Wild Garden Cosplay is a cosplay group comprised of Teca and Lilacwire who met twelve years ago while in costume and have been friends in and out of the hobby ever since. They've competed with and against each other from Anime Expo to Costume Con, always maintaining a strong friendship. Lilacwire cracks the puns and Teca does her best to ignore them. Together they formed Wild Garden Cosplay to compete in the World Cosplay Summit in 2013 and 2014, coming in as Runner-Up to Team USA 2013.
Robert Axelrod has carved a career in show business that runs the gamut. Born and raised in New York City, he did commercials and theater as a child and teen, eventually ending up in the Soho Avant-garde Theater scene in a show called “Little Trips”, then Off-Broadway in a play called “The Destroyers”. Mr. Axelrod is also a busy voice over artist. He is the voice of Lord Zedd and Finster on the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers”. The Lord Zedd voice is one of the most recognizable character voices around. He voiced Armadillomon and Wizardmon on “Digimon”, Microchip, The Punisher’s sidekick, on “Spiderman”, Rico on “Robotech”, and has voiced countless Anime features including “Akira”, “The Big O”, “Cowboy Bebop”, “Brain Scratch”, et al. As Lord Zedd, he starred in both the first Power Rangers feature film and the wildly popular live show that toured the country.
