Cleary Customs I've made costumes, props and models for many years. I studied special effects and model making at the university of Hertfordshire. They are one of the worlds leading universities in their field working on films like Thor, Star Wars the Force Awakens, Guardians of the Galaxy, Harry Potter and many more. I have taken a year out becoming self employed making props and costumes for cosplay. I have been commissioned to make a few sculptures and tattoo designs. I have also been commissioned by a local Charity Hamilton Davies to design a children's play train and restore a 35+ year old sculpture which now takes pride of place at the Irlam train station seen by hundreds of thousands of people a year. Doing the tattoo designs helped me to create a portfolio which I then used to get an apprenticeship at Candy Scull Tattoo, my dream job which enables me to be flexible enough to continue with my prop and costume business.

Half Pint Harley Born in Florida, Half Pint Harley has been living in Northern Ireland for 10 years. She holds a degree in Biology and a Masters in Teaching, and holds a 2nd degree black belt in JuJitsu. Always a fan of dressing up for Halloween and parties, she entered the cosplay scene in 2012, doing charity events. Since then she has learned a lot about costuming, and goes to as many cons as possible. Widdle Wade Stephen aka Widdle Wade is a voice actor by trade and a costumer and prop maker. He has been actively costuming since 2011, most notably as Deadpool at New York Comic Con, contributing tutorials and tips on his page as well as an air of brevity where needed. He is an activist for equality within the cosplay community, and is a formidable voice within the Irish scene. He deals closely with many charitable organisations such as the Emerald Garrison and Dublin Comic Con. But mostly he is just out to have fun and put a few smiles onto people’s faces.
