While the Dallas Comic Show is one of the smaller conventions in North Texas, it has the wonderful benefit of being perfectly sized to give smaller creators a chance at getting featured in ways that larger conventions just can’t provide. With guests like Kerry Gammill, Sam De La Rosa, Yancy Butler, & Mark Pillow acting as the big pulls for the convention, other creators on the rise are able to be given space to setup shop & meet the public, as well. With the internet, & social media in particular, providing an unprecedented level of access to the public for creators of all types, it can be easy to forget how important being able to meet people face to face really is. A perfect example of this is the lovely Katrina Rose Cosplay!
One of the newer additions to the North Texas cosplay community, Katrina Rose is a fun, energetic cosplayer who has developed a small, dedicated following over the past year or so. I actually met her for the first time last year at Fan Expo Dallas, in the same way that I have met so many other cosplayers. She was a friend of a friend in the community and we had a brief conversation about how cool her group costume was (she was the Buffy in a Buffy, Angel, & Cordelia trio). Fast forward to a year later & our paths crossed again. As I was making my way through the convention, talking to friends old & new, I saw her at a table in the middle of the cosplay section & went over to say hi. Right away, she was incredibly warm & cheery! Even as the day went on, it didn’t matter if there was one person or a whole group at her table, she just seemed happy to be there! With her work ranging from Spider-Gwen to boudoir Star Trek, she is constantly looking for new ways to express her love of her favorite nerdy fandoms. In fact, while you may get the impression that she is a hardcore Ren Fair girl just by looking through her Instagram, she readily admits that her comic based cosplays have become her main love.
If you ever have the chance to meet Katrina Rose Cosplay at a convention, I would highly recommend doing so! You won’t regret it!
