Queen City Black Comix Day Participant: Matt “Sebastain” Hexx

received_1323501671116745Cincinnati cosplayer Matt “Sebastian” Hexx will attend Queen City Black Comix Day on Aug. 11!

Matt started cosplaying strictly for fun back in 2012 and has steadily built a platform to showcase the many ways that cosplay is for everyone. A big advocate of race and gender bending characters, Matt believes any gender, race, size and shape can cosplay whoever and whatever they want.
When he isn’t attending conventions, he cosplays for kids at the local children’s hospital as well as the Ronald McDonald House, and for events and parties. Matt hands also wrestled for 14 years, which adds to his arsenal of awesome.
Be sure to stop by his table!
Queen City Black Comix Day, Aug. 11, 1 to 5 p.m., Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County, 6233 Montgomery Rd., Pleasant Ridge (Cincinnati, OH 45213).
