    Jamin Fite is a cosplay designer famous for making metal bikinis in the style of Star Wars’ Princess Leia, under the name Leia’s Metal Bikini. He’s also famous, as reported in a Bleeding Cool article from 2016, for being a Holocaust denier. And just as a Supergirl cosplayer attending a white supremacist march in Charlottesville being the big story on Bleeding Cool this week, it seems that Fite has been up to his old tricks again.

    A tweet containing screenshots of Fite’s Facebook page seems to show Fite having changed the banner on his personal Facebook page to a photo of that same white supremacist and neo-Nazi march. Fite writes, “Hail my People. Hail my Leader. Hail Victory!” in the caption to the photo.

    Alisa Norris talks

    DC Comics

    Yesterday, Bleeding Cool featured a story about the cosplayer and adult entertainer Alisa Norris, who attended the white nationalist Charlottesville rally last week with her husband, Jonathon Norris. There seemed to be a very strong disconnect between the characters she portrayed and her relationship with fans, friends, co-workers, and the rest, and this set of beliefs. And people had started to notice.

    Norris did not want to talk about the issue when I first spoke to her at the time, but after publication, she agreed to talk to Bleeding Cool. But first she wanted to put a few things straight. She told me,

    “First off, it was not a “march”, it was a rally to protest the Monument removal by the racist vice mayor. I meant I was not at the torch march the night before. That video is after the permitted assembly was shut down and we had to walk back to our cars a few miles away.”

    (excerpt)

    She told me she hadn’t spoken to George Perez in years, but didn’t want to cause him pain or strife, especially knowing his health issues.






    Cosplayer who inspired George Perez's Supergirl was part of the Charlottesville White Nationalist rally

    Cosplayer Alisa Norris (formerly Farrington, aka AlisaKiss), who inspired George Perez's New 52 Supergirl, was part of the Charlottesville White Nationalist rally. The march ended in violence and resulted in the death of counter-protester Heather Heyer when James Allen Fields Jr. drove his car, at full speed, into a crowd of protesters.

    According to bleedingcool.com, there's video footage of Alisa, holding hands with her husband Jonathon Norris, as he chant, "Jews will not replace us."

    mtv.com removed all of her photos online, but kept the interview about how her online photos were used in George Perez's art (such as her facial features and body type). As a thank you, Perez sent Alisa the original cover art of Supergirl #8.




    Supergirl's Identity Revealed! An Interview With George Perez's Model For Supergirl #8 and 9

    Atlanta-based cosplay enthusiast Alisa Farrington has a boatload of secret identities, Wonder Woman, Black Cat and even Ariel from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” among them. Yet it’s her Supergirl costume that’s been luring fans and con paparazzi faster than a flurry of speeding bullets.

    Even a high profile friend and fan found inspiration in her take on Kara Zor-El. Comics legend George Pérez decided to use Farrington’s likeness as his inspiration for the title character in Supergirl #8, part of Supergirl’s New 52 incarnation.
