Recently, we’ve been featuring a lot of the heavy hitters in the cosplay community like Ivy Doomkitty and Nicole Marie Jean in our weekly League Cosplay Showcase, but I also like to spotlight the up-and-comers in the world of costuming, like one of our very own League members Amanda Dawn!

Amanda is based out of Kentucky (she drives by the “Bat Cave” sign all the time), and she’s a beautiful and super-talented cosplayer/Geek Girl who sews and hand-crafts all of her costumes. As you can see, she makes a badass Mortal Kombat 3 version of Kitana, and in the gallery below you can see her absolutely gorgeous Arwen from Lord of the Rings; her adorable Ariel from The Little Mermaid; a haunting Black Swan makeup job; and a truly menacing Darth Maul! Amanda has also re-created some beautiful dresses from films like Atonement and Titanic.

Amanda is definitely a name to look out for in the future of cosplay, so help her out by Liking her Facebook Fan Page, and leaving some positive comments for her. Amanda, the League salutes you!

Jeff is the defining voice of his generation. Sadly, that generation exists only in an alternate dimension where George Lucas became supreme overlord of the Earth in 1979 and replaced every television broadcast and theatrical film on the planet with Star Wars and Godzilla movies. In this dimension, he’s just a guy from New England who likes writing snarky things about superheroes, monsters, and robots.
