New Episode!!! COSPLAYER HOTSPOT – EPISODE 4: HEATHER ELIZABETH

COSPLAYER HOTSPOT – EPISODE 4: HEATHER ELIZABETH
Hear how Heather got into cosplay, her REAL feelings about John Wesley Shipp and why d**k pics are always a bad idea

Welcome back to the 4th episode of Cosplayer HotSpot – where I interview interesting cosplayers I have met since I started writing my book “Anatomy of a Cosplayer: Tales From Behind the Mask.” Some have been interviewed in the book, while others I met after publishing it – all have intriguing stories that deserve being told in this series.

Heather and her boyfriend Kirk Disla (interview coming soon) are great friends and co-conspirators in my group the Legion of SuperVillains. They have certainly made my costuming life a lot more fun. They have put together costumes for the Legion of Doom (Cheetah and ToyMan) and the Flash Rogues (Trickster and Mirror Master) just because I wanted those groups to happen…. Believe me when I say I will never forget that kindness..

Heather’s current roster of costumes are:The Trickster, Cheetah, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Wild Dog, Black Cat, Gwen Stacy, Lucille Ball,
Black Canary, Walking Dead’s Beth, Fairly Oddparents, Wanda, My Hero Academia Ochaco Uraraka, Jessie from Toy Story, Velma from Post Apocalyptic Scooby Doo and the Gang, She-Ra, Killer Frost, Dove from Hawk and Dove, Terra from Teen Titans, Artemis, Speedy, Felicity Smoak,
Poison from Street Fighter, Bride of Frankenstein and Tiffany from Bride of Chucky… And more….

Heather is a mom and a Medical Lab Tech as well as one of the co-owners of Tricksters Escape (Escape room coming soon)

He also was very responsible for me joining the group back in the beginning. He is also the founder of NYC’s USS Growler NCC – 76369 Star Trek costuming group. And he has been active in science fiction costuming since the early 90s.
