New Shoot will be up later today and all Patrons new and old will be getting one of my exclusive Collector Cards for the month of December!!

Last Christmas I gave you my heart and this Black Cat Christmas cosplay. Circa 2018. BTW I made this costume from Krampus’ Cape. My pug adjacent rescue dog made the cut for that shoot. I adopted her from a local animal shelter in late 20I4. She instantly loved me from behind the glass. The shelter wouldn’t let me adopt her at that time due to a nasty infection over her eye and they didn’t know what it was. I called every day until they said she was clear and then immediately went to the shelter to get her. One of the requirements was that you bring any other dogs to be sure they got along. My bigger dog loved this pup as well and goobered her up by putting her tiny chug head into her golden-doodle mouth. They still didn’t want to let me take her claiming that someone had been calling about her (yea, me). They did finally let me adopt her. They named her Petunia but that just didn’t fit. Charlie was my first choice for a name but that has since evolved into Damnit Charles. She has been my cuddly baby ever since.

This was a fun 2014 impromptu photoshoot with Bald Pirate Photography. He invited me to assist with another shoot and I was fortunate to join in the fun both in front of and behind the scenes:)
2014 This Gingerbread girl was the brainchild of my good friend Momo Nicola. She found it online and we both loved it. Another big name cosplayer wore this same dress that year for her Christmas themed shoot as well. How embarrassing!! This was the first Christmas card that I had made and sent out to many of the wonderful people who have been fans and supporters. I did this for 2 years but it ultimately backfired. It turns out that many of you have your mail sent to your place of employment, have nosy neighbors, or significant others who frown on these postcards. I still send out postcards but only with crowdfunding events and many times they go into packages rather than being sent by themselves.

Krampus was a super fun Christmas cosplay. I wore this at the Phoenix Fan Fest and it was my second Holiday postcard. The suit was hand painted and made by me for this Christmas event.

