A Rose By Another Name: Megan Lara–Artist, Illustrator, and Rose Tyler Cosplayer Extraordinaire


I am a big Megan Lara fan. I first came across her work in Facebook Doctor Who forums, where her t-shirt designs can be spotted on a regular basis. So, I “liked” her page on FB, as well and discovered that she designs all manner of Sci Fi/Fantasy-themed t-shirts and posters and has done work on major graphic novels. I personally own her Amy Pond/Girl Who Waited tattoo art style Doctor Who t-shirt and plan on purchasing some more. You can check out her t-shirt designs at Redbubble.

And if all that talent weren’t’ enough, she is a virtuoso in cosplay.  Through a freak of genetics, some skillful makeup application, and an arsenal of blonde wigs, she is one of the most convincing Rose Tyler cosplayers I have ever seen. Okay, she has light eyes and Piper’s are brown, but in some of her photos, I defy you to tell the difference between her and Billie. It’s freaky and great fun to watch. You too can follow her on her Facebook page,
