He-Man.Org's first official "Cosplayer of the Month" is Ashley Regimbal-Kung. Ashley makes a spectacular Shower Power Catra! Inspired by the original Princess of Power action figure, she designed the costume and accessories herself.
"She-Ra: Princess of Power is this ever-present, though seldom entirely understood, pink whirlwind of strong heroines and villains with endearingly contrived, theme-based costumes. Naturally, what I really latched onto was the toys. As a child, the prize of my collection was Shower Power Catra. Consequently, as an adult, I set out to re-create what I remembered of her for a cosplay. This proved difficult, for as we all know, children lose things. When I finally set to the task of creating this icon of my childhood I had one thing in mind: the version of this toy as she existed in my memory/collection (which may or may not have been anything close to her original form). This included the mask from original Catra, a shield, and a doll (without a head). For those few who saw the original incarnation of this costume this may explain why I left out such things as the water pistol, and the sword. The simple answer is that for me these things weren’t as important as the spots on the tights, or the beading on the bodice. Call it senseless nostalgia if you like; it’s a fair assessment... xoxo... Ashley"