As you may or may not know, I am a huge Powergirl fan and cosplayer. Here are some of my PG pics throughout my 6 years of cosplaying. Tell me your fave, sharer with your friends, and don’t forget to subscribe 😉
I apologize for the delay. I have been so busy with my new cosplay book. It is now in numerous stores fro Wyoming to Texas and everywhere in-between. I am working on packaging and shipping as well as contacting more stores. I have also been taking some time to shoot some fun new things.
Let”s take a minute to talk about that. The word Cosplay. it means Costume-Play. And it it SO MUCH FUN. there are no rules as to what you can and can’t cosplay. So feel free to explore and get out of your comfort zone.
SO: Here are some fun new shots from Alvin Johnson Photography with my new friend Mindi. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. And get a copy of my new Cosplay Photobook from http://183degreestudio.com
Did I ever tell you about the time I was radioactive? Probably not. Many moons ago I was feeling regularly ill. OK not ill per se, more like excruciating kryptonite dagger in the gut pain multiple times a day. After numerous sleepless nights and excessive deliberation I headed to… THE DOCTOR. I found him to be quite entertaining, however completely useless in the remedy of my immediate situation. After a lengthy conversation with various medical professionals it was determined that I most likely needed my gall bladder removed. Bladder’s a funny word, lol, but I digress. But before embarking on such drastic measures I was required to undergo one final test. The evening prior to Thanksgiving, I traveled far and wide (or 8 miles, no I did not see Eminem) to a dreary facility. The stench of industrial cleaners flowed throughout the many laboratories. White coats and latex hands occasionally peered out through the hallways. With the impending holiday so close you could taste the Butter Balls Basting (say that 5 times fast) this place was almost completely vacant. The time had finally come. I was to be injected with a radioactive tracer substance. For the next few hours I would be cocooned and alone surrounded by nothing but the screams of those that died there before me! OK maybe not that but it was really really loud. I mostly slept through it because hey who cares right? It’s just noise, it’s not like zombies or clowns. After this heinous torture I was informed that for the next 24 hours I would be…RADIOACTIVE!!! I couldn’t hold back the excitement! What would my superpowers be? And how would I maximize my 24 hours of superiority? In a flash my excitement and enthusiasm was stripped away as I was informed that I was to have no contact with children or the elderly. That’s it? Not very heroic if you ask me. On a positive note, Thanksgiving was around the corner. How could I use this to my advantage? Now I know what you’re thinking and no I wasn’t planning to poison the elderly or kill bratty kids. But, I could avoid them! No kiddie table for me! HA! And no creepy conversations about keeping the plastic utensils. For one brief moment, I stood back , watched as a spectator, at real life television. And do you know what I learned? I learned that the typical American Thanksgiving is just a shadow cast of any episode of The Walking Dead.
I was recently approached by the creators of Project Superwoman. This was SO COOL! I got to create a Dark Powergirl (Evil Superwoman or whatever they decide to call her). I love the costume and had the opportunity to play multiple characters including Powergirl of course.We did some green screen work so you will get to see me fly. I also did some bad ass fighting and some shit got destroyed. Oops. Then I get to play a mad scientist and fight some big dude and this is where my new badass Dark Powergirl comes into play. This won’t be out until spring but in the meantime they have some other video shorts with great girls and fun adventures to tide you over. Keep on the look out for sneak peaks of the filming on my facebook pages as well as Twitter, Tumbler and Instagram. I am AzPowergirl Everywhere. Also, You can get my new Dark PG print on my Storenvy and use promo code “BINGO” for a buy 2 get 1 free (Prints). http://183degree.storenvy.com/collections/183595-az-powergirl-prints/products/3876739-az-powergirl-superwoman-mkii-11×17-art-print
With the cosplay is not consent movement; I have a bit of a different view. I promote that nothing is consent except for consent itself. Regardless of whether or not someone (male or female) is in a costume or any other attire,they should not be exploited, antagonized, assaulted, bullied, etc.. I am a firm believer that empowering women should NOT be about belittleing men. I don’t advocate degrading, punishing, or oppressing men in the name of feminism. So in general I follow Bill and Ted’s motto “Be excellent to each other”. and I’ll get off my soap box now. lol
AND THE DRAGON COMES IN THE NIIIGHGHGHTTTT!!!! Here are some pics of me being soap boxie.
As I entered the museum I was first of all let in for FREE! That’s right FREE! Cause I’m ME! And that’s special. (OK fine they let everyone in for free but let’s not talk about that) I came across my number 1 fan! That’s right, the first fan ever made. Or one of them…whatever. They let me ride the Police Motorcycle and the sirens go WEE WOO WEE WOO! Of course I wore a helmet. Safety first. I found some cosplays waiting for me and tried some new looks. Did some work under the hood of a truck. perhaps I can fill it with Mexicans that will dig me a pool.
I feel like it’s been forever since I posted here. I have so much to tell! I was fortunate to be a guest at the Mesa Az stop of the Fireball Run. This is a great event to help locate missing children across the country and raise awareness of child abduction. After that event I headed out to El Paso. I had a great time at EPCon (El Paso Comicon). I did kind of feel like an outcast. all my cosplay and artist peeps were in Vegas. But the El Paso locals always treat me well and make me feel at home. I did my cowgirl cosplay as well as Powergirl and Jill Valentine. Has a little snafu and forgot my disk and chain but a trip to Walmart and I got things going again. Then it was off to Corpus Christi for Realmscon. This was primarily an anime show but I was more than welcome and my table faced the bay. It was so beautiful. I helped judge the cosplay contest and had a few panels. I did cosplay safety and the business of cosplay.I have a little down time to get some new content out and costumes made and stuf and stuff and more stuff. Did I mention that I met Grumpy Cat? Yea that happened. I also wrote an article about it for Geek News Network. And with NYCC here in a few days , and my inability to attend this year, Webble will have my exclusive Binary cospaint card as well as my Powergirl card. I believe these cards are free. So now i’m gonna give ya’ll some links and pics and a vieo of me doing the Hustle (or some resemblance of it)
