This week on Cosplay Cuties we feature Playboy Playmate and model Sara Jean Underwood. Since first drawing the public’s attention with her appearance in the 2005 October Playboy (wearing a body paint Oregon State Beavers jersey and a matching bikini brief) Underwood has made numerous appearances in Playboy magazine both as the playmate of the month and as the playmate of the year.
Believe it or not the same lady who made the list of the ‘25 Hottest Playboy Celebrities’ is quoted as saying that she didn’t believe she was pretty enough to be named Playmate of the Year. Outside of her success with Playboy, (whom she still models for) numerous television and movie appearances Sara Jean Underwood is also an avid CosPlayer.
From the Fifth Element’s Leeloo; to the Geonosis outfit that Padme wore during Star Wars II Attack of the Clones and even as Bane from Batman Sara Jean Underwood draws on a wide variety of characters to portray; that she always seems to have fun portraying.
Many people may find it hard to believe that a lady who made her mark as the hot sexy ‘girl next door’ would be willing to dress up in comic and movie characters and go to comic conventions, but even the briefest of looks through a Flickr page dedicated to her will see that not only does she enjoy Cosplay but her fans enjoy her Cosplay work as well.
