The iPad based pop-culture magazine "Champion!" is celebrating the release of a brand new issue today. I had the honor of posing for the cover in my self-made Scarlet Witch costume from Marvel's "Avengers" series.

Photography was done by radio legend Howard Stern, the location was a beautiful townhouse in Manhattan.

You can download the issue for $0.99 from the App store - it is an interactive magazine designed for the iPad with a ton of great interviews, reviews, galleries & more!

Joining me for the shoot and coverstory on the culture of Cosplay:
Emma Frost (Klytemnestra :iconbeautifully-twisted:
Psylocke (Mostflogged :iconmostflogged:
Captain America

The style of the photoshoot was an Editorial look at the world of cosplay featuring well-known characters from the sci-fi and comic book realms. We had 7 hours in this unique opulent townhouse and produced photos in 4 separate locations within. You can see a video of the behind-the-scenes happenings and photos from the shoot here!

An interview with Champion! producers about the shoot and magazine is here.

Thank you to everyone at Champion!, Howard, Judy Stephens of Mavel and my fellow cosplayers for the great experience!

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little filly called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the pony that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt somepony else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead filly in
