Asta Young is one of the new stars of Little Women: Dallas — and despite being just 4ft 5in tall is a BIG-time player on the cosplay convention circuit.

Asta is also a painter, using the slogan “small artist, big ideas” on her website where she sells her prints.

And she loves pugs, as well as her average-sized husband Ty Goossen, a web and graphic designer.

But her real passion lies in dressing up. Here are some of her most amazing cosplay creations!

This first one’s pretty easy to identify. Yup, Lara Croft from Tomb Raider! She’s even got the pose — and the smoking guns.

Sometimes Asta also likes do do cosplay with her pugs. Here’s one of her and one of them both dressed up as Ewoks from Star Wars.

Yoda Asta is. Strong the force with her seems.

2016 was the year Pokemon came back with a vengeance thanks to Pokemon Go. And Asta didn’t miss a beat, dressing up as her favorite Pokemon — Squirtle!

Here she is as Tinkerbell — although a version that you wouldn’t want to mess with. Because as well, as a bag of Pixie Dust, she’s also armed to the hilt.

Warcraft has so many good options for cosplay. Here’s Asta as half-orc half-draenei Garona Halforcen.

League of Legends is another great source of characters. Here’s Omega Squad Teemo reporting for duty!
