Moley will be showing you the basic principles of origami and pepakura so you can start making awesome cool stuff with nothing more than paper, a printer, some scissors and glue. Please note that Moley may begin swearing at inanimate objects during this panel.
We are very happy to welcome two wonderfully talented Norwegian cosplayers as our guests, namely Santatory and Timeforlemontea. They are both experienced cosplayers with a number of stunning works in their portfolio, especially when it comes to sewing. And, luckily for us they are here to share some of that skill! They will be holding panels on the following topics:
So you’ve decided you want to cosplay a certain character. Now what? This panel leads you thought the long and winding road from deciding on a character, researching and finding references and choosing the right materials and techniques for your project. In short, how to make the best possible plan, and how to actually follow through with it.
Whether you want your very own pair of spacepants or just a shiny new picture on your wall, this is a workshop you don’t want to miss. Learn the secrets and try your hand at painting galaxies far far away under Tab’s expert guidance.
From sailor moon ‘cousins’ to guns removed into Yugioh, Tab talks through some hilarious examples of how anime is changed when it crosses borders.
You know how skits look in your own country- but how do other places do them? Sit down and watch some of the best cosplay shows the world has to offer then talk about the differences between them!
Our favourite brits are back for more adventures at Banzai. They’re here to drink tea and entertain, and they’re all out of tea (apparently we don’t do it right over here.) That still leaves us with lots of great entertainment. In addition to taking the stage in the Banzai-show, they will also host a number of panels and workshops:
Cosplay Skits Around the World with Tab
How to paint space – Workshop with Tab
Mystery Science TARDIS 300 with Christian (featuring Tab)
(Don’t believe their self-depreciating humour. These guys are great!)
In this panel Cami Cosplay and Yoshu Cosplay will guide you through various techniques to make your costumes stand out and be more visually interesting. This will cover embroidery, canadian smocking as well as other forms of three dimensional detail work and how to do it all without making the costume too busy for the eyes.
A must see for anyone with an eye for details!
