The Cosplay Wiki

Tayla Barter otherwise known as Kinpatsu Cosplay is a cosplayer and artist from Johannesburg, South Africa. She's been cosplaying since October 2012. She's always been a huge fan of gaming and anime as well as art. Cosplay was a way to bring all the things she loved most together in a creative way.

Her name comes from the fact that kinpatsu means "blonde" in japanese which is the colour of her own hair, so in english this translates to blonde cosplay.

She has created cosplays from a variety of genres including anime, games, comics, cartoons, series and films. Many of her cosplays are from the blizzard and league of legends universe.

Tayla is also known for her high speed crafting in the cosplay world, creating a new costume (sometimes 2-3) every single month. In 2017 she created a total of 30 new cosplays.
