ANIMATED LOLA is an Afro-Latina, New York based cosplayer, who has been involved in the cosplay community since 2013.

Animated Lola uses her cosplay platform to promote and highlight diversity within the community. She is a proud page rep for the “CosplayOfColor” instagram account that showcases POC cosplayers, and has chosen to cosplay many traditional and non-traditional POC characters to show the ongoing need for diverse characters throughout the community, and to bring attention the ones that already exist.
