Callie Cosplay is the alias of Florida costumer, Leah Pennell. While attending school for her Bachelor's Degree in Music Management, she began building her repertoire of cosplays after first dressing up as Black Widow for The Avengers movie release in May 2012. Leah loved the feeling of being in costume and the positive effect it had on the people around her. With her past love for all things geek, including superheroes, Leah was enthralled by the cosplay community. Within months, she had built a fanbase online solely based on her dedication to making costumes and having shoots. Callie Cosplay soon became a well known name in the cosplay scene.
She is an official Geek Girl, has been named in the top 100 Sexiest Women Alive for Smart Mark Radio, held the title of "Queen of Cosplay" for many different websites, has a plethora of features and interviews all over the web, and was recently featured on the front page of her hometown newspaper, The Orlando Sentinel. While Callie Cosplay is new to the convention scene, her portfolio consists of over 50 costumed characters, all of which she has diligently crafted and modeled. She broke into the convention scene last July at SuperCon, where she was a featured guest. She guested at Geek Fest last October and debuted new costumes at MegaCon at a booth with cosplayer Rosanna Rocha and comicbook artist Greg Scott Bailey. Along with AltCon, Leah is traveling to California for WonderCon, Phoenix for their ComicCon, and Alama City ComicCon as a guest. She will also be taking the role of Black Widow in September for "A Night in New Orleans: Marvel" sponsored by CosCouture and showcasing many well known and talented cosplayers.
