Cosplayer Alex Drastal, who has become a hit sensation with his “Hands of Rivia” booth, spoke to us at LA Comic Con 2021 about what influenced him into becoming a cosplayer, advice for new cosplayers and much more.
Alex Drastal is well known as a cosplayer who portrays The Witcher, but he also dons a number of other costumes, from his very first cosplay of Rorschach from Watchmen to his own Dungeons and Dragons character to his upcoming Silver Age version of All Might from My Hero Academia. As a certified massage therapist and neuromuscular massage therapist, he recently combined this with cosplay to create the “Hands of Rivia” booth as he performs massaged in cosplay at conventions.
