SUNNYCON ANIME EXPO NEWCASTLE
JUNE 22nd - 24th 2018 COUNTDOWN:
Cosplay is one of the biggest parts of SunnyCon Anime Expo and we love it!
Returning once more for 2018 will be our cosplay competition where we will incorporate a Master, Rising Stars and Non Competitive contest competition. We will also have a cosplay repair area on hand for on the day repairs. Registrations open on January 13th at 6pm here.
We are proud to have a special cosplay judge for SunnyCon Anime Expo 2018 with Dania A.K.A The Hijabi Hooligan. Famous for her cosplays which mix the traditional outfits with a hijab twist, Dania is based right here in the north east and her unique cosplays such as Wonder Woman, Captain America, Loki and Katana just to name a few have earned her plaudits all over the world including a special feature on the BBC. Dania will be one of our judges over the weekend for our cosplay contest and will be running special talks and panels over the weekend too.
Kenny (Kenny Cosplay Stuff) was first introduced to cosplay in May 2013. Since then he had fallen in love the scene. Specialising in armour building, he has created various cosplays from films and games.
Kenny enjoys performing on stage which has lead on to him representing the UK in the Cosplay World Masters and European Cosplay Gathering. He aims to inspire others by sharing his knowledge and techniques via tutorials and giving talks at conventions.
