Last years’ Cosplay Guests
Our cosplay guests judged the cosplay contest, and hosting a range of events in our day time program and @Night program. Check out who we had in 2019!
NerdCoreCreation (Dave Barnes) has always had an artistic streak, working for Hanna Barbera at 17 and Walt Disney at 18. But it was at his first convention in 2016 that he fell in love with cosplay.
As the Overwatch tank Reinhardt, Dave won 3 gold medals at SupaNova, Best in Show 2017 at ComicGong, Winner and crowd favourite at GAMMA.CON 2018 and took the stage for OzComicCon’s Australian Championships of Cosplay in Sydney 2018.
Danielle “WhereisDanielle” Debs has made a name for herself with full scale Halo armor builds, solidifying her name in the global cosplaying community last year with the title of Cosplayer of the Year by the Australian Games Awards.
She began with no prior trained skills in crafting or sewing, and learned through trial and error, with a side of stubbornness.
Last year Danielle built five new full armour costumes, largest build to date is her Overwatch Brigitte costume, she documents her build process on Instagram and Twitch.
Overall winner of the Australian Championships of cosplay in 2016, and representing the Crown Championships of Cosplay in Chicago Henchwench (Clare Beaton) is a cosplayer, props maker, mad gamer and all-round nerd.
At 14 Henchwench worked part-time and Weta Workshops on the Lord of the Rings movies in the weapons and armour department and later studied a degree in costume at NIDA.
Her cosplay includes characters from Blizzard games, Fallout, Quake Champions, and Assassin’s Creed.
Scrap Shop Props (Oarin Tremont) has combined his background of engineering with larping to build amazing cosplay.
Scrap Shop Props cosplay has included Garrus Varkarian from Mass Effect 3, a huge 7-foot Reinhardt which premiered at the Sydney Overwatch World Cup, and a Doom Slayer which won Best in Show at Sydney Supanova 2018.
Cosplay has been a big confidence boost to Oarin which changed the way he approached the world. He looks forward to seeing you at GAMMA.CON 2019!
