HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—Adult entertainment star Tanya Tate is showcased on the September cover of AVN magazine. An avid cosplayer (costume player), Tate is a central part of an article titled "Cashing In On Cosplay." Noted photographer Chris King captured Tanya's heroic playfulness for the cover. The multi-award-winning performer is seen in one of her own costumes, which pop-culture enthusiasts and fans of 1980s animation will easily recognize.

“When pleasure products editor Sherri L. Shaulis was doing research for her article on cosplay, one performer came to mind immediately: Tanya Tate,” said AVN editor-in-chief Sharan Street. “We knew of Tanya’s enthusiasm for costumes and her efforts at reaching out to comic book fans in addition to lovers of adult entertainment, and we thought she'd be not only the perfect person to interview for the article, but also a sexy and appropriate cover model for the story. AVN would like to thank Tanya for participating in the issue and making it that much more fun.”

“Being featured on the cover of AVN magazine is truly an honor," said Tanya. "Not only that, but for it to be based on one of my favorite hobbies is incredible. I'm very grateful and pleased."

In the AVN magazine article, Tate talks about her fascination with the geek genre, and how she came to take part in it and create her popular cosplay website, JustaLottaTanya.com. Tanya has organically built up a following in geek circles as a superhero cosplayer. Several of genre related websites have featured the British adult star, including Comic Impact (Cosplay Girl of the Month), Critiques 4 Geeks (Geek Babe of the Month), Comics Ninja (Cosplay Babe of the Month) and Panels on Pages (Fan Girl of the Month).

Tate also has received mainstream press, with photos of her seen on Life.com, GettyImages.com, KTLA.com, OCRegister.com and more.

Her superhero website JustaLottaTanya.com was launched in March 2011. Since then, she has branched out to doing geek-centric videos which include action figure and comic book reviews, unboxing Blu-rays, and comic convention coverage.
