Former Game Informer columnist and current Community Manager for the Tomb Raider franchise over at Crystal Dynamics, cosplayer Meagan Marie, also known as Meagan vanBurkleo or VirtualGirl6654, is popular web celebrity who is known for coming up with some fantastic costumes in the past. This week she tackles Top Cow’s NYPD homicide detective Sara Pezzini, wielder of the supernatural, sentient gauntlet – the Witchblade!
Arguably one of Top Cow’s most popular and widespread franchises, Witchblade has enjoyed success in the form of comic books, a television series, a manga run, an anime series and now even a feature film (still in production). The series follows Sara Pezzini, a tough-as-nails NYPD homicide detective who comes into possession of the Witchblade, a supernatural, sentient artifact with immense destructive and protective powers. The weapon has bonded with various other women throughout history, the most recent being the series’ former co-lead, Danielle Baptiste. Others who have come into contact with the Witchblade include Cleopatra and Joan of Arc.
Sara struggles to hone the awesome powers of the Witchblade and fend off those with a nefarious interest in it, especially entrepreneur Kenneth Irons. She also struggles to maintain a personal life, which of course as you can well imagine, is not particularly easy not that all this supernatural darkness has entered her life!
