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 this year marks a decade worth of 3KB performances. 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 the costume contest, Anime Idol, and the Lip Sync Battle to name a few. She will be around all weekend geeking out and hosting panels, so be sure to look for her. And if you are interested in the 3KB, their next full performance will be at Anime Iwai from Nov. 10-12 in Deerfield, Beach.
The 3000 Brigade has been charged with keeping the peace in the Nintendo Universe. Find out what happens as your favorite Smash characters come to life before your eyes and are all wonderfully horrible people. Each show is rated M for Mature and every show is different so you don’t want to miss it! The shows have fight scenes, sexy costumes, colorful language, suggestive dialogue, and so much comedy gold!
