Raychul Moore, Cosplay Trailblazer

Cosplay is a fairly new field, a completely 21st century art form. We previously posted about Jessica Nigri, who is a legend in the field, but there are other top talents besides Jessica, and we don't want to slight anyone - well, at least we don't want to slight everyone.

So, here's another top cosplay girl. For those unfamiliar with it, cosplay means dressing up as a video game, fictional comic book, film or animation character. In other words - it is meant to be fun, lighthearted, and full of outlandish embellishments. The best embellishment of all is a pretty girl like Raychul Moore.

Raychul describes herself as a "video game addict." She is big on Youtube, has a Twitter account with tons of followers, Instagram... she is out there getting her name known.

Let's let Raychul explain what she does. Here is what Raychul said in a 2015 interview:
Hi! I’m Raychul! Ummm, let’s see…I’m a gamer; have been since my single-digits. I’m also a cosplayer; which I think was a pretty natural hobby for me to get into due to that first fact about me. And I’m also a YouTuber; where I blend the first two facts into videos and livestreams. Oh, and I also am an avid action figure collector and have an obsession with knee socks. I think that about sums me all up!
