Erin Hurst

Erin Hurst has been cosplaying for almost 20 years, but don’t call her out on it. It just makes her feel old. As a complete and total drama nerd, she found a way to bring her passion for theater and cosplay together forming the 3000 Brigade, a.k.a. 3KB.

Erin has been writing, directing, and acting in what has become the largest active cosplay performance troupe in the country. The troupe began in 2007 and all the past shows can be viewed on YouTube. She is extremely grateful for her stage manager/costume coordinator Jessica Koesters and technical director JoAnn Minieri.

“Without them, or the amazing cast and crew, the 3KB would not exist. I’m really fortunate to work with not only talented funny people, but amazing costume, and makeup artists,” says Erin.

Erin is excited and honored to be back at METROCON this year and will be a guest judge for Anime Idol and the Lip Sync Battle. She will be around all weekend geeking out and hosting panels, so be sure to look for her.

And if you want to catch her next 3KB show be sure to follow them on Facebook at! But watch out, their shows are rated M for mature for adult language and suggestive dialogue. Every 3KB show is different, so if you have the chance be sure to check them out! The 3KB shows have epic battles, hysterical comedy, and is full of the Smash Bros characters we have all come to know and love and discovered are actually wonderfully horrible people.
