Rosanna Rocha began her cosplay work by wearing a Halloween costume to a comic convention.
Rosanna made the costume herself and, while she didn’t feel it was very good having people appreciate the work she had put into it gave her a great feeling.
Within a year of that event, she obtained tickets to the San Diego Comic Con and knew she needed to make some costumes for the event. Rosanna borrowed her aunt’s sewing machine. She then offered modeling services to a fashion designer friend in exchange for lessons in sewing and Rosanna began her foray into the world of cosplay.
Looking through her pictures, viewers can see that Rocha has developed her skills in costume making as she combines a sexy look and an eye for detail.
Describing herself as an alternative cosplayer, (due to piercings and tattoos,) Rocha draws on a wide variety of comic book, video game and anime characters for her portrayals.
Surprisingly, she draws criticism for her alt look, but she ignores the negative comments, choosing to enjoy her cosplay work instead.
Tens of thousands the world over agree with her choice, as evidenced through her social media where she interacts with fans and encourages people to say hi.
Currently travelling across the United States, Rocha keeps fans updated as to the events she will be attending, including the dates and what booth she will be at.
