Norwescon III Supplemental


So as promised, here is the most beautiful cosplayer at Norwescon.

This is Torrey Stenmark. I’ve somehow become a fan along the way. Here she is as Captain Marvel.

I was surprised she was able to make the costume so quickly after the Captain Marvel movie. She was on a panel in which she spoke quite conversationally about the Marvel Universe and costuming, despite being in such a heavy-duty outfit.

The next day, I saw a woman in an intriguing costume, complete with helmet. I asked if I could take a picture, and she immediately went into a pose.


Later, I realized they’re the SAME PERSON. It was Torrey again. This happened to me last year, when I took pictures of her as Power Girl, and I didn’t recognize her.


So I knew ahead of time she was going to appear as Galadriel this year. Still, I was stunned when she debuted.



She knows how to pose with gestures appropriate for the character.



This view from the back shows the elaborate work involved. Keep in mind, she makes the costumes herself.


Here she is, breaking character to show off her 1st Place award. And no one can deny she earned it.
