Leaping Lizard Cosplay

Leaping Lizard Cosplay, or just Liz for short, has been cosplaying since 2007. Currently residing out of beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii. Liz lives by the motto, “Cositivity: Positivity in Cosplay.”

Liz is first and foremost a video game addict. That said, her cosplay portfolio covers a vast array of characters from video games, anime, television, comic books, and cartoons. She is also a fitness nut and loves to promote an active and healthy lifestyle.

As a fan of all cosplay, Liz’s favorite part of the cosplay community is meeting and interacting with new people.

During her time as a cosplayer, Liz has won several awards for her craftsmanship and skit based competitions, including Best in Show, several judges awards, and best animated skit. She has also modeled for companies, hired to cosplay original characters from comics, and been featured as a guest cosplayer, judge, and panelist for conventions and out-of-con events.

Media wise, Liz was a featured cosplayer on the web series Days til’ Dragoncon, and has also been featured and interviewed on several websites, television, documentaries, magazines, and newspapers.
