Azariah Cosplay (Kayla Charban)
Born and raised in Thunder Bay, Kayla Charban started her career as Azariah Cosplay in the summer of 2015 after spending almost a whole year hand sewing a set of nightingale armour from Skyrim. Over the years Azariah would learn various techniques such as leather working, sewing, worbla, foam and clay sculpting, pattern making, painting, and much more to create a variety of cosplays and original characters.
In 2016 Azariah had the opportunity to guest and judge at her first conventions and, due to the popularity of her Super Sonico cosplay, she became the first cover model for Curvy Curvy Cosplayers, a body positive cosplay feature page. Azariah would continue to travel across North America judging various cosplay contests until the fall of 2018 with the sudden passing of her partner. Cosplay became a way for Azariah to express herself as she continued to push forward.
Recently Azariah has started to share her love of videogames on Twitch under the username KayCharChar and she uses her platform to raise awareness about mental health issues, especially in Northern Ontario.
