Dhareza is a Creative Director for an NYC marketing agency by day, and by night he is still a Creative Director at the agency. But when he has spare time, the superhero tights come on. Dhareza has cosplayed for over 6 years and specializes in armor and props using EVA foam, Worbla, and any other materials he can get his hands on.

Dhareza is the winner of SYFY’s Cosplay Melee series, and he has been featured in multiple online and physical publications, including Cosplay Culture Magazine, NBC, Mashable, and Gizmodo. He also enjoys hosting cosplay panels and does commission requests and has created over 50 cosplay armor and accessories for a growing number of clients.

When not cosplaying or working, Dhareza is an avid photographer, and his work has been published in various cosplay publications such as iCosplay Magazine, Cosplay Culture Magazine, and Otaku USA.

Dhareza will appear on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. He will host free autograph and photo op sessions each day. He will appear as part of Anime NYC’s Masquerade and Official After Party and select additional panels. His full schedule will appear here closer to Anime NYC.
