As our readers may or may not know, Comic Booked loves the art of cosplay. We have multiple cosplay music videos on our YouTube channel and tons of articles all about creating and promoting different costumes/cosplayers! One of our personal favorites is the raptor queen herself, Nicole Marie Jean. Personally, she’s my favorite cosplayer EVER, but of course…my opinion is a little biased. So check out the video to get a taste of some of her amazing self made costumes and then scroll down for the official description from her Facebook! That way, we can all learn a little bit more about the legendary Nicole Marie Jean.

“Nicole Marie Jean is a cosplayer, artist, sculptor and designer from Boston, Massachusetts. Nicole began her journey into the cosplay and convention world in 2011. It was the previously year that she discovered what cosplay was. Nicole fell in love with the idea of being able to combine her love of comics and art to bring her favorite characters to life. During the past three years she has traveled around the country for numerous events and conventions as both an attendee and a guest. She has judged a number of contests and been a part of many panels. Nicole has won numerous awards for her costumes both at conventions and online.
Nicole has created more than 50 costumes in the past two years and all are inspired by her favorite characters from comics, movies, books, video games and soon animes. Nicole is most well known for her take on Bane from the Dark Knight Rises film, which has given her the nickname throughout the cosplay community as “Lady Bane.”
When Nicole isn’t creating or debuting new costumes, she sculpts and makes items for her online store. She hopes to continue this journey for many years to come while meeting new people, teaching and inspiring others, entertaining those who follow her work and becoming better at her craft along the way.”
