Welcome back to the Geek News Network’s Featured Cosplayer page! This is where we introduce you to cosplayers that you should know about.
This week, we here at GNN would like to introduce you to Lyz Brickley. Lyz is an amazing cosplayer, model, and nerd coming from California.
Starting out as a fashion and editorial model, Lyz has been modeling for a number of years but has only been cosplaying since she discovered it back in 2009. Since then she was instantly hooked.
Over the past couple of years, Lyz’s popularity in the geek community has skyrocketed. She has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry such as Razer, 2K Games, and Filthy Casual just to name a few.
Of course Lyz does all of this with her best friend, partner in crime, and amazing photographer Darshelle Stevens. Darshelle has been doing professional photography for about 5 years and cosplay photography for just a year. In my opinion Darshelle is one of the most talented photographers in the industry right now. You can also occasionally catch Darshelle in cosplay while helping Lyz!
Some of Lyz’s most popular and current cosplays include Thorn from Battleborn, Firecracker Jinx from League of Legends, Ryuko from Kill La Kill, and Lightning from Final Fantasy just to name a few; all of which were photographed by Darshelle. You can buy prints of all of these at her store linked below.
Today you can follow along Lyz and Darshelle on their epic adventures to create top-notch cosplay content by donating to their Patreon! By doing so you will be granted access to such things as behind the scenes videos and photos, costume making and photo editing time-lapse videos, final, hi-res photos and so much more.
Below you can see some great photos of Lyz Brickley in her Thorn cosplay from Battleborn, which she premiered at San Diego Comic Con 2015.
