Asta Young is a cosplayer who represents everything that the profession/hobby should be about — fun! As she says it:

We should celebrate diversity in cosplay. Lets remind others to be kind, that cosplay is for all. It doesn’t matter if our skin color/height/weight/gender/etc doesn’t match, cosplay is about having fun.

The 4-foot-5-inch, Asian, self-proclaimed “chibi-sized” artist has put together an impressive array of creative video game cosplays from Pokemon‘s Misty to Lara Croft to clever creations like a Borderlands/Super Mario Toad mashup.

Here are some of our favorite Asta video game cosplays:

Lara Croft

Kled (League of Legends)

Chun-Li (Street Fighter)
