Zeus messed with the wrong dryad the day he chased after Ash. After fighting him off, Ash added insult to injury and stole some of his lightning in hopes of teaching him a lesson. Unfortunately, it didn’t work as she had planned. Enraged by the ubiquity of these behaviors, Ash took up her trident, her sword, and her newfound lightning magic to protect when possible and avenge when necessary. She was granted immortality independent of her tree by the goddess Artemis and spent the next several thousand years serving out vigilante justice on her own before she found the Sucker Punched team. Grateful for the chance to work alongside like-minded warriors, Ash joined the team and has been fighting besides them ever since.
About the Model
Orisen Cosplay is the secret identity of DC area freelancer Alexa Duimstra. When she’s not modeling her creations herself, you can find her working as a costume designer, costume technician, illustrator, or as a teacher of English to speakers of other languages. She spends half of her free time working on new projects and spends most of the other half daydreaming about the things she’d like to make, with a remaining ten minutes to try to clean up her workspace enough to walk through it without tripping.
Behind the Scenes...
- Ash's dress, headdress, arm guards and belt were all made by Alexa for this character
- The trident and gladius were made by the blacksmiths of Baltimore Knife and Sword
