre.

If you’re a frequenter of cons, you might have come …

bp Cosplay Interview with BP Stormborn!
One of the more recognizable cosplay photos taken at the Wizard World Con was of BP Stormborn dressed as Cyclops. It’s always interesting to talk with a cosplayer to get their perspective on things, particularly those who like to frequent the cons and cosplay in groups (which isn’t an easy thing to pull off!) I was fortunate enough to interview BP Stormborn and here’s what he had to say….
NS – Hey thanks for talking to us Stormborn. So when did you first get into Cosplaying?
SB–I officially began cosplaying at the 2014 New York City Comic Con.
NS – What

Las Vegas Amazing! Comic Con Recap

The Amazing! Comic Con was held recently at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. In its second year running, the con had an amazing turnout. Coincidentally,  the Electric Daisy Carnival was going on at the same time and there were said to be upwards of 400,000 tourists flooding Las Vegas over the weekend. From a marketing standpoint, it was a great time for a con and the turnout affirmed that.  I imagine next year will bring even more attendees as the the con’s popularity continues to grow. Check out some of the cosplay action below……

Jem and the Holograms came out at a time when music videos and high fashion were being given a lot of exposure. Hasbro, Marvel Productions, and Sunbow …
