This weekend, September 4 – 6, 2020, kicks off the Virtual Crunchyroll Expo (VCRX). Crunchyroll Expo like many other events have switched things up from their usual in-person format to a virtual one. The event will connect anime fans together with each other and with special guests. One of those guests is Kamui Cosplay who will be one of the judges at this year’s Crunchyroll-Hime’s Cosplay Cup.
Kamui Cosplay aka Svetlana is an internationally renowned costume and content creator, author, teacher, and YouTuber from Germany. She has over 17 years of experience. Having created many award-winning costumes,with her husband Benni as well as a long-running series of popular instructional books, video tutorials, and crafting patterns for home printing.
Additionally, Kamui is well respected and widely known for the support she gives. She loves sharing her knowledge, techniques, and experience with the world, and always finds ways to help cosplay veterans and newcomers alike. She’s a popular cosplay guest at conventions and events worldwide, running workshops, Q&As, and crafting panels.
I got the chance to ask Kamui some questions via email ahead of the VCRX cosplay competition, where she explained her most challenging cosplay outfit, her favorite thing about cosplay, and the advice she passes onto first time cosplay crafters.
BUT WHY THO: What has been your favorite thing about cosplaying after all of this time?
This year’s Crunchyroll-Hime’s Cosplay Cup will feature an international group of finalists competing for thousands of dollars in cash and prizes in a cosplay competition. You won’t want to miss the chance to see passionate fans use their crafting skills and cosplay videos to bring anime to life in this highly-anticipated event.
