LOS ANGELES—Superhero “Cosplayer Extraordinaire” Tanya Tate is looking for a new costume. The British babe has been cosplaying at comic conventions for the last year, wearing the easily identifiable uniforms of some of the genre’s greatest superheroes. Now Tanya wants to add a more personalized costume to her repertoire and she is reaching out to the comic community to give her a hand. Tanya has launched a contest where entrants design her superhero costume. The winner of the contest will receive a lunch date with Tanya during Comic-Con.
“I’ve been wanting my own costume for awhile now,” said Tanya. “I think it would be fun to do something that coincides with Comic-Con. I just hope the winner doesn’t mind having lunch with me dressed as a superhero.”
Superhero costume designers are encouraged to take part with the winner being announced on July 18. The winner will be chosen by Tanya based on which design she likes best. The winning costume designer will receive a lunch date with Tanya on Saturday, July 23 in San Diego. Tanya will take said winner out to lunch at one of the restaurants located in Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego. Winner must be in San Diego on July 23 and must be 18 or older. More information may be found on Tanya’s superhero cosplay blog.
Tanya has been a hit in the comic community since she first donned a superhero costume for the first time at San Diego Comic-Con in 2010. News sites from Life.com, GettyImages.com, KTLA.com and OCRegister.com to BleedingCool.com, NerdReactor.com, CosmicBookNews.com and GirlsGoneComic.com have all featured Tanya. IGN.com recently showcased the costumed cutie in a feature called Tanya Tate: Cosplayer Extraordinaire. Tanya was named the Cosplay Girl of the Month by ComicImpact.com in April, and in June Tanya was anointed Critiques4Geeks.com’s first ever Geek Babe of the Month. Her superhero cosplay and news blog, JustaLottaTanya.com, has been skyrocketing in popularity since it launched just a few short months ago. In addition to her daily updates on JustaLottaTanya.com, Tanya has also landed writing gigs for WorldOfSuperheroes.com and Geekscape.net.
