This year at San Diego Comic-Con, an Angel of Death swept through, snagging a coveted spot on more than one Top Ten Cosplays list. Take a look behind the mask of KimChi Cosplay’s Angel of Death!

Linda Nguyen is an incredible artist who looks beyond the surface, into the heart of her characters. Choosing characters that speak to her and challenge her artistic abilities, Nguyen pushes the boundaries of modern cosplay artists, creating looks that are vivid, lifelike, and even hauntingly beautiful. For SDCC this year she took on Hellboy’s own Angel of Death:

Behind the Cosplay

KimChi Cosplay worked with local team Clinton Harn and Alba Zara World capturing behind the scenes details of her creation. They were with her through her trip to SDCC, and created a wonderful video highlighting her creation and cosplay inspiration process. Enjoy!
