Cosplay Featured Guest: Tara Azarian

Tara Cosplay (Tara-Nicole Azarian in real life) is the energetic, quirky content creator, actress, disabled model, host and cosplayer. She is a series regular on the new TV show “Crazy” where she plays ADDIE (a disabled character). She is known for her unique combination of girl-next-door sex appeal and brains! She is well known in the cosplay community as the Pin-up cosplayer with a cheeky sense of humor. Her Instagram feed always provides a good dose of eye candy and clever puns.

Tara is a strong advocate of the movement: ANYONE can cosplay. As a person with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (heart condition), Degenerative Disc Disease, Arthritis in her spine, Lupus, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Fibromyalgia, Asthma and Scoliosis, she understands the challenges and rewards of being a cosplayer with disabilities. She is living proof that cosplay can help transport a person to a place where they feel stronger and more empowered, like the superhero they are portraying. Cosplay has helped her come to peace with living with her disabilities.

At San Diego Comic Con 2018 she was won a Cosplay Creator Award from the SYFY Network for her gender-bend Elvis Presley Cosplay! Receiving this award is one of her favorite cosplay moments!
