Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentDestiny Nickelsen Bio – Smartasses Magazine Destiny Nickelsen (born September 19) is a world renowned cosplayer. Nickelsen was born in Boston, Massachusetts and resides in Manchester, New Hampshire. She speaks fluent French, Italian, German and some Spanish. She is 5’10”. Nickelsen is a former gymnast, who competed at the elite level until age 15.

Nickelsen was taught how to sew by her mother at age six, and thus began costume building and crafting. She has been costuming at comic book conventions since 2003. Nickelsen has been invited to conventions across the United States, Mexico and Canada and has competed in craftsmanship contests, winning various awards at the master level. She makes her own props, costumes & accessories, and aims for costume accuracy above all else. Nickelsen has made over 100 costumes as of 2016. Among her awards are Best In Show (Masters) at the Amazing Arizona Comic Con in 2013, Miss Southern Cospitality 2013, Best Costume at FCBD 2013, and Best In Show at the Boston Comic Con of 2015. Nickelsen is most well-known for her Harley Quinn costume from Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Nickelsen was raised on classic sci-fi movies, anime, and fantasy, and has been gaming her whole life. Aside of cosplay and gaming, she enjoys cooking, and claims that food is one of her passions. Nickelsen also enjoys sculpting, and can play piano, guitar, and bass. She is an avid animal lover who owns cats, a dog, and various reptiles.

Why we think she’s hot:

As ridiculous as it may sound on the surface, in this day and age of social media, the geek revolution, and the seemingly endless truism that only a comic-book based film will draw people to the theater, the wonderful women who partake in the donning of superhero costumery are beginning to make a real statement for female empowerment– and intentional or not, Destiny Nickelsen is at the forefront of it. For Destiny, it is literally in spite of the fact that costume-playing draws legions of riled-up fanboys drooling at the heels of her Mary Marvel boots on why she stands out. To her, it’s all about doing what she loves, as opposed to the over-sexualization that tends to happen with cosplay by default, and Nickelsen uses that notoriety as a springboard to exercise a little outspokenness from time to time, or like Keira Knightley before her, make even more of a statement by occasionally posing without makeup and the magic of Photoshop. So forget about all of that seductive, shiny & colorful spandex. Forget about the eyes, the perfectly arched eyebrows above them, and her amazing, flawless, apple-esque cheekbones below ’em. The real apple, of our eye anyway, is her confidence and insistence on being recognized for anything except being a sex-symbol. All told, it not only makes her one of the best role-models on the planet, to us, it makes her a real superhero, and explains exactly why we would kneel down and kiss the ground she walks upon.
