Jennifer Rose (Cosplayer•Designer•Pin-Up Model): For as long as she can remember, Jennifer Rose has explored her interest in art, design and other creative outlets. An avid seamstress since her first high school sewing class, she followed that up by adding an Illustration degree and fashion coursework at Fashion Institute of Technology to her utility belt. She managed to keep busy with various art fashion and costume projects throughout the years until she entered the world of Cosplay proper in 2005.
That was the year Jennifer joined the Star Wars charity costume communities of the 501st and Rebel Legion. But that was just the tip of the iceberg. To date, Jennifer has found inspiration in TV shows, cartoons, films, literature and comic books. Particularly, as an enthusiast of vintage fashion, hair, makeup and culture, she loves to create costumes that are reproductions of vintage costumes or costumes that have a vintage flavor to them. By far her favorite of these is her 1966 television version Batgirl which was her “dream costume” from her childhood days.
Jennifer’s likeness has been used in several promo spots and video / interview segments promoting various pop culture conventions. She has also been featured on the cover of the book, The Overstreet Guide To Cosplay (by Gemstone Publishing).
Recently, Jennifer has been known for her cosplay and pin up style photoshoots and is a frequent requested guest at conventions on the eastern seaboard. With her interviews by numerous cosplay related publications in print and online, and photoshoots by celebrity photographer Corey Hayes, Pin-Up photographer Marlene Botta, and others, Jennifer Rose has made quite a name for herself within the cosplay community. Her name also bring attention to her custom line of pop culture and “geek related” clothing and designs that can be seen throughout her convention stops. When she is not working on costumes, attending conventions or creating her crafts, Jennifer keeps busy by sewing vintage inspired clothing, reading, hula hooping, and attending vintage enthusiast events.
