Rynaga

Linda “Rynaga” Tran is a healthcare field worker. Her first cosplay was in 2007 dressing up as a Lolita and an original Naruto character. She leaned back into cosplay in 2019.

Linda started Rynaga Photography in the beginning of 2020, and enjoys capturing the person behind the character. Her experience as a model has helped her understanding and appreciation of the photographer side.

Linda has cosplayed about 25 characters. Her Kitana cosplay was featured on the cover of CosplayZine ‘s May 2021 issue, and her photography appears inside that issue.

Linda has participated in New World Comic’s “Superhero School” as the characters of Jubilee and Jolt. Linda is excited to expand more in her cosplay and cosplay photography.
