Cosplay Day 2018, will take place on Saturday July, 14th. With meeting in ECS 123. For those of you that are familiar with Tsukino-Con’s use of the space, this is the smaller theatre in ECS.
Start at 10am
Photographers will come in and out of the room to gather models as they want to shoot. Currently no events are planned during the day, but we are working to change this.
Nyao-Chan is a Vancouver based cosplayer that has been in love with the hobby ever since she first went to Anime Revolution and worked at their maid cafe! She has been cosplaying since 2014 and has slowly built up different skills in the areas of sewing and armor making. Her favourite part of making cosplay is EVA foam armour crafting! Her goal with every cosplay is to not only dress like the character, but to breathe life into them and have as much fun as possible while being them!
Mimi Reaves is a professional seamstress and an experienced cosplayer. She has always loved to play dress up, so it was only natural she fell in love with cosplay in 2007, debuting her take on Gaz from Invader Zim. Since then she has created numerous costumes such as Babydoll from Sucker Punch, Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones, several Disney princesses, and one of her personal favorites, Violet Baudelaire from A Series of Unfortunate Events. Mimi has completed two years of costuming education at Capilano University and is currently sewing for film and television. She is passionate about bringing her favorite characters to life and inspiring others.
Back for our second year at Tsukino-Con, we are the Cosplay Repair Station—a Washington State based costume repair group who love to make the cosplay community just a little better for everyone. We know how stressful it is to have a cosplay malfunction or something break at the wrong time during a con, so we are here to help! We travel to the Pacific Northwest and nearby Canadian cons year round with our trained volunteer staff to help with sewing, wig, prop, glue, and general cosplay repairs! From helping with ripped seams to knotted Miku wigs to broken Mercy halos, we’re there to help. We also enjoy hosting panels on cosplaying and costuming techniques—keep an eye out for panels by our staff.
Our goal is to not only make repairs accessible (and free!) at conventions, but also educate and create a space where everyone is having a great time cosplaying! If you need a quick repair or need some advice, swing by the Cosplay Repair Station, and be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for the latest updates as well as plenty of tips and tricks! We hope to help make your con experience even better!
Karameru has been in the Toronto cosplay community since 2010, cosplaying well-loved characters from the Fate series as well as many others from various games and anime series. Known to be friendly and “loves-to- selfie-with- everyone” at cons, her favourite cosplay characters are cool, strong and independent. A 3D Artist by day, she enjoys doing cosplay photography in her spare time.
This will be her first time at Tsukino con and first time visiting Victoria, BC!
