Fantail Cosplay

Special Guest

Cosplayer down to the core, Silantre has been dedicated to making cosplays since 2005. She has proven her crafting skills with the creation of many different award winning costumes, ranging from armour to fursuits. She's a firm believer that anything drawn on paper can be made into a costume, whether it be from cardboard and duct tape or with the latest materials and gadgets!

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.

Crafty Ninja Cosplay

Crafty Ninja Cosplay

Special Guest

CraftyNinja has been cosplaying for about three years and deals with masked cosplay. Be it fabric, foam or fur, each costume is based on how much detail she can replicate and as such has several competition wins under her belt. A learner at heart, CraftyNinja is always looking to learn new techniques; work with new fabrics and most of all meet and make new friends.
