Meet Solange; a fun-loving Mom from Manaus, Brazil who absolutely loves to dress up. So much so that she assembles all of her own costumes and attends all of her local cosplaying conventions and events!
Also known as Tia Sol, (or "Aunty Sun") Solange's fearlessness and cosplaying talents have earned her an impressive internet following. When BuzzFeed News asked her why she first started, she responded:
"A friend said that I wouldn't have the guts... I chose a character and had the costume made without saying another word."
We highly admire Solange's charisma and go-get-'em attitude, and we're so happy that she has chosen to share her spot-on looks with the world. See them below!

"I don't miss a single event in my city. I'd really like to visit other ones, but have you seen the price of the fares?" - Aunty Sun

"I never thought that I would be well received among the young people, I've made a lot of friends during all of this." - Aunty Sun
