For those of you planning to enter our Cosplay masquerade we are pleased to confirm the Cosplay sign-up page is now live.
We can also announce the three guest judges for the weekend:
“Lunacille (aka Julie) is a cosplayer and photographer from Ayrshire, Scotland. She discovered the world of cosplay and the huge community in 2013 through her photography. This sparked an interest in cosplay photography and eventually decided it was time to truly get into cosplay herself. Julie focuses on only cosplaying characters who she loves and covers a range of areas including Video Games, Movies and TV. She especially loves cosplaying from her all time favourite TV show, The Walking Dead! Her main type of cosplays are Genderbends and Gijinkas and loves the challenge of redesigning characters, her favourite so far being everyone's favourite ogre, Shrek”

Mike Lawson, you may know him as WYSHcreative, is a digital artist and custom prop & costume fabricator. Mike has been creating his own costumes for the last 15 years. However the cosplay explosion in recent times has energised his creativity and allowed him to expand his skillset to designing and building custom fabricated props, helmets, masks and armour. With around 10 full personal costumes and countless commissions to his name he has a real eye for detail and the handcrafted. Be it huge fully fabricated armour, or that movie accurate prop piece, he’s tackled it all. A true child of the 80s he loves the 'nostalgia factor' and creates things from Comics, Video Games and Movies.
