nastassia Bear is not what you would call average - she is a model, fire breather, cosplayer, and burlesque performer. Using her knowledge of performance art, she has been able to successfully incorporate it into her shoots, creating photographs unlike anything you may have seen before. She spends a significant amount of time creating her cosplays, however, which take a remarkable amount of time as well as craftsmanship. For Bear, they are her passion, as she sees it, it is a fun way to escape into a fantasy world and become someone you are not. She also believes pulling the costumes together is a fantastic way to express yourself through a character you relate to or admire. No matter what the reason, she believes that everyone could have fun dressing up as their favorite character for a day. KULTUR MAGAZINE | JUNE 2014
