Carley Winn loves cosplaying Harley Quinn and has been doing so since 1998. She has over forty versions of this character alone. She is a long-time comic book fan of everything from Batman to X-Men. She also is very knowledgeable about retro video games and tabletops and has helped run several LARPs. She was mostly self-taught with help from Gosu Loli magazine, which she discovered while studying in Japan. This led her to sew Lolita fashion, and through cosplay, she has made everything from ball gowns to battle wear. What she loves most about cosplaying is doing so with others and for charitable causes. She is a member of Heroes for Hire, a cosplay charity group, and she is also on the board of directors for Circus Complex, a nonprofit circus arts school in Newton.
Carley will be hosting the Create-A-Character Cosplay Contest for Cash Prizes in the Courtyard and the Kids Cosplay Parade Saturday and Sunday.
Cosplay fun will be in the Main Courtyard of the Boxboro Regency Hotel during NorthEast ComicCon & Collectibles Extravaganza.
