AZ Powergirl/Cara Nicole is more than a pretty face. She is a world-wide cosplay sensation, pushing the limits of cosplay as an art form by creating books, appearing on national television, radio, and print ads. Cara has worked for Marvel and Big City Comics at San Diego Comicon and is the model for Magic: The Gathering’s Emmara Tandris/ Soul of the Accord cards (not many people can say that they are Magic cards).
Cara Nicole travels internationally to comic book, anime, pop- culture, and other conventions. But with all of her success, she has not lost sight of her start in comics and still participates in as many local charity events as possible. As a true supporter to her passion of costuming, Cara uses her experience as an elite cosplayer to teach panels on Cosplay Safety, The Business of Cosplay, Crowdfunding, as well as mentors many newer costumers to grow in the business. Her Photo Books also crowdfund with 1500% of their initial goals.
