Vraskaa Cosplay

About Vraskaa…

Vraskaa Cosplay is the alias of the costumer Hunter Rich-Smith from Austin, TX. She began building her repertoire of cosplay in 2015 with her first cosplay being A.B.A. from Guilty Gear. Ever since she has grown attached to the creation of her costumes, learning new techniques and skills to keep improving, the feeling of being in character, and the positive effect her work has on others. She focuses mostly on large armor builds from video games that are accompanied by big props to match. While she is self taught in the ways of working with foams, silicones, and thermoplastics it hasn’t held her back from bringing projects into reality that many other crafters shy away from. She has been featured in Cosplayzine on multiple occasions, been featured on a Kotaku article, had her Bioshock cosplay shared by the makers of the game, and has hosted panels over building cosplay armor in the past to help others create. Stop by her booth to see some of her past work and the new creations she will be debuting at this event!

With over 290 credits to his name, he has managed to play a variety of characters that are almost as colorful as his hair. Some recent roles include Nagisa Haruki in Free, and Free Eternal Summer, MonoKuma in Danganronpa, Clear in Dramatical Murder, and Doug in Gangsta. Thrilled to be a part of the Toonami re-launch in the roles of Ganta Igarashi in Deadman Wonderland, and Heihachi Hayashida in Samurai 7, and even more thrill to follow that up the in the following summer’s thriller Another as Kouichi Sakakibara.

When he’s not in a booth with headphones on, you can usually find him sporting headphones behind “the decks”at many a music event. A veteran nightclub DJ of many years, he has jumped at the opportunity to play music and organize late night dances at many of the conventions he attends. He currently helps organize dance and music tracks at several US conventions. Greg is also a member of Project BECK, who perform music from the anime Beck Mongolian Chop Squad, and has had a blast reliving the music from the show with his friends. Thrilled to be able to share his love of music with anyone willing to listen – from packed rooms at anime conventions, to the legendary stage of The Knitting Factory (NYC), he’s always ready to make a little noise.
