Who are Laura and Barry Ash?

Laura and Barry Ash, a married duo, have made a significant impact in the cosplay world since their start in March 2022.

They actively support charities like The Pilgrims Hospice, Demelza House, Tree of Hope, and Great Ormond Street, using their popularity to raise funds and awareness.

Their journey in cosplay, though brief, has already seen remarkable achievements. They’ve appeared on Channel 4 TV, attended Warner Bros. movie events, and hosted a successful panel at MCM London, inspiring many to embrace the joy of cosplay.

Our Mission ❤️

In a world where so much has been taken from so many in the past few years, our mission is to be a beacon of hope and joy, demonstrating that even in the face of adversity, we can still foster unity and kindness. Our journey began in the wake of the global lockdown, and ever since, our focus has remained steadfast on ‘giving back.’ 

We believe in creating a community that stands together, extends helping hands, and emboldens each other to tackle life’s challenges. Our efforts are guided by two powerful mantras: #SmileAndPassItOn and #IfYouCanHelpSomeoneYouShould. These are not just hashtags; they represent our commitment to foster a culture of benevolence and joy.

Motivated by this success, Laura and Barry have since dedicated themselves to ‘giving back’ through their growing influence in the cosplay community. They believe firmly in the principle of #IfYouCanHelpSomeoneYouShould. One of their significant achievements was hosting the panel “The Confidence To Cosplay” at MCM Comic Con London, which inspired many attendees to embrace the joys of cosplay.

Today, Laura and Barry’s story is more than just about cosplay; it’s about community, resilience, and using one’s passions to make a difference. Their legacy is not only in their remarkable portrayal of characters but also in their commitment to spreading kindness and support through their work. They invite everyone to join them in this journey, combining the joy of cosplay with the art of giving back.

Our Story

Laura and Barry Ash, known as the dynamic superhero duo, trace their passion for superheroes back to childhood. As kids, they were inspired by characters like Fire Star and Ice Man, setting the stage for a lifelong love of heroics. Their journey into cosplay, however, truly began under the encouragement of Paul Blakeborough, a friend and owner of Get Ready Comics. Recognizing their natural talent for bringing characters to life, he urged them to pursue cosplay more seriously.

A poignant moment in 2021 marked a turning point for Laura and Barry. The loss of Barry’s mother to pancreatic cancer deeply affected them. She knew of their cosplay plans and the charitable cause behind it, although she never saw them in costume. To honor her memory and the care provided by The Pilgrims Hospice during her final days, the couple embarked on their first charity mission, “Superman’s Beard Shave”. This event, held at Get Ready Comics and supported by Shayne Kingham, raised an impressive £4500.
