Layze Michelle Cosplay Feature
Welcome back, cosplay fans! It’s time for the weekly COGconnected cosplay feature. This week, we’re looking at the stunning and detailed work of Layze Michelle. Layze Michelle is a talented cosplayer with a gift for cinematic photoshoots. She’s famous for her many renditions of Princess Zelda from the Legend of Zelda franchise. However, Zelda is far from the only video game girl she’s brought to life.
Layze Michelle replies to fans on Twitter in Portuguese, Japanese, and English. She’s based in Brazil and describes herself as a Sony and Nintendo fangirl. When she’s not crafting gorgeous, game-accurate costumes, she’s uploading her patterns to Patreon. This makes her a great resource for other cosplayers.
Check out page 2 for more amazing cosplay.
It’s been a year since I did this Zelda photoshoot and I’m so happy to see that new Zelda’s concept art fits almost perfectly!!!
