Mica Burton

Mica Burton has been cosplaying since early 2007, learning how to sew from her grandmother before she discovered that dressing up as her favorite characters could be a hobby. But before conventions were even on her radar, she had been watching anime and playing video games for as long as she can remember—even sporting head-to-toe Tekken merchandise at age 4 and gaming as soon as she could hold a controller.

Her love of all things nerdy and her BFA in acting from the University of Michigan landed her a job with the popular internet entertainment company Rooster Teeth as a host for their gaming news channel and also reoccurring on screen talent, giving her the opportunity to be in front of the camera while developing her cosplay skills with the support of her coworkers and friends. Now, she is a host working for Blizzard Entertainment, covering and commentating on Overwatch Contenders and Overwatch World Cup.

Being a professional cosplayer as well as a host, she continues to spread the love of all things nerdy across the internet, having the opportunity to travel to conventions all across the world, sharing her love of cosplay with fans and fellow artists—whether it be guesting or attending for fun. Through speaking at conventions and continuing to strengthen her craft, Mica hopes to bring more diversity, acceptance, and positivity to the cosplay community, knowing that cosplay is where some of the greatest familial bonds can be formed.

Xavier Woods

It’s a New Day, yes it is! And, without a doubt, Xavier Woods is a huge part of it.

A dynamic Superstar with plenty of brains—he's currently earning his Ph.D. in educational psychology in addition to his two bachelor's degrees in psychology and philosophy and a master's in psychology—Woods is far more intelligent than his off-key trombone bleating may let on. He's damn good in the ring, too, snatching multiple WWE Tag Team Championships alongside his New Day crew of Big E and Kofi Kingston.

Legit pop culture phenoms, The New Day proved their place in sports-entertainment history by setting the record for the longest Tag Team Championship reign in WWE history. They also released their own Booty-O’s cereal, hosted WrestleMania and brought some much-needed magic and wonder back to WWE.

In between earning degrees and titles, Woods has also found the time to host his own YouTube gaming channel, UpUpDownDown. No doubt, Woods and his New Day cohorts have seized their moment, and when Xavier Woods steps inside the ring, you can be sure that his opponents are about to be schooled. .
