Tara Azarian

Tara Cosplay (Tara-Nicole Azarian in real life) is the energetic, quirky host of the hit webshow, “Nerdtabulous.” She is known for her unique combination of girl-next-door sex appeal and brains! She is well known in the cosplay community as the Pin-up cosplayer with a cheeky sense of humor. Her Instagram feed always provides a good dose of eye candy and clever puns.

Tara is a strong advocate of the movement: ANYONE can cosplay. As a person with 3 autoimmune diseases, asthma and degenerative arthritis in her back,  she understands the challenges and rewards of being a cosplayer with a disability. She is living proof that cosplay can help transport a person to a place where they feel stronger and more empowered, like the superhero they are portraying. Cosplay has helped her come to peace with living with her disabilities.

At San Diego Comic Con 2018 she was won a Cosplay Creator Award from the SYFY Network for her genderbend Elvis Presley  Cosplay! Receiving this award is one of her favorite cosplay moments!

She’s been a Covergirl for Cosplazine Magazine, Delicious Dolls Magazine Nerdy Girl / Cosplay Issue and the AX Cover of DTLA Magazine. She had an 8 page interview and pictorial in Simply Sxy Magazine, she is in the Team Pin-up 2017 coffee table Holiday book and has been published in Cosplay Culture Magazine. You have seen her on “Let’s Make A Deal”, Nickelodeon’s “Game Shakers”, “Tauntfest”, “Nerd Girls Draw” and “Nerd Talk Live”  but her resume boasts over 70 credits on film & TV.

In addition to cosplay, she’s a well known Indie filmmaker (winner of 5 Telly Awards), model and actress. She has written and directed 7 short films and has played over 150 film festivals, including the prestigious Dances With Films at the TCL Chinese Theaters on Hollywood Blvd.  Tara has worked in TV, Film & commercials since she was 4 years old.
