Every month The D20 Girls will accept entries from around the world to compete as our Cosplay of the month.
September introduces you to Melissa Busha (Miric) from Colorado. She cosplays Rayne from BloodRayne.
I am particularly proud of this cosplay because I made everything but
my shoes and the hair on the wig. I had to sew a lot of this by hand because I didn’t own a sewing machine at the time and I had never worked with leather material before. My swords were also handmade and swing on a hinge to lock into place, which can make for good action shots but can be put up for when I’m just resting or walking around. I chose to cosplay this character not just because she is sexy but because I feel like her and I possess a lot of the same personality traits including: sarcasm, swearing like a sailor, and striving to achieve her goals. I have always been a fan of anything undead like zombies and vampires, while she it technically a damphir (half human, half vampire) and this game is just great hack and slash fun! Being in this cosplay has also helped boost my self esteem in my personal life as well as help me get the confidence to start putting my cosplay out in social media. Even my name, Miric, is actually an acronym tribute to her: Make It Rayne In Colorado. I really do owe a lot to this cosplay and hope people enjoying seeing her as much as I like being her! These photos were done by my friend Joran Dibble who doesn’t have a photography page unfortunately.
