    We're pleased to add our 4th member to our cosplay line up - Shonarrrrgh Cosplay Shonarrrrgh is a local cosplayer based in the middle of nowhere but travels to conventions all over the island, mostly being in belfast and Dublin Relatively new and rapidly rising in the scene, every cosplay is an adventure in unknown territory learning as she goes and making every cosplay a challenge. She mostly cosplays characters she finds inspiring and wishes she could be more like from anime and games, but the occasional just for a laugh cosplay appears too. Cosplay has opened so many doors for Shonarrrrgh and she is using it as a way to further improve her skills and to conquer her fears and anxieties. She has found that through cosplay she has met so many wonderful people and with being in costume is finding it easier to socialise and is currently trying to overcome stage fright.

  4. Animeleague is pleased to reveal the lineup of Cosplay Stars for Cardiff Film & Comic Con. Andy Valentine Cosplay Andy Valentine (Valentine Cosplay) is a cosplayer and prop maker based out of Bristol in the UK. With a deep and long-term love of gaming, Andy favours cosplaying video game characters, and most enjoys the darker and twisted villains of various gaming genres. If it involves mud, blood and scars, he's all over it. Professionally, he spends his days making replica props and bringing weapons and costumes from the screen to life. He has a constantly painty, resiny odour, and if something in the house isn't covered in paint, it's probably covered in cat hair. Anna-S Anna is a London based cosplayer with a keen interest in sewing. She started off cosplaying superheroes and mastering spandex but has since moved on to film, TV and video games. She has also competed in competitions like ECG. Anna could quite happily make costumes for herself and others but never wear them as its the making process she loves most, not the actual wearing of them. Ever time she makes something new she tries to incorporate a new skill or technique no matter how easy or difficult it might be, but her main love will always be sewing spandex. Facebook: Anna S (https://www.facebook.com/AnnaKS100) Instagram: AnnaS100 (http://instagram.com/annas100) Lisa-Marie Lisa has been attending conventions for 5 years, and cosplaying for 3. After admiring the brilliant costumes she saw at the events, she had to try it out herself and has been hooked ever since. Lisa loves the simple fact that through cosplay she can become all of her favourite fictional characters, if just for the day. LFCC in 2010 was in fact her first convention in cosplay, so an anniversary of sorts. She has made around 30 costumes in 3 years, and her collection keeps growing. She has cosplayed all sorts of characters from Lara Croft and Amy Pond to Disney Princesses and Comic Book heroines learning different techniques and using new materials as she goes. Lisa is delighted to be appearing at Cardiff as a cosplay star guest. https://www.facebook.com/LisaMarieCosplay DizzieDee Cosplay Dizzy is a Welsh Cosplayer, cosplaying for 4 years, inspired by her love of video games, comic books and cartoons.
