FAMOUS ARTIST Kerri Carter Beasley

Kerri Carter Beasley is a costume artist specializing in “cosplay” – recreations of the designs of characters from comic books, film, anime, video games, and other media.

She has won awards for her costuming work nationwide and has been a featured guest at comic book and media conventions, where she teaches workshops and judges costume competitions. Her work has been featured in various local and international publications including Marvel Comics, Refinery29, South Florida Sun-Sentinel, and Comics Alliance.
