Hailing from the Empire State, Toni Darling busted into the cosplay scene at the Zombie Bikini Contest in downtown Mesa, AZ in January of 2012. Like a goober, she dressed up as a cowgirl zombie and with that she paved a path of her own in the local geek community.
She is now a professional cosplayer who travels the country as a guest at dozens of comic and gaming conventions. She loves table top games, comics, cult films and kittens. You have most likely caught a glimpse of her demoing games, or in front of the video camera working with various networks like Geek News Network, Geekssociated Press and Bleeding Cool's "The Weekly Bleed". An entrepreneur, Toni also produces The Cosplay Calendar which has produced national and local editions that have been sold across the country AND co-owns a cosplay fitness program called Hero Elements, that combines fitness and nerdiness to promote health and wellness in both the cosplay and geek community. Her most notable cosplays include Thor and Lady Death, and you can find out more about her work and ridiculous geekery at facebook.com/tonidarlingaz or on youtube.com/user/tonidarlingofficial
