The Cosplay Channel Everyone Should Be Watching

NyxRising Industries is a UK based cosplay channel started in 2015 by its founder and creator, Nyx. Since their start, they have gained almost 50K subscribers. That's 50,000 fans that love and support this channel and the amazing content they put out.

I found NyxRising one day, scrolling on YouTube looking for something to watch and I have been a loving fan ever since. Their cosplay content is television series-worthy and their normal, YouTube channel content is hilarious. But the sad thing is that not many people know about them. They are so underrated and deserve more.

Before I introduce their wide array of content material, I first must introduce the NyxRising team. Along with Nyx is Bee, Sasha, Chase, and Jack. Each member brings a unique contribution to the NyxRising team. Whether it be Nyx's writing, Bee and Sasha's amazing acting, Chase's videography, or Jack's interesting take on history (I will gush about that in a bit), each member is incredible and talented. They not only work amazingly together but also create content of their own on their personal channels.

NyxRising Industries has so much content spanning across many different fandoms. Everyone should be able to find something they enjoy. Here are just a few of their series and videos.

For fans of Harry Potter


This is personally my favorite category of their's and the videos that made me a fan. They have plenty of Harry Potter content, including series and skits. Linked below are the first episodes to their series.

The Real Malfoys - a reality show-type series following the Malfoy family in the aftermath of the war

Marauders: Sonorus - a live radio show featuring the Marauders (James, Sirius, Remus, and Peter) during their time at Hogwarts (This is now 2 seasons!)

The Growing Pains of Harry Potter - a more serious series from NyxRising following Harry and his friends as they enter the adult world following the war and forgive some old rivals

The Dark Lord Wears Prada - a Harry Potter parody following Regulus Black and his (fashionable) shenanigans with the Dark Lord and other Death Eaters

Gone - A Marauders Music Video - this video is my absolute favorite, and while it's not part of a series, it's just as amazing on its own. I'll let you experience it for yourselves, but I would be lying if I didn't watch this 20 times and cry each time

For fans of Dragon Age


I did not know what Dragon Age even was before NyxRising, and I still love this series. That is the beauty of NyxRising; they produce content that can be enjoyed by all, even if you're not necessarily a fan of it.

Kirkwall Coffee is a Modern Coffee Shop Dragon Age AU (that's "alternate universe" for those who don't know) that follows Merrill, Garrett and Carver Hawke, and Fenris as they try to run a coffee shop (and keep it open).

For fans of Welcome to Night Vale


NyxRising features 2 WTNV universe series! The first is Night Vale Presents which follows Cecil and Carlos in Night Vale (2 seasons). Then they have Night Vale Presents: A Week with Strexcorp that follows Night Vale's evil doppelgangers in Desert Bluffs. Are you following, because I hope you are. These two series are both connected, as NyxRising has stated that the Strexcorp series acts as a bridge between episodes 4 and 5 of the original Night Vale Presents series.

For fans of Until Dawn


The Blackwood Files is a found-footage series based off of the video game Until Dawn. This series is amazing, well-written, and filled with a talented cast who executed this series so well. However, I suggest you don't watch at night, because there are definitely some scary bits.

For fans of Detroit: Become Human


I have yet to play this game myself, but that doesn't stop me from absolutely loving the content made! This video playlist features all of NyxRising's D:BH content, including hilarious skits, amazing makeup tutorials, and my personal favorite, their "This Is Gospel" Connor CMV (cosplay music video). The video gives me chills, and yes, I have seen it 15 times and made all of my friends watch it with me.

For fans of Marvel


Avengers: Intermission is a series of short parodies featuring, you guessed it, the Avengers! These videos are hilarious, and my favorites are the Jimmy Kimmel parodies where they read out "mean tweets" to the Avengers. Plus, their makeup and costumes are amazing. Jack's Doctor Strange? Benedict Cumberbatch is quaking!

For fans of Dream Daddy


Ah, yes, Dream Daddy. The Dad Dating Simulation found on Steam. NyxRising has a few playlists featuring these hot dad characters. One features skits, such as Dad Jokes and Parenting Tag parodies. Tales from the Cul-De-Sac is another series that tells of some local spooky stories. And another spooky series, On the Hunt, which is about Lucien, Damien's son, going with Robert to hunt some Cryptids. This may all seem crazy out of context, but trust me when I say, it's 10/10.

For fans of History


You may be thinking, "History? How can a cosplay channel make videos about history? You can't cosplay history! History is boring!" and I'm here to tell you, you're wrong! Jack has taken historical events or time periods and made them funny, and well, rather silly. History: It's All A Little Bit Silly is a NyxRising original series featuring topics such as the Salem Witch Trials or WWI and turned them into fun and informational videos. My favorite is the one about the Roman Empire (Imperial Guards!) It may be a 48-minute episode, but I've watched it a million times now to the point where I can quote it. I've made my best friend loathe me for making her watch it a bunch of times as well. Sometimes, when I need a pick-me-up, I just watch the Emperor Caligula section over and over again. It's that good!

Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg for what NyxRising has to offer, but I wanted to show how diverse their audience is. They have something for everyone! They also make videos on Life Is Strange, Let's Play videos, where they stream themselves playing video games like Outlast and many more, and usual YouTube video-type videos, like Challenge Videos and Unboxings. I implore you to check out their channel, their social media accounts, and their personal channels. Their ideas are so unique and creative, such as their new series for Les Mis fans, Barricade Boys, and they deserve all of the positive attention and love!

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

If 'Hockey Is For Everyone,' Why Is Matt Dumba So Alone In Fighting For Racial Equality In The NHL?

If the NHL is using #WeSkateForEquality, why is Dumba alone in the fight for equality?

On Saturday, August 1, 2020, the National Hockey League resumed play for the first time since March 12, 2020. The season was paused due to the growing coronavirus (COVID-19) spread and a concern for the players contacting the virus and spreading it through the League.

I Recommend This $85 POC-Founded Hair Brush To Everyone — Here's Why It's Worth EVERY Penny

It replaces nearly three steps in my hair routine.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

These movies are always there for us when we need them.


Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
