Self-introduction

Hi, I’m K and I’ve been cosplaying since 2000! I enjoy making my own costumes, learning new cosplay techniques, doing performances and best of all – meeting people all over the world who have the same passion for creating and expressing the love of their favourite characters, stories and designs in Anime/Manga & games! I strive to challenge myself to learn new skills and incorprate my love of Martial Arts and Acrobatics into my cosplay performances. I have a white cat called Artemis…everyone calls him Bub!

Favorite manga and Japanese anime

"Anime: Evangelion
Current Manga – Boku no Hero Academia & Skip Beat "

What does "Japan" mean to you?

Japan is a place close to my heart. I adore its modern pop culture - including its Anime, Manga, games, Cosplay and music. I also love the language, food and its traditional culture. I have studied Kyudo (Japanese Archery) for 14 years and am currently a 3rd Dan. I hope to become a "Renshi" one day and teach Kyudo in Australia! Ramen is my favourite food & I am also an English-Japanese translator / interpreter for Conventions & Festival guests!

A.K.WIRRU

Self-introduction

I'm A.K. WIRRU.
I'm a cosplayer, costume artist and workshop presenter since 2006.
I have been crafting since I was 5 years old when I was really into anime prop replica (specifically those really expensive Sailor Moon transformation brooches and wands...) and my parents told me "why don't you try making your own?". It all started from there. My free time since childhood has been spent doing one artistic project or another: prop crafting, music writing, drawing, performing etc.

I started using my skills specifically for Cosplay in 2006. Since that time I was hooked onto the craftsmanship and competitive side of cosplay crafting.
My main focus as a cosplayer is to be as diverse and open-minded in my craft as possible. Ie. To not be limited to the proper way of making something, and not limited to one specialty like sewing, prop making or armour building. I love to use and learn whatever skills and medium it takes to achieve my desired result, and sharing it with everyone along the way!
Outside of cosplay I am a Karate instructor/competitor, casual high school Japanese teacher, aspiring soundtrack composer, and a merciless pun dropper. But let's be real, all of these things end up getting used in cosplay one way or another in the end so is it really "outside of cosplay"?
My one true love is REM sleep.

Favorite manga and Japanese anime

GUNBUSTER, Evangelion, Made in Abyss

What does "Japan" mean to you?

Japan is like an "origin" to me. I became a fan of anime and manga because I loved drawing form a young age. That led me to my interest in the Japanese language, and eventually to festivals, Karate, and conventions. And then I found cosplay. Now I work doing cosplay, karate, and teaching Japanese. So Japan, to me, is the birthplace of all of my defining skills at the moment. None of it was exactly intentional. It just happened this way haha.
