Adya Cosplay has been a cosplayer for over eight years. Adya’s first cosplay was Arisa from the Green Lantern Corps. She had such a positive experience from cosplaying Arisia that she immediately made plans to start more cosplay projects. She enjoys cosplaying characters from animation (such as Steampunk Princess Tiana, Doc McStuffins, and Tiny Toons), comics, and movies. This year she has honor of appearing in 2017’s Women Vs. Cosplay calendar. In addition, she is a member of the Philadelphia Avengers. Adya is passionate about giving back to the community. Adya participates in events that help promote positive causes and travels to schools, hospitals, churches, and other locations.
