Review for role of Annietime Annie in 42nd Street

"Bernadette Bentley’s bold and brassy Anytime Annie and her three best gal pals (the equally splendid Melanie Mockobey as Phyllis Dale, Deborah Fauerbach as Lorraine Flemming, and Jessica Marie Taylor as Gladys) provide vivacious support, with Ann Myers and Cole Cuomo stealing scenes as songwriting team Maggie Jones and Bert Barry, and Timothy Joshua Hearl’s salt-of-the-earth Pat Denning and Greg Nicholas’ Texas sugar daddy Abner Dillon giving Dorothy two decidedly different romantic options to choose from."

"Bernadette Bentley looks absolutely stunning cosplaying as her genius Wonder Woman / Xena mashup! This combo of two of the most badass warrior ladies of all time just works so well, no one would mess with Wonder Xena that's for sure! ;) "

INSTAGRAM WORTHY COSPLAY

The once underground hobby of cosplay has slowly become mainstream and cons are where cosplayers get to show off all their hard work. While you’ll see some cosplay on the con floor, the real show is outside, where camera crews and instagrammers take photos of all their favorite outfits. Head out of the Anaheim Convention Center lobby into the Grand Plaza and you’ll find a living gallery of cosplayers of all ages. This stunning hand-crafted Xena: Warrior Princess Princess by Bernadette Bentley is just one of the many ways that cosplayers put their own creative spin on their favorite characters."

Check me out on the Espionage Cosplay Crash Pad! 

"With a smile as catching as a melodic tune, Bernadette Bentley sweetens the world of cosplay with flashes of glam and memorable bouts of badassery! Though her satchel of tricks includes everything from voice acting and hosting to dancing and choreographing, we wanted to hear more of her war cry and feature her well known Xena: Warrior Princess cosplay. Step through the portal and join us as we explore more of the magic of costuming!"

Belle of the Battlefield

Tor.com dubbed me the "Belle of the Battlefield" in my Xena Warrior Princess Princess cosplay! I LOVE THAT LINE!!! 

"San Diego Comic-Con always brings out the A++ cosplay, but we especially loved this mashup of our favorite Warrior Princess and the crinolined ballgown stylings of the Princess of Disney. We’re sure actress and director Bernadette Bentley was the Belle of the Battlefield."

Here’s a perfectly fun cosplay mashup ... that combines Xena with Disney. The result is Xena: Disney Warrior Princess. It's being cosplayed by Bernadette Bentley, and it’s simply fantastic. The photo was taken by York In A Box. I’d love to see someone take this concept and turn it into an action-packed animated short.
