Guest Announcement: Mica Burton

micaMica Burton has been cosplaying since early 2007, learning how to sew from her grandmother before she discovered that dressing up as her favorite characters could be a hobby. But before conventions were even on her radar, she had been watching anime and playing video games for as long as she can remember—even sporting head-to-toe Tekken merchandise at age 4 and gaming as soon as she could hold a controller.

Her love of all things nerdy landed her a job with the popular internet entertainment company Rooster Teeth as a host for their gaming news channel and also reoccurring on screen talent, giving her the opportunity to be in front of the camera while developing her cosplay and modelling skills with the support of her coworkers and friends. Now, she is a host working for Blizzard Entertainment, covering and commentating on the Overwatch League, Overwatch Contenders, Blizzcon, and the Overwatch World Cup.

Her enthusiasm for gaming and BFA degree in acting also helped her land her first voice acting roll as Vahni in the game “100 ft Robot Golf”, and she continues to pursue her acting career in Los Angeles. As a professional cosplayer as well as a model, she continues to spread the love of all things nerdy across the internet, having the opportunity to travel to conventions all across the world, sharing her love of cosplay with fans and fellow artists—whether it be guesting or attending for fun. Through speaking at conventions and continuing to strengthen her craft, Mica hopes to bring more diversity, acceptance, and positivity to the cosplay community, knowing that cosplay is where some of the greatest familial bonds can be formed.”
