Cosplay was in full force at this year’s Edmonton Expo. I met up with a local Cosplayer by the name of Miss Chezza.
Miss Chezza, who’s real name is Cheryl, has cosplayed for just over two years now. Born and raised in East Yorkshire, England, by her Chinese mother and British Father, she moved to Canada when she was 12. She studied at Nanjing University in China and earned her Master’s Degree in Renaissance Literature while living in England for a year.
Miss Chezza is a huge fan of video games, comic books and anime. A lot of her inspirations for what to cosplay as next comes from those geeky sources. Some of the character’s she has cosplayed are Mario, Chun-Li, Lara Croft, Viking Ariel and Rogue, from the X-Men. Her first cosplay was that of the Silk Spectre II from The Watchmen, and it quickly grew from there.
I had a great time chatting with Miss Chezza and I look foward to seeing what character’s she cosplays as next.
