Cosplayer Jay Justice
Jay Justice is a cosplayer, actress, editor, and activist. She has been a fixture at comic and gaming conventions since 2009, with over 80 handmade and award-winning costumes under her belt. Her work has been featured in Marvel Comics, and she has been the inspiration for new queer characters in DC Comics and Boom Studios. Jay is a frequent speaker at public libraries across the country on the topics of comics, diversity in media and costuming, with interactive workshops to teach others the craft. Jay is an outspoken LGBTQIA+ and disability advocate dedicated to making fandom and convention spaces safe, welcoming and inclusive for everyone. When she’s not busy working on costumes or trying to save the world, Jay lives in New York City, working on her first comic book script in between editing comics and playing far too many video games.
