Meet the Cosplayer: @mayan.goddess

7. Do you do cosplay events or competitions? Do you have a favorite you like to attend and why?

I don’t usually do competitions.

I don’t think I’m quite at that level to be honest.

Instead, I do conventions to make friends and inspire people around me.

My main effort, however, is my charity work.

I’m a Cosplayer with Kids Can Cosplay. Kids Can Cosplay does hospital visitations, homeless shelter visits, charity events, and conventions. I use my cosplay characters to connect with and inspire children to open their creative minds through cosplay.

I am a video game streamer on Twitch; Twitch is a service that allows me to play video games and connect with viewers live on the internet. There, I do monthly charity events for different non-profit organizations and often incorporate my cosplay to help raise funds.

Through the Twitch Charity events, I’ve raised over four thousand dollars for these organizations.

I also am part of a podcast called Geek Boots Military Nerds. Geek Boots is a group of men and women from each branch of service who are also in the Cosplay community. Every week, we discuss a variety of topics, from movies to comic books, to military life. It’s a way to connect with people like me to be themselves and know that they can take pride in their life stories as well.

    You are definitely an amazing young lady. You play your roles well, and you have nothing to worry about with your appearance…you are gorgeous… and you have a remarkable attitude. I think it’s great that you inspire young ladies…especially the shy and impressionable ones. Keep up the great work, and above all, have fun.
