The Magic community has attracted many talented cosplayers, and ChannelFireball is proud to feature a roster of cosplayers at our Grand Prix events.
Referred to as the “Godmother of Magic cosplay,” Christine’s spark ignited back at Worlds 2011 when she planeswalked onto the scene as Elspeth. Christine has been passionately cosplaying since 2004 and has created over 200 cosplays, including over 30 Magic cosplays! Even though she is not much of a cosplay competitor, she does have a few awards under her belt. Notably, she was the fan favorite winner of the 2013 “Ignite Your Spark” contest. She loves to create and share her passion via her hobby. If she’s not playing video games or working on her current cosplay, you can always snag her for a game of Commander!
Ashlen has been playing Magic: The Gathering since 2010. She started with Duels of the Planewalkers, and soon after, she purchased a Future Sight Fat Pack to start off her paper collection. Since then, she’s traveled across the USA, competing and cosplaying at Grand Prix events. When she’s not attending events and cosplaying, she is either streaming Magic on her Twitch channel or playing Commander/Modern with friends at her local game store (Her favorite deck is R/G Tron).
