Special Guest

Hi I'm Cosqueenie,
Nice to meet all you lovely gamers and Cosplayers alike. If you want to know a little bit about me, I have been a avid Cosplayer for about 5 years now and still loving every minute of it.

I wear a combination of homemade and bought Cosplays, although as time went by I found simply getting into a costume my favorite part! Cosplay to me is bringing the characters I love to life, and with that bringing smiles to both kids and adults; as I bring there beloved characters to life in the real world!

My favourite cosplay to date is hard to choose as so many of my costumes have made other people happy. One of my favourite’s will always be my Ariel from my little mermaid, that was used for children's parties and Charities to help raise money for that little boy or girl.

Atom Cosplay

Atom Cosplay

Special Guest

Having recently performed alongside Microsoft with his costumes appearing in a recent syndicate video Atom Cosplay will be joining us at the Rapture Gaming Festival. ``I never really knew cosplay existed at first. I made costumes for fancy dress parties and Halloween, and fell backwards into the exciting world of Cosplay in August 2015. I entered my first Masquerade and fell in love. I work mainly with low budget material such as eva foam, expanding foam, cardboard etc, and love to upcycle/recycle any thing into a costume. Since getting the hang of Foam Smithing, I've started adding motors, LEDs and even home made smoke machine into my cosplays. Nowdays I like to go big or go home and was dubbed the ``King of Eccentric Cosplay``.``

Mojo Jones

Mojo Jones

Special Guest

Mojo Jones has been cosplaying and performing nerdlesque since 2012. Her proudest cosplay moment was when herself, Chiquitita Cosplay, Tabitha Lyons and Tasha Cosplay were the first cosplayers to feature on a comic book cover after they recreated the controversial J Scott Campbell Swords of Sorrow cover and were asked to do 3 more original covers for Dynamite.
Mojo recently finished treatment for breast cancer and has been creating pink versions of her cosplay as part of a campaign to raise awareness amongst the cosplay community to check themselves regularly regardless of their age.

Layla Cherry

Special Guest

Mysterious, beautiful and a little bit dangerous, Layla will take you on a journey with her neo nerdlesque style.
She's a burlesque ninja with an addiction to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Don't hand her your Switch, you'll never get it back.
Also don't ask her for help taking down a Thunderjaw. It won't end well.

Mojo Jones

Mojo Jones

Special Guest

Mojo Jones is your hostess with the mostess. Is your mojo working? If it isn't she'll probably ask if you've tried turning it off and on again.
A cosplay and nerdlesque clown who hasn't completed a game since Omikron: The Nomad Soul destroyed what was left of her spirit in the 90s.
She will however kick your butt at Street Fighter. But only if she's playing as Chun-Li.

Miss Kitty Pimms

Miss Kitty Pimms

Special Guest

Tall, awesome, and usually upside down, Miss Kitty Pimms is the
Scarlet Vixens favourite Northerner. What she lacks in grace, she
makes up for in the ability to be sarcastic, fall over, and dangle from
any available object.
Her favourite pony is Fluttershy, and her favourite flavour is blue. She’s a HUGE fan of AGDQ, especially the Castlevania speedruns. She is terrible at Mariokart and doesn’t want to talk about it TVM.
