Irina Meier is a well-known cosplayer. Numerous pictures of her cosplays cover her Instagram page, from Game of Thrones‘s Margaery Tyrell to The Witcher‘s Triss Merigold.

Marty Cipher loves cosplays, and she’s terrific at them. It only takes one quick look at her Instagram page to see how talented she is at her craft. From Scarlet Witch to Starfire, Marty’s gift immediately pop out. However, her Harley Quinn inevitably takes center stage.
