Kat the Red was born and raised in Salem, OR and is happy to be attending MiyakoCon for the first time! An award-winning veteran cosplayer of almost fifteen years, she holds multiple awards in both craftsmanship and performance. Her love for cosplay permeates through her panels that inspire and encourage cosplay as a tool for building self-esteem and learning life-long skills. Her favorite animes include Cardcaptor Sakura, Azumanga Dai-Oh!, and Speed Grapher.
Hello! My name is Emma though I also go by rainydaysandtiramisu on most social media platforms! I’m a professional cosplayer, which isn’t saying much since most of my work as a professional cosplayer is done in my pajamas. I’ve only been cosplaying for about two years now, so I’m still a baby in the cosplay community, but I’m working hard to grow every day! Unfortunately, when it comes to gaining experience in the cosplay world a lot of mistakes and crying is involved, but I’m getting there, slowly, but surely! I’ve hosted and participated in a multitude of panels (most of them successful but everyone experiences a few train wrecks along the way) and I’ve hosted at a few conventions now as well. I’m excited to be working alongside MiyakoCon this year and I hope it will be a good one!
Lily loves Minecraft and anime and lives the Kawaii culture. Her dreams are to become a YouTube personality and to see the Eiffel Tower lit up at night. Although she has assisted with many panels, this will be her first convention as a panelist for Creation Station.
An avid fan of HP, GOT, BSG, SW, STTNG, ATLA and much more. Find me to try to use your nerd knowledge to identify the symbols on my armband tattoo.
Joseph is an avid fan of anime and fantasy, and can frequently be seen in excellent Robb Stark and Jon Snow cosplay. He is also well-known for his dead-on L cosplay. He prefers not to be called Giuseppe.
Japanese Talk Online is a website that provides articles all about studying Japanese, as well as Memrise courses to help you learn! We talk mostly about study tips and tricks, ways to teach yourself Japanese, and learning Japanese through media.
Hildurgalaxy has been cosplaying since 2006 and has been in love with it ever since. He loves creating and helping others create and find their passion in the creative world of cosplay.
Fleur de minuit cosplay is made up of two people, Shannon and Moira. The group is fairly new as the two have only known each other a short while. Fleur de minuit cosplay mostly do Hetalia cosplays but have done others.
Moira is a sweet but shy person who just recently started full cosplay but has experience with casual cosplay. Shannon is also a very sweet person but not nearly as shy as Moira, she has more experience in cosplay.
