Countdown To Grand Prix Richmond: 3 Days Out — Cosplayers!

Cosplayers add fun to any Grand Prix! In today’s Countdown, Cedric Phillips introduces you to one who will be SCG’s official guest at GP Richmond!

Welcome back to the Grand Prix Richmond countdown blog! Yesterday, I introduced you to the rest of our fantastic artists who will be joining our Guest of Honor, John Avon, in our Artists Alley. From Rob Alexander to Dan Frazier to Clint Cearley, Grand Prix Richmond will be filled with some of Magic’s most skilled artisans happy to sign cards for you all weekend long.

But artists aren’t the only special guests who will be attending Grand Prix Richmond. We’ll also be joined by those who bring some of your favorite cards to life – cosplayers! And for Grand Prix Richmond, we have one of the very best as our official guest.

Vanessa Martin

Vanessa Martin is one of the “new notables” of Magic: The Gathering cosplay. Based in Virginia, she came to prominence with her take on Nahiri, the Harbinger. Commemorate your Grand Prix Richmond experience by taking a picture with her!
