Nayely Davila

Carlos de la Garza, the founder of the Slaughter Creek Larp Group, has been larping for two decades under the character name ‘Diego,’ after Diego Velasquez--the famous 16th century Spanish painter. Described by many of the members as a “10 out of a 10” when it comes to sword fighting, Carlos teaches other players how to build their fighting techniques. Carlos adds that he tries to make the game playable by all skill level fighters because without this, “the game would be no fun.”
